Some of the biggest atrocities in histlory have been performed by people claiming to be doing it in the name of Christianity.

To name but a few:

Torture and murder by the inquisition
Untold amounts of wars
The burning or heretics
The bombing of the IRA and the UDA (prodestants V Catholics)

You can't blame islam for the acts of a few lunatics any more than you can blame the murder and maiming of innocent people in the name of a christian religioj on Christianity.

All religions are the beliefs of deluded individuals who can't face the finality of their own death.
