Donvan: "The fact is that the more christians we have in a country, the violence dimminishes and is less frequent."

You still have not given a source for your claim, but have switched the subject.

Donvan: "The narrative of Islam is violence as dogma. Look it up."

You are making the statement(s) how bout you look up the facts that you base your statements on and get back?

One thing I beleive you are failing to realize is that the Christians tend to believe their morals and values are superior to darker skinned people, and you know...

They can't kill just one. They feel the need to spread Christianity (democracy) outside their borders, and while they're there building colonies, killing leaders, installing puppet governments, they'll just plunder, denationalize, sell or give away the resources, redraw the borders, and knock them back into the middle ages.

Take a look at Moses, he wiped whole cities out, calling to kill all women children and animals.
I don't think the Quran says that kind of stuff, does it?
Islam grew out of Christianity and they have a lot of the same beliefs.

Don't forget about Ponce de leon and the discovery of the new world. A whole race is missing from there. Easter Island too. I could go on, but I'd have to do actual research.

You are demonizing them because they are Muslim. It's a whole lot easier to hang terror on them because of their religion, than look at other reasons why they dislike us more now than ever. One thing that hasn't been done in years is to listen and actually hear what they are saying.
Pound for pound we are way ahead in the killing game.

This horrible government did a bad bad thing. They used demogougery against Islam to justify the war they wanted, and it has unleashed the mobs. McCain continues to use language like Islamo-fascim. I don't think that senile war monger even knows what he's saying most of the time.

I'm not saying they don't have issues. The report on Afganistan's women and the Taliban was terrible, but the reporter that did that series was shot in the head by an Isreali soldier on purpose. Rachel Corrie was flattened by a bulldozer in Gaza. Those weren't muslims that did that, and why doesn't our government have a problem with her death?

We need to settle down and think with our heads and not out of fear and hate. Understanding and humanity goes a long way. You don't hear them saying Christianity is evil.

They say the great imperialist is evil, and they do make distinctions between us and our evil doer leaders.
