Mike et.al.,

You have GOT to be kidding. The Catholic Church does not base it's canons on violence like Mohammed based his in Islam. Many of the accounts of Inquisition-related violence are exaggerated or untrue altogether. A few months back, William Federer of World Net Daily wrote a wonderful article comparing Jesus to Mohammad...read it and educate yourself before you ever again have the bizarre notion of comparing anything Christian to anything Islamic....doing so will help you to avoid such an erroneous comparison in the future.

While you are at it, go pick up a few books by Robert Spencer and Bruce Bawer to fill in the gaps on your understanding of Islam's violence and mercilessness throughout the centuries.
