in response to reader comment: Mass murderers of History

First and foremost, I would like to point out that Adolf Hitler was no Christian, and exemplified no Christian values, nor any values found in any religion. Second, painting all Westerners as mass murderers is just as racist and wrong as someone making that statement about Muslims or any other group. No race or culture is devoid of wrongs and atrocities, so lets not get carried away with our anti-western propaganda. I will be the first to admit that the Europeans and Americans have caused a lot of the world's problems, but they are not alone. We are all human, and no one group is better than another. Thirdly, the tolerance within the Muslim world may have been true in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, but even then was only true if non-Muslims paid exponentially higher taxes than Muslims. The tolerance seems to have lessened, judging by the fact that Christianity is ILLEGAL in most Muslim countries.
