"AND MY POINT IS THIS IF MUSLIMS HAD DONE TO THE WEST, WHAT THE WEST HAS DONE TO MUSLIMS, HOW WOULD U FEEL. CONSIDERING HOW U FEEL NOW DUE THE ACTS OF A FEW DRIVEN CRAZY BY OPPRESSION AND SEEING THEIR PEOPLE KILLED, ROBED AND RAPED"

Christianity has been THE most bloodthirsty and power crazed sect of all the religions, thres no doubt about that. I get what you are saying about if the muslims had done to west what Christians have done to then over the centuries, how would we feel.....I feel that Muslims would have a lot of catching up to do.......if that is what you want...?? However, you loose any moral highground by attempting to excuse "act of a few" by saying they were driven to it. Sure, if they had witnessed their loved ones be raped and murdered then you could say they were drivien to it. But if you wish to compete with the Christians ....or use them as a some sort of benchmark for your own behaviour, you may as well become one....Im sure theyd be glad of a new recruit since western europe has turned it back on their faith and all its disgusting behavior. The pope neednt worry how hes gonna police his flocks thoughts, when theres people like you willing to do that for him. And please note it is always down to the "acts of a few" that cause suffering to many, and should never be accepted.
