Christianity is more "fundamentalist" and "evil" than Islam

Reader comment on item: Islam's Future [Can Be Modern]

Submitted by E.A (United States), Oct 23, 2002 at 21:25

I'm tired of Muslims in America being on the defensive end of all the issues. Let's assess Christianity for a few seconds, shall we? The Nazi party was christian ... Christians brought thousands upon thousands of black MUSLIMS from Africa and annihilated their religion, family, and identity. They would use the bible to justify slavery. A Christian pope declared the crusades, not the Muslims. The Inquisition was Christian, not Muslim. Christians killed off the natives of North America, called them an inferior race, shipped them to reservations, and then withheld food from them until they converted. Coronado, Cortez, and all the other Spanish conquerers killed off the natives in South America because they weren't white Christians and therefore, inferior.

The Catholic Church has been wrong so many times that it's almost funny. They have done nothing but impede science and reason. They imprisoned Galileo because he believed that the earth revolved around the sun. They beat and killed Tycho Brahe, a brilliant astronomer, through the streets because he too disagreed with the church. They tried to stop the age of reason. It required the annihilation of pretty much all of northern Germany to get the mighty Huns to covert to Christianity.

The acts of brutality go on and on. I can fill up all the pages of any book with acts of Christian brutality. In fact, the bible is more fundamentalist and conservative than the Qu'ran ever was. According to the bible, women can't speak in churches, ever become religious leaders, and are subordinate to men. Homosexuals should be put to death, and divorce is a sin! In that case, 48% of Americans have committed a very serious offense.

I'm tired of hearing about islam being a horrible religion. The next time any ignorant Christian attacks the Koran or Islam, don't put your head down and be content to defend yourself. Question his/her faith instead. In the end, all religions have done horrible acts of brutality. The only reason Christianity has done more is because it's been around longer with more adherents. That's all. But to attack islam and call it an evil, fundamentalist religion, especially if those insults are coming from Christians, is silly.
