Where the heck did I say Jesus picked up a sword????I was talking about the crusaders e.g and that Martyrs are praised in the Bible as well.I guess you are blind thinkin Christianity is all peaceful eh?I dont mean to say Islam never fought and Muslims never killed Christians but here Christians and Muslims are EQUAL bloody heck,I really love Islam as a relgion I consider for myself but Im not blind.
By the way its quite funny,I didnt speak about Jesus picking up a sword but you point out on him speaking about all of Christianity...Jesus AINT god you know...how strange I find that thing with Jesus being treated like god...Christians more pray to Jesus than to God actually...if you "defend" your religion then defend the one who created it and not one single messenger thats Jesus....religion is about God and not about praising his messengers as gods.Not even Mohamed in Islam is overpraised like Jesus in Christianity..dont get it but its not the point of discussion.Fact is that every religion tried and still tries to eradicate the other and no member of each should intentionally ignore things they dont really like as humans coz that just leads to radicalism.I dont like to read about battles amongst Christians and Muslims in the Quran but I acknowledge them at least...you should do that,too:

God will kill the Egyptian children to show that he puts "a difference between the Egyptians and Israel." 11:7

All nations shall be terrorized by the followers of Yahweh. 2:25

The Israelites, with God's help, kill all the men, women, and children of every city. 3:3-6

When going to war, don't be afraid. God is on your side; "he shall fight for you." 3:22

God instructs the Israelites to kill, without mercy, all the inhabitants (strangers) of the land that they conquer. 7:2

If you hear of a city where another god is worshiped, then destroy everyone in the city (even the cattle) and burn it down.

Just a few examples.They dont mention Jesus killing anyone but they are just to show you that violence in the Bible and also violence against others than Christians is permitted.If you are still blinded,read this:

Kill those of other faiths. 12:30

Kill everyone who has religious beliefs that are different from your own. 17:2-7

SO????Now comment on that eh?

At least if you throw stones,make sure you are not sitting in a glass house.By quoting that I dont mean to defend Islam,I dont mean to claim Islam is perfect and Christianity aint,I only pasted that to make you see that BOTH religions got this cruelty aspect.Its up to US who choose the one or the other religion for us to measure the righteousness of that with the help of our 21st century human minds you know?Maybe you hate me now for insulting your religion but from my point of view I dont hate you,nor do I think of you as evil,bad or whatever.I respect if you think Islam is not the right thing, for me it is, but I also respect that you think Christianity is right. The only thing I cant accept is that you say things like you want to stop Islam and that you fighting hard putting everything Islamic in a bad light,ignoring that the same exists in your Religion. As i said in one of my last entries I guess,our religions got THE SAME roots.If you wanna go on fighting send me an email.Bye.
