Christianity does not have any passage in it's holy book that directs followers to make the world forcibly christian.. or to rid the world of non-chritians. I think it is clear in Christ's actions on earth that all people were welcomed to learn from his glory... prostitutes, jews, gentiles, lepers, and all other types. Please do not compare the two religions because this would only serve to show your ignorance in the matter.

For anyone to have an opinion, they must first read both holy books, live amongst both cultures, and be objective in their decisions. Christ taught us to turn the other cheek.. just as the Catholic Church asks for peace as Churches are being bombed throughout the world. One word from the Pope would send Catholics form all over the world into battle mode... but he refuses to stoop to that level. Name one prominent, respected muslim leader who has effectively called for peace from his people?

Name one muslim leader who has sought to punish the terrorists who claimed so many lives in 9/11.

The differences between Christianity and Islam are clear. You are right in stating that all religions have "bad apples", but we must look at each religion in it's purest sense... in the sense that the figure-head of the religion envisioned it (ie Christ, Mohammed). The truth is Islam was formed under a permiscuous, war monger... therefore, they will always seek war and permescuity. Christianities roots should speak for themselves. Respect.
