Yet another Christian bashing Islam thread. I'll summarize the last 16 pages in a few sentences. All Muslims are bad and all Christians are good. My religion is better than yours because the Bible doesn't advocate violence, right? And BTW, there are Christian terrorist groups out there. And Christians are certainly sometimes violent as well.

Why do you say this is Christian bashing Islam.

This is an Islam thread and has nothing to do with Christianity.

I am also a little curious of these Christian terror groups you speak of, and please, Kony is not an example.

This was mentioned a long time ago; albeit there was not an immediate reaction.

Nothing new, and some of the challenges faced by moderate Muslims, who, BTW, are what most Muslims in North America are.

Phffffttt.... all muslims are bad and all christians are good?

ANYone who is a fundamentalist and let's their faith determine their interaction towards others is delusional. There are plenty of fundy christians who spew hate towards their fellow man for various reasons; fortunately most of them do not become violent... most. That is still a specialty of muslim extremists for the most part.
There are a few wackos that are of the jewish faith also.

The common thread? Believing literally in books dictated by superstitious, mostly illiterate wandering tribes of desert goat herders.

The interfaith squabbling here is a prime example of the problem religion causes. Remove all religions from the equation and this conversation would be redundant. Nevertheless, in the early 21st century, in terms of a large minority of the bellicose, the primitive - an aggressive stridency, I'd say it's apparent Islam has the decided edge.

Of course, people who are non-religious are peace-loving, like Lenin and Stalin.

Like Pope Francis?

There are some "delusional" non-believers out there, too.

Bad examples, Stalin was hardly peace loving.
He was a murderous tyrant.

Without religion progress is in with a chance, with religion - (the antithesis of progress) it's doomed to fail.
