Who are you to say who is or is not xian? Hitler was xian, raised catholic. Most xians I know are not saints by any stretch of the imagination. Throughout mankind xians have been brutal and murderous. Just acknowledge the facts.

Some of these countries outlaw the bible, and local fellowship among Christians. I could understand if maybe one or two countries acted like this, but that's not the case.
It might do you some good to read about Turkey and the Turkish empire.
Xians are more prone to disallow/disavow any other beliefs.

We acknowledge them, question is, how come you don't seem to acknowledge what is going on TODAY/Today's Islam?

Yeah, I recommend you read that as well, especially the part about the Armenian Genocide.

One HUGE fundamental difference is that Islamic (Muslim) followers not only believe and trust in their faith, but their religious leaders as well. The same is not so for Christians. Christians pick which sect of Christianity works best for them and their social life choices (Lutheran, Catholic, Protestant, Presbyterian, etc.).

If the Pope and other Christian leaders ever called for a "Holy War" against Muslims, I think all 10 people responding to the call could meet at the same airport, because none of the other Christians trust their religious leaders or religion as much. They will hide behind the "Christians are peaceful people" notion as not to inconvenience their life.

Let's hope it never comes down to a true religious war, the Christians will look as pushover as the French in WWII.

you say religion is all about peace and love, when the reality is very much the opposite.
religion is the prime factor of most wars that occur in soceity, believe it or not.
the irony in that is fantastic
