Christianity does not do that...

Or Hinduism it seems....

How odd,only one religion in todays world seems bent on taking control through violence.
Or Wiccans....

Or followers of Jainism....

Or Sikhism....

Or Shintoism...

It is only Islam. Why is it that Islam is the only religion who does what they do?

I am an Atheist and defend Christianity all the time when compared to Islam. When people bring up Christianity when discussing Islam, I think they are weak. There are nuts in every religion but at least Christians as a majority have evolved. To me, Islam is just pathetic. The ONLY religion I do not respect 100 percent.

I can say I have done research already. Last semester, I picked Christianity for my religions course. I learned a lot. It is a nice religion with the exception of the nuts. Even then with the nuts, it cannot compare to Islam.

Islam is just nutty alongside their pedophile hateful rapist prophet. Jesus Christ helped people, fed them, taught them morals, and was loving. He was great. Jesus Christ is one of the religious figures I have total respect for.

That's because people are to stupid to stop killing each other.

Funny you say that from Brazil, one of the most messed up places in the world. Brazil is full of drugs, violence, and sex, there are no Muslim countries close to being as bad as Brazil.

Sadly they are not. at the forefront are Al Quada, Hamas, the Saud Royal Family and the Ayatollah of Iran.

None of those represent modernist peaceful Islam.

there are two things that ought to be happening in the non-Islamic west.

First, we should not being playing the "but there are bad Christians too" game

Second, we should be pointing to the Modernists within Islam and offering them our hands in friendship all the while stating clearly that Islam as a major force in the world today has a very serious problem that has the potential of completely over running the religion entirely.

I'm also an atheist, and I wasn't making an argument, just asked a question.
