African Americans today are mainly Christian because they want to embrace the beauty and truth of Christianity. Who wouldn't want to be a follower of Christ?
Many were introduced to the Christian faith just like how early Christians were, nothing wrong. Christians are encouraged to spread the good news.

The fact that you have to go to a time period centuries before America existed to make your point just illustrates how non-violent Christians are.

USA: This Is What America Would Be Like As a Christian Nation Read the article OP posted perhaps.
Some Christians do share many similarities to Muslims. Theoretically speaking, if America became a Christian nation, many of the laws could be similar to Islamic theocracy.

You said you had the verses. You took the time to make the point. Now you don't want to back it up. Bogus point you made there.

Really?

Was the Yugoslav War, when Catholic Croatian militias and Serbian Orthodox militias tried to exterminate the Muslim population of Bosnia, "centuries before America existed?

Oh...and those massacres and genocides were done with the blessing of their respective churches, in case you didn't know.

Google is my friend. If he's not yours, that's between you and him.

I've got nothing to do with that. Be a better friend or something....whatever.

I said that i had the verses pointed out to me. Not that i dug up those verses myself.

Reading is fundamental.

Let's see here, the Crusaders were Christians who went to take back various cities and regions from the Muslims. Here's a question, how did the Muslims come in possession of these cities and regions? Were there any battles involved when they became Muslim?

Ah hogwash, everyone knows that the Muslims just happened to walk around and discover half of Europe. Everyone there loved Muhammeds followers, such a pleasant lot. Then a bunch of uppity white racist christians decided to go kill some brown people. There you have it the Crusades according to Orion.
