I'll let the readers decide which is baloney
Or let people see how Muslims behave today (ISIS as an example)... Forgot 9/11 already?? and read the history and life of Muhammad and compare it with Jesus.

That's the problem with many commenters. They rage on incessantly on topics that they have very little knowledge about. Especially when it comes to religion, specifically Christianity.

And to your last point. Newsflash. Everything you read on the internet is not true.
Newsflash.

Once upon a time there was a contingent of Christian preachers who preached that the mark of Cain was black skin, and that second-class citizenship was the burden placed on black men by God.

Not true. Islam has been violent from 7th century (day Muhammad started the religion) until today. Islamic History 101....

I don't know. The Bible is neutral on slavery - it only notes that some people were slaves, and told them how to behave.
That's not neutral. That's tacit approval.

Sadly not that many; however, you cannot bash the entire faith based on that.

Thanks for that. At least now we know the position of the overwhelming majority of the Islamic community (based on their silence) with regards to Al Qaeda/ISIS and their tactics.

If you can justify your actions, then who is to say whether you are a true Christian or not? If you BELIEVE that you are a true Christian, then who are YOU to say that someone is not. There are thousands of different beliefs regarding Christianity. How many churches, denominations, interpretations? And yet here you are, evidently claiming you have the expertise to determine which church is the true church, which denomination is the true denomination, which interpretation is the true interpretation? On what is your expertise based? Your personal beliefs, your personal experiences, those long talks you've had with God?

Not that anything I would say would change your viewpoint... but whatever.
