Fact is Christianity and Islam are very similar... and both based on terrorism.

Change a couple of name here and there and ya'll are essentially the same bunch of fanatics.
If the founders of both religions could only be summed up by one word:
Jesus - hippie
Muhammad - terrorist
Sina's Challenge

The most IRONIC thing of all is that this entry was published by a PRO-LIFE Pastor with an email and website address of armyofgod! LMAO. This isn't anything more than a propaganda piece on BEHALF of this organization. D'oh!

Jennifer Jefferis. Armed for Life: The Army of God and Anti-Abortion Terror in the United States | Cotter | Perspectives on Terrorism

The Terrorist Organization is described as:

"a distinctly amorphous organization, held together by a single idea: abortion is murder and therefore it must be countered by any means necessary. Paying scholarly attention to the Army is important for two reasons. First, the organization has proven to be extremely harmful: it has taken numerous lives, destroyed health care facilities, and threatened the safety and freedom of both those accessing and those providing reproductive healthcare. Second, the loose structure characterizing the Army reflects a burgeoning trend in terrorism – ‘leaderless resistance’.

There are Christians who are pro-abortion and there are pro-life advocates who are not Christian, so again, your attempt to demonize Christianity and Christians is a FAIL!

Yeah, there they go, right after your failed attempt at demonizing Christians.

Cromwell's Glorious Revolution, was that back in 2010?

Why do Christophobes have to reach back into the middle and dark ages to prop up their false arguments?

His actions had NOTHING to do with religious fanaticism. The only basis you have for that allegation is that an identified paramilitary anti-abortion group claimed a link. The perpetrator denied any ties or motives related to the AOG or Christianity and the AOG was never brought into the case or charged with any involvement in that crime.

Stop looking for something, anything you can find to prop up your preconceived and false conclusion about Christianity having anything to do with Terrorism.

Last week the happy couple in San Bernardino killed more people in a few minutes on behalf of Islam than the Army of God has in its 35 years of obscure existence.


Yes, there are individual and groups of Christian terrorists, but this repetitive comparison of them to Muslims in the year 2015 is crazy.

Is religion based on fear? | Clare Carlisle | Comment is free | The Guardian
That has to be THE MOST absurd and delusional statement regarding a 2000 year old religion I have ever heard. I see that you formed this opinion based on an article published in 2013.

Your in-depth study and comprehension of theology is not lost on me. Not for one second.

The argument is old, but it's not false. If you were honest (a rarity among christians), you'd see that.

IMO, christians ARE a few hundred years more evolved than islam. Stands to reason since they've been around a few hundred years longer. But fundamentally ya'll are one and the same. Turn or burn. Convert or die.

I reject the absolutes of Abrahamic religions. Come at me Bro!

Ever heard of the Ku Klux Klan burning crosses? Ever hear of Jim Jones and the People's Temple? How about David Koresh at Waco, or Tim McVeigh at Oklahoma City? What about the Nazis in World War II? Nazi Germany was a Christian nation. The Vatican even arranged passports and relocation of Nazis after the war to start new lives in South America. How about all the Christian dictators like Pinochet in Chile. How about the CIA? Killing for Jesus has been real popular. That's what happens when religion is perverted into a tool for greed, power and hatred.
