Um, neither is Islam. What are Islamists doing there in the first place?

Took all of one post before a progressive tried to compare Islamists cutting people's heads off with Christians trying to protect unborn babies. Not a real surprise.

So, you have 2 introduced religions to the area and you defend the slaughtering of one by the other by stating that it's not a "native religion"?

Wow.

Wow.

Religions are creations of man, how can any be considered 'native' to a particular land?

Okay, so why are their Christians in Ireland and Norway? They were happy to worship their old pagan gods and follow the ways of their ancestors, until some imperialists from Rome can with swords.

And why are the Muslims in Nigeria? It's pretty far from the Arabian peninsula...

Not really true. Christianity began spreading into Africa peacefully mind you as early as 1st century AD long centuries before islam was concocted in Saudi Arabia. I'm not surprised you'd be more partial to islam despite brutalizing Africans.

Christianity doesn't teach you to smite your enemies.

And there aren't two divisions akin to Sunni and Shiite that are killing each other.

Islam was in Nigeria before Christianity. Many slaves that came here in the Trans Atlantic trade were Muslims. None were Christians. Nigeria is one of the many areas of West Africa where slaves came from

That tells me all I need to know. This ainít an endorsement of Islam, it just the truth. Modern day African Americans are only Christians because their slave masters were Christians. Which is of course one of the main reasons why Iím not a Christian.

Like hell.

Thereís no shortage of Christian bad behavior in history. If Islamists did bad things because of their common religion, then Iím holding Christians to the same standard.
