Muslims vs. Christians: who’s the bigger terrorist?

Post asserts that, as expected, the critique of Major Hassan has turned into a condemnation of Islam. Truthfully & historically speaking though, Christianity & the Bible have been a source of terror for many. Whether it’s the subjugation of women in the American home, the enslavement of Africans, or the destruction of Native Americans, Christianity does not have clean hands. Christianity has served as a force for good for millions of people throughout out history, but we can’t neglect the evil. Islam has also made great contributions to the world, particularly in areas like math and science. The goal of this post is not to compare religious contributions. The goal is to remind us that one person’s terrorist is another person’s freedom fighter. Many reading this will say that the enslavers, for example, weren’t true Christians but will say the 911 hijackers represented true Islam. That’s hypocritical. Every religion has blood on its hands. Less blood will be shed if we stopped condemning each other’s religions and embraced them instead wherever possible.

    Christians can live in a country with people of differing religions. Correct me if I am wrong but isn’t it true that the Koran tells followers that they cannot exist with the non-believers? Islam is in Europe trying to institute Sharia law (Britain for example). Why should the Brits stand by and see their century’s old legal systems threatened?

    Christians know they are not perfect or they would not confess their sins. They try to live by God’s commandments one of which is “to love one another.”

    Do not think for a moment that the European culture will die without a fight. Islamists cannot blast Buddhas in Afghanistan and expect the world not to see that militants among them wish to erase all other cultures.

    Do not come at Christians with this you are not better than we stuff. We all know that. The question is: What are you going to do to move toward understanding and mutual acceptance? But the Koran does not allow that.

    I sounded a bit more “shrill” in my comment than I had meant to.

    I take pot shots at Obama even though I voted for him. He has just taken too sharp a fiscal left turn for me. BUT I do have some posts that are well thought out IMO.
