It's funny how people always slander Muslims and call them terrorists when I can bet those people have never met a REAL Muslim. In my experience most people of the Muslim religion that I have met were actually really nice and never pushed there beliefs on me and never tried to attack me rofl. Stereotypes are just that... Stereotypes.. they are stupid and if you read the Koran yes it can be interpreted for good or for evil BUT it is up to the person reading the book, and that's something ALL religions are guilty of.
Nonsense. The doctrine of Jihad [Holy War] is foundational to the Quran. Misinterpretation is not a deflection in this case. Jihad is not just a "small number of Muslims"...it is happening world wide, crosses cultural, religious, ethnic, national borders in scope. The "nice verses" in the Quran have a very specific context...in that a person willingly submits. And if you resist? Jihad rears it's ugly head. The point with equating rouge actions of self proclaimed Christians with Jihad Muslims is completely flipped flopped in it's mechanics. If someone claims to be a follower of Christ, yet demonstrates imperialistic militaristic behavior to somehow establish a Christian theocratic rule...there is no context for it within the teachings of Jesus or the apostles. But when a Muslim does these things in the name of allah, they are purely following the path of words & deeds Muhammad layed out.
"I shall terrorize the infidels. So wound their bodies and incapacitate them because they oppose Allah and His Apostle."

I dont think you understood the comparison I was making, if you disagree then show why it's wrong but claiming it's false doesnt make it false. There are different sects of Islam just as there is in Christianity, You have different levels of commitment to each. In those ways, they are very comparible. On top of that, you still have extremist in both. To the level of extremist is where you can argue the differences divide from each other.
And if you want to bring up Africa, dont forget Kony, who is killing in the name of Chrisitanity. So I dont need to pretend its the same thing, killing in the name of god, any god, is still killing in that name. Lets not pretend Christianity's hands are free from blood.
And where is this Kony's Biblical justification of his actions and just how it is "Christian"??? After all the word means "Christ follower/imitator". Where did Jesus teach & demonstrate it? Or any of the disciples or apostles? Just read the Quran AND the Hadiths and you'll get a cystal clear picture that Muhammad was a warlord tyrant that spread Islam by the sword, just as much as a spiritual figurehead.
