    The pink area is shown as Israel.
    Maybe look at where this was taken from.

    Yeah, I forgot to mention the "loose" comparison to the Old vs New Testament. A good one!

    But the difference remains that Christians fall on the "Peace Loving" side......in the vast majority of cases.....

    The Bible vs Koran comparison is really tired and weak. Its just a justification...a way to equate two distinct issues.
    Its this mentality: "well you said this" [2000 years ago...so therefore]
    Please. Its too stupid an arguement to respond to.

    Show me the last time a Pope etc has ordered a jihad. The last time a Priest has ordered killing..in the name of the church.
    The last time the Amish ordered murder on civilians.
    The last time those Episcopal nuts ordered an overthrow and murder.
    The last time those crazy Lutherns brought out the guns.
    The last time Congretionalists strapped on the bombs.

    What a load of moral justification and twisting.
    That Christians are no better...that we are just as bad....to these extreme Islamists.
    That 500 yaers of growth mean nothing.
    Please. Its so foolish an arguement[justification] it really deseves no response.

    And id relativists want to persue?
    Lets look at a few same types and what was hthe out come.
    Lets start with Koresh...the Texas nut. Did he start a war? Did he bomb an embassy somwhere? Take out the Trade Center?
    No. Nipped in the bud. Can Islam claim the same sort of restraint? No. They cant.
    Islam is medevil and hasnt adapted. Havent grown up enough to find ways to stop those that misuse the text. Thats a problem for Islam. Nobody else.

    Religion isnt the problem. Thats like blaming Hamas on Democracy.
    Misuse is the issue. Not the instrument.

    G8 statement on the situation.
    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,203881,00.html

    It does seem everyone is holding their breath, with the G8 giving Lebanon a nudge to do something. I see this statement as a push to the Lebanese govt, as in "It's time to fight for your life" instead of watching the fight in your front yard and pretending you can do nothing about it. Lebanon's response so far seems to justify the acts of Israel as Lebanon has admitted it can't control the thugs, nor seems willing to try.

    Do you one better, Lord's Resistance Army. Capture children and use them as soldiers, been doing for decades.

    The leader professes to be a Christian, and much like the Islamic militants has his own interpetation of the bible.

    Are we supposed to condemn then entire Christian religion for this?

    Also don't throw the slam on the Koran, there is no one bible either.

    Catholics have theres, the Orthodox another, and almost every other off-shot has a different spin.

    That was just one example, there have been and still are other clashes going on involving professed Christian's.

    However, the point being a small number of nuts make the rest of the religion look bad.

    You're reaching......and stretching....



    it's a bit hard to imagine *any* that make a "statement" that tops knocking down the Twin Trade Towers and killing ~3K innocents in the process.

    Try thousands of kids forced to fight for the Lord's Resistance Army for several decades and having to kill friends and family members.

    Thats not reaching at all.

    Ask 10,000 people on the street if they've ever heard of the LRA....you're reaching.
