Christianity vs. Islam in Africa.
A 19th Century Debate

Christianity had failed, announced Reverend Isaac Taylor, Canon of York, to a British audience in 1897. It had failed to civilize the savage, barbarous Africans. Islam, he continued, had been more successful than Christianity in ridding that continent of its evils -- evils like cannibalism, devil worship, and human sacrifice.

Not only had Christianity failed to civilize the savage, he said, but it had extended European trade, which also extended "drunkenness and vice and the degradation of the [African] people" (Prasch 51).

His Christian audience, offended and upset, responded audibly to his statements. The London Times, reporting Taylor's speech, included their reactions to his statements in parentheses:(sensation),( "Oh, oh!") and ("Oh.")

The Times also included the audience's reaction to the speakers who followed Canon Taylor and denounced his ideas:(cheers).

But Canon Taylor comments continued, despite his audience's unfavorable reaction.

"Islam is an imperfect Christianity," he stated, "a half-Christian faith."

The Christian god is fake.

God in Christianity is not the same of the Jewish Old Testament. We know that "eye for eye, and tooth for tooth" is incompatible to the "turn the other cheek" from Christian doctrine.

During Raman times, many Jews assimilated part of the Hellenistic culture of the empire which they were under the domain. They naturally had to integrate some cultural Hellenist aspects.
Thus, the true God of Abraham, stern, demanding, severe, vigilant became more like a meek, "who loves and forgives everyone," affectionate and sweet character.

We know that the world is not like that. We are required and charged all the time. If God was this "mother", humanity would not suffer so much. Thus, Christianity is the biggest lie of humanity and only very naive and passive populations can conceive that there's a lovely God upward allowing all these grievances against humankind.

That's why African rejected Christianity and widely accepted that Abrahamic version of God restored by Islamic theology.

Boy what are you babbling about? There are easily as many Christians in Africa as there are Muslims, if not more.

Didn't your mother ever smack you for saying silly things?

Jesus is called Isä in Islam. He's more next to me than to you. The Gospel of Barnabas corroborates with the Islamic interpretation of Jesus. Christianity was just a Roman tool of acculturation and domination against gullible heathens like your slave ancestors.

Even nowadays Vatican earns billions of dollars from their culturally subdued third-worlders.
