<quoted text>No, Christianity isn't more violent than Islam. Christianity was abused by the knowledgeable. Religion was used to mask the ambitions of the powerful. I those days of Christian conquest and violence the only ones who could read were the clergy and royalty. The people were manipulated using their religious beliefs. Among the average people of that time those beliefs were absolute. Marx was right (to a degree) when he wrote that "religion is the opiate of the masses". He saw that the uneducated, illiterate believers could be controlled using religion. Every religion in history has been used by the powerful in this manner at one time or another. Islam has and is being abused in the same way. Islam lends itself to this use well because it preaches destruction of the "nonbeliever" or "infidel". Those who have power and control of knowledge are where the violence comes from. As Lord Acton said "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men." Lord Acton was an historian who saw the pattern I speak of in the history of civilization. Religious beliefs based purely on faith without knowledge and objective education are easily manipulated.

No, the medieval theory proclaimed that kings ruled by "divine right". The argument went that what happens is the will of God, therefore it is God's will that the king is king.
Of course, if the king is overthrown that is also God's will.
Gnosticism was suppressed as heresy, I don't know about any slaughter.
As far as Christianity being "a far more cruel religion than islam" you've got to be joking.
Islam is the opposite of Christianity in almost every way. Islam prescribes terror, cruelty, rape, and plunder as the example of the false prophet Mo.
Islam is a religion of destruction and slavery.

and I am not joking. Christianity is a far more cruel religion than islam.

The Spanish Inquisition was the medieval autocrat's last attempt to keep power in countries where the reformation and enlightening had not succeeded in separating church and state.
It has nothing to do with the Christian religion.
If the Spanish monarchs had been Hindus they would gave been burning enemies of the state at the stake in the name of Shiva.
You need to wise up about Islam.

No, you're wrong. We are just more familiar with the history of Christianity. Heinous and unthinkable acts have been committed in the names of all religions at some point. It simply depends on who is corrupting and using the religion to hold control. Some religions last longer than others and may be abused for more skulduggery than others in that respect but the violent potential is pretty much equal across the board. The less objective education there is among the people, the higher the potential for violence at the direction of the knowledgeable.

The Christian God killed approximately 24 million people himself.

First of all, the Christian God is not the same as the moon god Allah.
Secondly, I thought we already established that the Old Testament is NOT HISTORICAL.
It's a bronze age interpretation of events. It is allegory and it is myth. Back then if a volcano erupted and wiped out a town it was somehow the wrath of God.

I am familiar with Christianity.
I am a Christian and live in a Christian country and enjoy Christian civilisation.
It is not us who bail from our own countries and try to live as parasites off other civilisations like the muz do.
It is not us inflicting terror attacks on the world like the muz.
Although we Christians could destroy the muz quite easily we refrain from their annihilation despite their abuses.
No civilisation is as tolerant and forgiving as ours and those virtues are Christian.

Okay, have it your way. Jehovah is a serial killer. Better be careful what you say.....He's listening! He must have abused animals as a young God.

I'm going to stick with my theory (with which the majority of learned people agree) that man tends to corrupt ALL religions to control and hold power.

Fist of all, Allah and the Christian God are the same God. Muslims and Christians both trace their roots back to Abraham. Abraham only had 1 God.
Secondly, you haven't established that he Old Testament is not historical. You have asserted such without providing compelling evidence. If you are saying that "God lied" or "the Bible isn't the word of God" then you have a point...but it refutes anything else you say regarding the validity of the Christian religion.

I didn't say anything. I am merely repeating what God said. You may stick to your word but that I thought God's word supercedes your word. By your own admission you are taking the word of people over the word of God. It is really strange for someone who believes in God to take that stance.

Where did that come from? I said no such thing. I said man corrupts the word of God to suit his purposes.....all the time.....right here......right now.

So, if the God of Abraham is the one true God and both Islam and Christendom worship Him, how is one more violent than the other?

I think concluding that Islam and Christianity are equally violent is a pretty valid conclusion.

OK but Christians/Jews have tended to be more violent than Islamists. Christians are some deep and demented individuals.

No, not Christians....just the ones who corrupt the religion for personal gain. Every religion has 'em.

Christians seem to be the worst. They either fabricated the old testament or their version of God is more of a prick than anybody else's. It is difficult to remain kind and compassionate when one's "Leader" has killed almost as many or more than Stalin and/or Hitler.

i'm getting a chubby just thinking about his owner being sentenced to animal cruelty-

what do you think the animals will do to him? or does the judge get to instruct them like he does the jury?
