Moreover, your claim is clearly ignorant bigotry and a lie.
You claim that "Let there be light" equates to the Big Bang. Then explain to me how "Let there be light" describes how there was no light until about 300,000 years after the Big Bang.

Same sex marriage.

Same sex marriage.

Same sex marriage in Massachusetts.

In a 50-page, 4–3 ruling on November 18, 2003, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court said it was asked to determine whether Massachusetts "may deny the protections, benefits and obligations conferred by civil marriage to two individuals of the same sex who wish to marry. We conclude that it may not. The Massachusetts Constitution affirms the dignity and equality of all individuals. It forbids the creation of second-class citizens."

Same sex marriage.

Ohfuck. What shall the Christians do now? Prey on children?

I'm just guessing.

You claimed Christianity was as violent as Islam. I asked for a present day example that equated them. You still are running like a sissy from validating your claim.
You in essence repeated that claim in your idiotic list; "Both abuse non-believers, and call out for the death of non-believers."
So now I add an additional challenge; Equate in current behavior Islam's violence toward infidels, and Christianity's toward unbelievers.
Put up or shut up.
PS The very first chapter of the Bible equates male and female as being in the image of God. Hardly inferior or 'property'. The rest of your list is similarly ignorant bigotry.
SMile.
Okay.

The rate of suicide among gays in areas where Genuine Christianity™ is strong, is markedly higher. This is likely due to the modern day abuse of gays at the hands of you bigoted hate-mongers.

There are, even now, cases where you Genuine Christians™ have bombed abortion clinics.

There's the current examples in several states, where Genuine Christian™ bigotry is continuing to get very bigoted and oppressive laws passed, banning women's right to control their own bodies, and keeping equal marriage rights from passing.

These are examples of modern day **abuse** by you Genuine Christian Bigots™.

More:

The tax base of any city in the US, is not as high as it should be, because a large part of the cityscape is taken up by the organized leech known as religion.

These leeches enjoy the **benefits** of taxes (police & fire protection, roads, electricity, etc) while bleeding the city's budgets with their free ride.

This is another example of **abuse** by you Genuine Christian Bloodsuckers™.

There are schools throughout the US, most notably in the south, where modern science is not allowed to be taught, instead bullshyt lies (religion/creationism) is forced onto the unsuspecting children by you religious morons.

This is another example of **abuse** by you Genuine Christian Ignoramuses™.

Shall I go on?

This is the **best** you can do? A flat lie?

The very first chapter of Genesis **clearly** puts the woman as inferior to the man-- the fact that the man was created first, and the fact that the woman was created **from** the man, to be his slave, his baby-factory, is quite clear in Genesis' description.

As for the rest? You just ignored them, so I'll repeat the list.

They [christianity and islam] are functionally identical.
Both practice systematic child abuse.
Both teach that woman are both property and inferior.
Both abuse non-believers, and call out for the death of non-believers.
Both abuse people who are gay, transgender or transexual.
Both abuse systematically abuse women.
Both teach that the only way to behave, is to give up being human, and become a mind-slave to an invisible, imaginary slave-master.
Both teach that being stupid and ignorant is better than being educated and smart.
Both are leeches on any culture/society that tolerates their existence.
I see little to separate the two-- both are systematic engines of human suffering and abuse.
