I'm sorry, but I don't see that as "Christianity" 200+ years ago. I see that as ugly, hate-filled people that will do whatever they can to inflict pain and death on other people.<quoted text>
Yeah. It was repulsive. They must have beaten those people first, since they were clearly suffering from shock while they were lit aflame.
Anyways, that gives you a window into Christianity of 200 years ago plus in Western culture (well, maybe 400 years ago). Sadly, that is Christianity in Kenya today - and all the other places Scar just linked to you.
So, yes, the words in the Bible, when taken literally, have immoral and "evil," as you put it, results.
Just like I don't say "atheism killed" blah, blah, blah under Stalin. That was also hate-filled people that used their government and their non-religion as an excuse to 'legally' kill people.
