Childish name calling will win it every time, little boy.

Who invaded Iraq back in 2003? What religion was he? Why did he call the War on Terror a "crusade"?

I hope that not too hard for your tiny mind.

What teachings bigot? A major differences between Christianity and Islam is the former pretends a man (Jesus) is God, the other admits Mohammad is a man, but as such he isn't beyond criticism. Mohammad simply followed the culture practicable at that time (his era). So did Europeans. you cannot say Islam today is bad for that reason.

You don't hear of thousands of Muslims flocking to marry 6 yr olds today which invalidates your claim.

United States invaded Iraq in 2003. It was approved by Congress, we are not dictorship country. "He" says he is Christian. Who cares? We did not invade Iraq over a dispute with the Islam faith. Our military has many people of all faiths, some with none. Because Bush mis-spoke and called it a crusade, do you believe that means our country is Christian and was fighting Islam in Iraq? If that was the case, why are they still Islam? Bush often mis-spoke, didn't you realize that? USA is not a Christian nation. there is no such thing. Childish name calling is all you do, read what you write. The war had NOTHING to do with religion. It was a war on Terror. It was a war on Sadaam that had gassed the Kurds.

Christians follow Jesus, Muslims follow Mo. Muslims follow the Quran: Here is how they treat women: The Qur'an:

Qur'an (4:11)-(Inheritance) "The male shall have the equal of the portion of two females" (see also verse 4:176). In Islam, sexism is mathematically established.

Qur'an (2:282)-(Court testimony) "And call to witness, from among your men, two witnesses. And if two men be not found then a man and two women." Muslim apologists offer creative explanations to explain why Allah felt that a man's testimony in court should be valued twice as highly as a woman's, but studies consistently show that women are actually less likely to tell lies than men, meaning that they would make more reliable witnesses.

Qur'an (2:228)- "and the men are a degree above them [women]"

Qur'an (5:6)- "And if ye are unclean, purify yourselves. And if ye are sick or on a journey, or one of you cometh from the closet, or ye have had contact with women, and ye find not water, then go to clean, high ground and rub your faces and your hands with some of it" Men are to rub dirt on their hands if there is no water to purify them following casual contact with a woman (such as shaking hands).

Qur'an (24:31)- Women are to lower their gaze around men, so they do not look them in the eye.(To be fair, men are told to do the same thing in the prior verse).

Qur'an (2:223)- "Your wives are as a tilth unto you; so approach your tilth when or how ye will..." A man has dominion over his wives' bodies as he does his land. This verse is overtly sexual. There is some dispute as to whether it is referring to the practice of anal intercourse, which it has been used historically to justify. If this is what Muhammad meant, however, then it would appear to contradict what he said in Muslim (8:3365).

Qur'an (4:3)-(Wife-to-husband ratio) "Marry women of your choice, Two or three or four" Inequality by numbers.

Sahih Bukhari:Volume 7, Book 62, Number 173:

Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah:

The Prophet said, "If you enter (your town) at night (after coming from a journey), do not enter upon your family till the woman whose husband was absent (from the house) shaves her pubic hair and the woman with unkempt hair, combs her hair" Allah's Apostle further said, "(O Jabir!) Seek to have offspring, seek to have offspring!"

Five practices of fitra 1. Circumcision; 2. Shaving pubic region; 3. Clipping nails 4. Cutting mustache short; 5. Removal of arm pit hair...7.72.777

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 7, Book 72, Number 777:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah's Apostle said, "Five practices are characteristics of the Fitra: circumcision, shaving the pubic region, clipping the nails and cutting the moustaches short."

One may wonder why Allah is so free to look into what a human possess between his/her two thighs. We always thought Allah has more important affairs to attend to!

In Islam, homosexuals are condemned to receive the severest form of punishment in Islam. Homosexuality is treated as a serious sexual crime like Zina and adultery are. Here are some Islamic provisions for sodomy as found in Quran, ahadith and Sha’ria.

In Qur’an, the act of sodomy is described as the preferred sexual act of the people of prophet Lot, the nephew of Abraham. The place where the people of Lot practiced this sexual deviation is not stated in the Qur’an, although from historical references we can infer the place to be either Sodom or Gomorrah (ref. 6, p.149), the two biblical cities notoriously infamous for sexual depravity. From the following verses we learn that Allah destroyed the homosexual people of these places by baked ‘brimstones.’ Amongst those destroyed was also a wife of Lot! The Qur’an does not give a clear reason for her destruction. The following Suras refer to prophet Lot: 7:80-84, 21:74-75, 26:160-165, 27:54-58, 29:28-35.

I shall quote only some short verses, namely 7:80-84

007.80 We also (sent) Lut: He said to his people: "Do ye commit lewdness such as no people in creation (ever) committed before you?
007.081 "For ye practise your lusts on men in preference to women : ye are indeed a people transgressing beyond bounds."
007.082 And his people gave no answer but this: they said, "Drive them out of your city: these are indeed men who want to be clean and pure!"
007.083 But we saved him and his family, except his wife: she was of those who legged behind.
007.084 And we rained down on them a shower (of brimstone): Then see what was the end of those who indulged in sin and crime!

That's exactly what the pagan emperor, constantine II did when he distorted Judaism adding bits and pieces from everywhere to create Roman Catholicism. He used Christianity to promote and incorporate a one world order plan into the psyche of every man who believes in God. That's why Christianity is the only religion to promote the idea a man can be God. That's all the cult of Christendom is.

People get stoned to death and even burnt alive in India where it is not their culture. Do not be fooled by intolerant people with the same mind as you carrying out what they'd do anyway in the name of religion. You think the bible tolerates or advocated the death penalty? Or are you just against how these people are killed?

By the way the bible advocates putting homosexuals to death just like the koran does, I don't have time to keep posting the evidence. You have a lot of time on your hands.

Today America murders a whole load of people for a lot more than just being gay. A whole countries citizens are being put in jeopardy for oil and ultimate power. As we speak Israeli stooges to the West are speaking nonsense about revealing the name of the messiah.

Asari Dokubo Defends Under-aged Marriage Law In Nigeria…“We Muslims Can Marry Girls Of Any Age”. A prominent Niger Delta Muslim, Alhaji Mujahid Abubakar Dokubo-Asari, has lashed out at critics of the moves by Nigeria’s Senate to approve under-age marriage.
Expressing his opinion on the issue this morning, Dokubo, who converted to Islam as an adult, insisted that it is the right of Muslims to marry or give out their daughters at any age they wish, adding that this is not the business of non-Muslims.

You have freaks with stupid beliefs they want to promote in every religion. A lot or most even of the weird cults that have sprung up all over the world like WACO Texas have come from a Christian setting. That one man believes this does not mean all Muslims believe that. You are simply out to demonise a religion which is a clear reflection of how evil you are. I condemn all religion, as a doctrine that may have started as something honest but is now used to control, breed hate and mobilise people for war.

Which religion has the most immortality striving, Islam or Christianity? Which religion has committed the most atrocities against secular society, Christianity or Islam? You just as well argue which serial killer committed more heinous crimes, Ted Bundy or John Wayne Gacy?

The significant difference between Christianity and Islam is that Islam is like a serial killer still on the loose while Christianity has been relegated and has adapted to secularism, barring the Christian fundamentalist.

It was an illegitimate and disgusting war that cost the lives of many people. The war in Iraq was a disgusting action taken by the United States, for which I am ashamed of them - my country - for taking.

Sky-God is not interested in preventing famines, plagues, wars, diseases, murders, etc.., Sky God is interested in how many passing yards Tim Tebow gets, and the Deeble seems to be interfering with Teebow's career and passing yards. Naturally as a free agent Sky-God wants Teebow to signup with the Saints, the deeble wants him to go with the Ravens.

Think what you like Christianity is still the only religion that has blatant White supremacists using it's name. all religion's good/evil is relative. Islam maybe more totalitarian, but you don't have a lot of the problems that are attached to Western countries due to Islam banning things like alcohol.

Ever noticed how the average serial killer is Christian and many always talk about hearing voices from GOD?
