It's only in the last few centuries that Christian attitudes have been somewhat civilized and humane. Before that Christianity was just as violent and bloodthirsty as Islam. What changed? It was the rise of humanism, skepticism, atheism, deism and science in the West that tamed the Christians and made them behave for the first time in history. These are the things that have made Christianity a moribund and powerless religion and these are only things that can tame Islam. And Democracy. Let's not forget that. The U.S. was NOT in any way founded on Judeo-Christian principles - whatever they are. Our nation was founded on Democratic principles borrowed from the Greek and Roman cultures.
A Christian martyr says, "I will die for my beliefs." A muslim martyr says, "YOU will die for my beliefs.”
Christianity is a faith in which God sent his Son to die for you. Islam is a religion in which God requires you to send your son to die for him.
If a muslim burns your Bible, you will pray for him. If you burn a muslim's Bible (Koran) he will try to torture you and kill you.
If Christian parents have a son or daughter that renounces Christianity and becomes a muslim, the Christian parents will pray for them and still love them. If muslim parents have a son or daughter that renounces Islam and becomes a Christian, the muslim parents will do the muslim community an "honor" and kill them. If the parents choose not to do that, the muslim community will do it for them.
