i'm having a discussion in another forum about christianity versus islam.

i stated that some christian groups advocate violence against others here in america, (atheists, gays, etc etc) and that they are no better than radical muslims.

if anyone has some christian web sites that do preach and advocate violence could you post it here?

thanks.

These aren't all just about Christians, mga, but maybe you can find enough information to help you a little bit.

What about Rev. Phelps and his protests at funerals of dead soldiers?

Then consider the years of religious turmoil in Northern Ireland.

It never ceases... :evil:

Perhaps not totally on topic... But it's background. It's one of my favorite periods of history to study. In a way we're still paying for it.

The Thirty Years War

Quote:
The Thirty Years War was also, at least in part, a religious war among Catholics, Lutherans and Calvinists. Ferdinand II and, to a lesser degree, his primary ally Maximillian I represented the re-Catholicizing zeal of the Jesuit Counter-reformation, while Frederick V of the Palatinate represented the equally militant forces of Calvinism.


Don't forget the Crusades. You can't get any more violent than that.

The genocide of native peoples was in great part driven by religious bigotry.

You can read up on the United States' very own Religious War... This was the English Civil War as fought in the Colonies...The Plague of the 1620's, The "War Effort" (1620's), and Crypto-Catholics. You can also find information on this in Kevin Phillips' "The Cousin's Wars"
