            Arguably because the facts don't support your argument. How many were murdered over money? Look its clear...you hate Christianity. Atheists and Muslims and every other religion just get along so great right?

            Let's be absolutely clear: I'm not keen on any religion, not just Christianity.

          Ok that's fair. But is it also fair to point out that I don't think I have once seen any other religion so harped against as Christianity on this board when its coming from Atheists? I personally am Agnostic. But those against religion on this board are always using the word religion or Christianity in their examples...and often Muslims and other religions are given a pass even if its only by omission?

        Haven't we had this conversation before? Can you explain to me why you don't understand that people from countries that are overwhelming white and Christian have a bone to pick with people who are white and Christian? They say "write what you know," and maybe that also means "complain about what you know."



    Quote:
    Exactly. I know most people here know Christianity more than they know Islam. And a few on the board, in the past, typically posted sterotypes about Islam more than reality.


And stereotypes against "Christians" get a pass.
And no I think its bad to make all these comments because we are more familiar with "Christianity"...because it shows an ignorance towards what else is out there. It's ok to start out that way...but there have been more than enough discussions like this on the board so this needn't be the case.


    Quote:
    It makes public debates odd. We rarely talk about anything in neutral terms. And it is impossible to do so. In the US alone public debates are often if it involves Muslims it is bad and attack. This administration is huge on that. Does not matter if it is true or not. And that is not right or fair.


If one just said "religion" in the discussions this would not be an issue.


    Quote:
    If the tables were flipped it would be just as unfair and wrong.


We know this to be the case in certain parts of the world...and yet its not brought up nearly as much. You like to compare magnitudes of the wrongs done between Trump and Hillary for example. Not saying you are wrong to...but you wont apply that to the magnitudes of what wrongs Christianity is performing today vs. Muslim parts of the world?

And yes I know...most Muslims are not these violent crazy terrible people...but notice I use "most" and the most many posters will say is give "some" which is less than "most" when letting some Christians "off-the hook".

The flavour of the words used are powerful messages.
