Skip to comments.Are Christianity and Islam equally violent? Leftists Seem to Think so.

This one is making the rounds, both on ABC's The View and by a religious leftist who says we need to wrestle with violence in the Scriptures.
The hostesses of The View says Hitler was a Christian, so who are Christians today to moralize about ISIS?
To me, it doesn't matter whether, hypothetically, Hitler or Timothy McVeigh yelled "I kill in the name of Christ!" (Neither one claimed Christianity; both rejected it.) We would judge them by their fruit and their conformity to the New Testament.
Which bring us to the religious leftist.
He is right that Christians need to wrestle with Old Testament violence, though he correctly says the New Testament has "turned a page." But then he claims that New Testament rhetoric has it that Jesus preached violence against Jews. Really? Where is the verse?
Further, where is the verse that commands the church as a church to pick up swords and threaten to kill people if they don't convert?
Where is the verse that says that says Christians use violence to spread the gospel?

RE: Where is the verse that says that says Christians use violence to spread the gospel?
Leftists will cite the slaughter of the Canaanites and the extermination of the Amalekites by those who are the “People of God” as record in the Christian and Jewish Bible.
Christians are taught to turn the other cheek...muslims are taught to take the cheek...along with the rest of the head.
Canaanites and Amelekites alive today might have cause for concern, I suppose. Any out there?
Invite these liberals to go to 4-5 hardcore Christian churches and have them badmouth God. Then, have them go to 4-5 hardcore mosques and have them badmouth Muhammad. Have them see what reactions they get
But can these leftists cite any case of Christian violence aimed at spreading Christianity today?
Can leftists cite any country in the world which is a Christian theocracy, similar to the many Muslim theocracies in the middle east??
Why even waste time to comment on the inanities of Leftist bilge?
Oh yeah... my little Aunt Edna... carrying her greenbean casserole across the church parking lot to her lady’s knitting brunch is a real threat. Call in the SWAT teams!
Because unfortunately the leftist media, including inane shows such as The View, influence and inform millions of people and “low information” types. It’s good to be aware of the tripe they spew out, and be ready to counter what they are saying.
I can just imagine some testy discussions at Thanksgiving dinner this year, in families in which some are more liberal and parrot the Obama party line on issues...............
Its impossible to argue with today’s leftist.
They are utterly impervious to facts and reason - their opinion leader, be it Obama, Jon Stewart, etc. tells them what to think and say and they simply regurgitate it.
They say the wackiest things with complete confidence, sometimes all you can do is stare slack jawed.
Right... and there’s a Mosque for EVERY Christrian church on EVERY street corner in the US, where anyone can go and be accepted and where anyone can go for help, asylum, etc. if he/she needs it..and there are Muslim ‘charities’ worldwide fot the victims of famine, disease, warfare, etc. (sarc)
The origins of Islam and Christianity are completely different.
Don’t you know that any God-fearing individual who speaks the truth is terrorizing the Left?
Well, in some circles, greenbean casserole is consider biological warfare. /s
They view all religions not of their own ideology as equally evil.
I’ve seen people holding signs that ask ‘Who would Jesus bomb?’ yet I never have seen a sign which asked ‘Who would Muhammad bomb?’
The only question you need to ask these people is, “can tell me where you disagree with what Christ said and did?”.
Then ask the same of Mohammed. Often, they can’t answer because they don’t know. If they do, they’ll be dishonest and try to assert some positive thing Mohammed said (taken out of context) but they’ll bend over backwards to avoid the reality of who the man was.
So the bottom line is, they don’t want to be honest with themselves. It is because they want to live in sin and, subconsciously, deliberately block their thought process, otherwise they wouldn’t be able to continue their lifestyle without guilt.
