    Muslims vs. Christians: who's the bigger terrorist?

     

    Post asserts that, as expected, the critique of Major Hassan has turned into a condemnation of Islam. Truthfully & historically speaking though, Christianity & the Bible have been a source of terror for many. Whether it's the subjugation of women in the American home, the enslavement of Africans, or the destruction of Native Americans, Christianity does not have clean hands. Christianity has served as a force for good for millions of people throughout out history, but we can't neglect the evil. Islam has also made great contributions to the world, particularly in areas like math and science. The goal of this post is not to compare religious contributions. The goal is to remind us that one person's terrorist is another person's freedom fighter. Many reading this will say that the enslavers, for example, weren't true Christians but will say the 911 hijackers represented true Islam. That's hypocritical. Every religion has blood on its hands. Less blood will be shed if we stopped condemning each other's religions and embraced them instead wherever possible.
