    The difference between Islam and Christianity.

    I'm trying real hard to see a difference. So far, it seems as if the difference is the ability to carryout occult based Scripture laws. Is the only thing protecting us from the harshness of religion our secular laws?

    For every story like:

    Group denies Afghan Taliban claims over dead workers - World news - South and Central Asia - Afghanistan - msnbc.com

    Afghan medical mission ends in death for 6 Americans
    On Saturday, the Taliban claimed responsibility for the killing, saying the medical workers had been carrying bibles in Dari — one of Afghanistan's two main languages — and were killed because they were proselytizing.

    this happened in the Islamic world, is situations like this in the Christian world:

    Uganda's Anti-Gay Bill: Inspired by the U.S.

    Uganda's Anti-Gay Bill: U.S., Western Donors Keep Quiet - TIME

    the doctor, who asked that his name not be published, could be prosecuted for "aiding and abetting homosexuality." In one version of the bill, his sexually active HIV-positive patients could be found guilty of practicing acts of "aggravated homosexuality," a capital crime (capital crime means "mandatory death sentence)

    Scott Lively, a California conservative preacher who has written a book, The Pink Swastika, about what he calls the links between Nazism and a gay agenda for world domination

    (if a news reporter failed to provide authorities with the doctor's statement, he/she could receive a mandatory, 5 years prison sentence)

    This is what they want to do in Uganda:

    This is NOT about "gay". It's about religion. How could both religions, supposedly of "love", promote such "fear" and "hatred"?

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VnQvRzPY3r4&feature]YouTube - ‪Teaser Uganda : Killing in the name.. .mov‬‎[/ame]

    Many of the right on this board will say, "Hey, it's just the gays, who cares? They should be killed. They are an abomination and by God's laws should die, painfully".

    Whoever sacrifices to any god, except the Lord alone, shall be doomed. (Exodus 22:19 NAB)

    If your own full brother, or your son or daughter, or your beloved wife, or you intimate friend, entices you secretly to serve other gods, whom you and your fathers have not known, gods of any other nations, near at hand or far away, from one end of the earth to the other: do not yield to him or listen to him, nor look with pity upon him, to spare or shield him, but kill him. Your hand shall be the first raised to slay him; the rest of the people shall join in with you. You shall stone him to death, because he sought to lead you astray from the Lord, your God (Deuteronomy 13:7-12 NAB)

    -----------------

    As I pointed out, we are protected from the threats of persecution from the religious by our secular laws. But if given the chance, would the religious here do the same as the Muslims because it would be "in the name of God"? Why or why not? Wouldn't they be "commanded"?

    The difference between islam and christianity is that one uses toilet paper, and the other doesn't. Everything else is the same.

    Maybe you don't know the difference in the two religions just like you don't know your king sized assehole from the aforementioned hole in the ground because you are not a woman.. anybody who can't see that difference is just plain stupid.

    How about some differences.

    One difference is christians aren't putting out fatwas calling for assassination. One difference is I don't see any christians stoning people to death for fucking. One difference is the christian world educates its woman. One difference is christian officials aren't condoning terrorists and terrorists acts. One difference is that christians aren't telling its members that if they kill they will be rewarded in heaven.

    How is that for a start?

    Quite simply, those who kill in the name of Jesus are going against his teachings. Those who kill in the name of Mohammad are following his teachings. Clear enough for you?
