During the Crusades, more than 6 million were killed at the hands of both Christians and Muslims.

2/3rds of the Christian population of Europe was slaughtered by Christians during Europe's Reformation and Counter Reformation Era.

The massacres of the Incan and Mayan peoples by Christian Spaniards in the hundreds of thousands.

Christian Serbs murdered over 300,000 Muslims and raped over 100,000 Muslim women between 1992 and 1995.

In the 20th century alone, Western & Christian powers have been responsible for at least twenty times more deaths than have Muslim powers.
you left out alot of the stuff the Muslims were doing.

and okay yes those happened but those are things people have done in the "name of religion" not what the religious text actually says which is what darken hellspawn referring to. if you've have read the bible because if you had none of those things are considered acceptable. your also only proving that people themselves are violent which they are.

people have been using religion as a tool to promote violence for probably just about as long as its been around. it doesn't mean that the religion itself supports what they did. see religion can be used as a great tool for uniting the people. you can then manipulate it any way you want. (you can do that for anything.)

id comment on the Muslim/Quran but I've never "really" read any of it. except a few pages here and there. I wouldn't call that objective nor the commentary which was even worse.
