Our freedom of speech is limited in cases when the speech directly harms others (e.g. slander). If practicing Islam faithfully requires violence against infidels, then should our right to practice religion be limited to exclude violent religions?

Really?? Really??? Wow. Muhammad was a woman-beating, lying, murderous child-rapist. Most Christians ask the question "What would Jesus do" as a guiding principle. If one were to live like Muhammad, they'd go to straight to hell in most honest people's most liberal belief systems.

Violent actions should not be permitted, no matter what the religion.

Nice try, but Numbers is part of The Old Testament before Jesus' time. I'm comparing the teachings of Jesus and his actions to those of Muhammad. The Old Testament is included in the Bible as a way to tell the story of the history of The Jews prior to the arrival of Jesus. Before Jesus, God was much more unforgiving and people had to make many sacrifices. The arrival of Jesus changed all that.

Have fun reading through this list!! While you're at check out some of the horrifying stats about terrorism carried out by "The Religion of Peace". Seriously, everyone should be reading this. I seriously doubted Muhammad could be this bad at first and still be the prophet of one of the world's major religions. Man was I wrong!

You do realize that Christians follow the New Testament right? The Old Testament was an account of god BEFORE Jesus.

Muhammad took a nine year old wife. I know women married in their teens back in the day, but this should qualify as child rape even by 7th century standards.

If one were to study Jesus' teachings across all of the New Testament, one can overwhelming conclude Jesus advocated kindness, forgiveness and love. He would try and teach about god to all that listened, and he didn't advocate lying to, stealing from and murdering non believers. Christianity requires free will - you have to accept Christ on your own. Not because you're under the threat of beheading.

Islam is the same way if you actually read all of it instead of hearing one mistranslated quote and stereotyping an entire culture

Islam can't be practiced peacefully so long as there are infidels. Any other religious practice is NOT Islam. Islam needs a reformation to remove the whole part about killing non-believers. If Islam were the way and its followers believed it to be the truth, it should sell itself. It shouldn't require oppression and violence.

Can you explain to me why NO Imams or Clerics have come out publicly to denounce all attacks in the name of their peaceful religion? Or why not ONE Ambassador in the U.S. of any Muslim country has spoken out? Or why not ONE Muslim leader that was in Saudi Arabia over the weekend hasn't spoken out?

Muhammad was not a dictator. His army responded to attacks against them by neighboring armies, it was not in the search for imperial conquest. It was a populist movement of liberation from economic and political elites, and instituted the first major welfare state in the world.

The Sunni-Shi'ite divide is not at all Muhammad's fault. It exists because of disagreement among the Muslim community as to how Muhammad's successor should be.

Publicly on television..not in the confines of a Mosque..I don't go to a mosque because I'm a non-believer so how would I know what they say? You didn't answer my question why no one prominent from the faith has spoken out publicly for the world to hear..

So Roman genocide isnt "violent times?" Christianity rose up as a nonviolent religion and became violent during times of great power. Islam was violent from the start and only becomes peaceful once successful secular countries allow it, like Syria 8 years ago.

Also, that vietnam war thing made no sense. A better comparison is Nazi Germany reclaiming the fatherland. Except war to reclaim land just for state reasons has no justification, while the Crusades were to end the dark ages and reclaim lands invaded by muslims.

The Crusades were reclaiming land already belonging to them. Islam starts violence without ever having anything stolen from them. War is not violence. Rebellion is violence. Jesus was against rebellion.

War is not violence, okay. So Islam isn't violent because it defends itself in battle.

The actions of Muslims murdering people proves Islam is not peaceful.

The Koran can be interpreted many ways. The people that murder there interpret it as violent. It is what it is.

Islam isnt violent if its defending itself, thats pretty obvious.
All know is that Jesus died and everywhere was either Christian or Jewish and then the Turks started invading Byzantium and Europe. Christians and Jews had owned the lands but then they were fought and kicked out. The Arabic golden age was the time right after capturing libraries across the middle east.
Also, the American Revolution was complicated because there was essentially no leader to rebel against other than a country 6 months away. But yes, it was a rebellion.

I think the issue youre not understanding here is that just because there isn't a formal division between "old testament" and "new testament" doesnt mean such a division doesnt exist. Its the same with judaism, you don't see jews giving animal sacrifice and stoning women of adultery.

"The Inquisition was originally intended primarily to ensure the orthodoxy of those who converted from Judaism and Islam. The regulation of the faith of the newly converted was intensified after the royal decrees issued in 1492 and 1502 ordering Jews and Muslims to convert or leave Spain."

Notice the term royal? Christianity was essentially against Royalty throughout history, and then suddenly Royals started acknowledging Christianity. Not exactly Christianity doing this, its higher powers. If Trump said we all have to become Christians, is that a huge Christian movement or just state policy?
