Because they are the same. How do you know the Muslim woman is about conquest and the Christian woman is about self-defense?

You don’t. You study there beliefs, and the message behind it. Jesus teaches to love others, even unbelievers. Mohammed teaches to kill the unbelievers. Then also look at history and how Islam was spread, compared to how Christianity was spread. Even the Crusades were just a retaliation against Muslim conquest.

1. Jesus spoke very disparagingly about nonbelievers, comparing them to dogs and pigs, and saying Christians shouldn't associate with them.

2. Christianity was spread through both violent and nonviolent means. It's a fact of history that Christians committed many horrible atrocities in many countries throughout many centuries. That is a fact. Has Islam used violence? Yes. But so has Christianity.

1. Saying not to associate with unbelievers is one thing, saying to kill them is quite another. In the references you’re speaking of, Jesus was talking to Jewish believers, not gentiles. The Jews were to be set apart, as Gods chosen people. But Jesus came to save gentiles too and he even sat and ate with them. By “associate”, he means don’t partake in their sinful lifestyle. In the same way, you might have a friend that does heroin. You might be friends and talk, even hang out together, but you’re not going to shoot heroin with them.

2. Yes true. Christianity has done some bad things. (See the inquisition. Which was the Catholic Church, as with the crusades, but that’s beside the point). But as far as the main way one is spread (by missionary work) compared to the other, (militant violence and Hijrah), there is a vast difference. Do some research on it. Case in point: Give me the name of a Christian group today that commits more, or as many, violent acts as Isis does. (And don’t say the KKK, they are as about as ignorant of Christianity as you can get.)

1. So you acknowledge that Jews (including Jesus) looked down on gentiles because they weren't part of "God's chosen people". Also, you said Jesus taught Christians to love nonbelievers. Is comparing people to pigs and dogs something that you do to people you love?

2. The Catholic Church is Christian, so you can't use a No True Scotsman fallacy here. If Islam is mainly spread through militant violence, then why don't all Muslims in America run around all the time committing acts of violence? The number of Muslims who commit violent acts is very very small compared to the number of Muslims that live here. Again, Christianity has a long history of spreading through violent means, as well as nonviolent.

"Give me the name of a Christian group today that commits more, or as many, violent acts as Isis does"

That's faulty reasoning. A Christian group doesn't have to commit as many violent acts as ISIS to qualify as a violent group. One violent act is too many. But since you asked, there is a Christian terrorist group (in the US) called the Army of God. Look them up. They both support and engage in terrorist acts against abortion providers including death threats, bombings and murder. And they are a Christian group.

And for the record, yes, the KKK is a Christian group, just like ISIS is a Muslim group. Their membership is only open to white Protestants. No Catholic or non-Christian can join the Klan. Tell me again how a group only open to white Protestants isn't a Christian group?

Well, anyone can call themselves a Christian. But they can be judged by their fruit. Is their fruit acts of violence? Then no, they are not. And yes, most Muslims are peaceful people. Just as most Christians are. We could keep going on between the differences between the two. There’s bad people in every religion. But something tells me that as a woman you’d be a lot more comfortable in a Christian society than an Islamic one.

As for Jesus’ sayings, he was just using pigs and dogs as an analogy in the message he was trying to confess. He was not literally calling them pigs and dogs. He even chased people out of the temple courtyard with a whip for ripping people off. So, in context, if you yell at you kids or discipline them for something you know they shouldnt be doing, does that mean you don’t love them?

I'm a man, not a woman. My username comes from a female cartoon character, but I'm a guy.

Also, if I loved my kids, I wouldn't compare them to pigs and dogs.

Sorry, man. Like I said though, it was an analogy. He loves you enough to die an excruciating death for you. If you care to believe that. We all have the freedom to choose to believe whatever we want. But we only got one shot at it...

When someone says they are a gun owner who's a Christian, it doesn't add up for me. Either God protects you, or you protect yourself.

That’s a very good point. I’ve heard many accounts of God causing guns to jam and bullets to be deflected. But I’ve also heard accounts of missionaries dying horrible deaths. I believe that we should have faith like he could save us like that if he so chooses, but we also shouldn’t be ignorant of the world we live in. It’s the reason we have guns and a military to protect us and our country. It’s also the same argument of having doctors and hospitals.- If we believe God will heal us, why do we need them?

I also believe not everyone is called to carry a gun. Jesus said to his disciples at one point, if you don’t have a sword, sell what you have and buy one. Yet he also said that he who lives by the sword dies by the sword. So some are called to carry, and some aren’t. We all have a purpose in this life, our job is to find out what that is and live in it. I believe God will show you if you seek him. : )
