hmmm... Which group has "death to the infidels!" as a saying?
18 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Friday 10/31/03 - 6:20:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
Mohammed was a bit of a bully... leave those infidels alone!
18 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Friday 10/31/03 - 6:20:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
that is a tough one...

probably Christianity though...

While obeying the Koran and teachings of Islam, a whole ton have died.

While obeying the Bible and the teachings of Christianity, very few have died.

Of course, I'm sure you were referring to some heinous misinterpretation of both religions.

18 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Friday 10/31/03 - 7:21:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
Neither have caused any deaths.

As a group...probably Christians. Crusades, Inquisition, etc.

both religions HAVE caused many deaths. it would be tough to call. for those of you that think otherwise, pick up a history book. just because christianity is a peaceful religion now, it has not always been.
18 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 12/2/03 - 6:55:34 AM EST (GMT-5)
As far as I know the Koran does not tell ppl to go around killing. its how it is interpereted
18 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 12/2/03 - 7:08:13 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'd say Christianity. But I have nothing concrete to back that up.
18 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 12/2/03 - 7:14:53 AM EST (GMT-5)
Sure you do EmanJ, what about the crusades?
18 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 12/2/03 - 7:17:55 AM EST (GMT-5)
im with jdpd, the Qur'aan does not tell people to kill, and guardcore, that was a stupid comment to make because i am sure had u had any knowledge about Mohammed, you would not call him a bully....
18 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 12/2/03 - 8:00:54 AM EST (GMT-5)
Both pretty much equal I'd imagine.
18 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 12/19/03 - 4:36:40 AM EST (GMT-5)
christianity,
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 1/3/04 - 1:06:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd think Islam, but maybe Chrisitanity. I really don't have proof.
18 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 1/25/04 - 1:54:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
Islam has been getting more attention lately, but if you look at history, Christianity has a violent past.
18 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 1/25/04 - 2:07:14 PM EST (GMT-5)
My first instinct is to say christianity, but that might just be beacause I'm less aware of anything that might have been done in the name of islam many years ago, while I'm more aware of the atrocities committed, ostensibly, in the name of my own, former, religion.

Christianity has (BY FAR!) the biggest body count. More than any country, group, cult, etc.
Missionaries have brought diseases with them everywhere, and killed any of the people that survived that refused to follow their 'teachings', there were the inquisitions, the crusades, Columbus, the pilgrims on the mayflower, and we mustn't forget our most recent atrocity, George W. Bush.
18 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 2/4/04 - 9:18:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
I haven't been counting....
18 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 2/4/04 - 9:24:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
I am a Christian and I know for a fact that Christians have killed in the name of Jesus. I know that there were the crusades. The dark ages. There has been a lot of deaths. There has been a lot of holy wars for muslim but the only major attack that Muslims have had done is 9/11. Yes it was a sad day but Christians have killed a lot more people than Muslims have ever. Christians have been known to be more violent and Muslims just want to be left alone.

1. the crusades
2. the inquisition
3. the killing of protestants lutherens catholics and other religous killings made during the middle ages
4. the killing of pagans by roman christain invaders in britain
5. and numerous others

i would say it was christains who have killed the mostpeople through out the centuries

18 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 2/14/04 - 3:18:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
Everyone is aware who Christians were fighting and why during the crusades right? The blame of the crusades can't be entirely placed on Christianity.
18 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 2/14/04 - 3:23:45 PM EST (GMT-5)
These religons have been around for a lonnng time. theres no way fo measuring
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 3/28/04 - 11:43:00 AM EST (GMT-5)
Don't forget the missions!
They also killed and maimed non-believers (infidels) all over world and have done it for centuries.
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 3/28/04 - 12:02:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
neither religion preaches murder.
it's unfortunate that followers of both religions have been guilty of it. the fault lies directly with them.
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 3/28/04 - 12:35:00 PM EST (GMT-5)
Both are getting right up there.
