Ask just about any historian they will contend that Christianity has been used to justify more bloodshed and oppression than all other religions combined, if you include the torture and mayhem that went on during the early periods, and from the Inquisition to the Witch Trials all the way into the slavery and Jim Crow eras.

Thats not a judgement or an opinion, its accepted fact.

So to single out Islam and give Christianity a free pass is  extremely ethnocentric– the point is, you can’t single out Islam- yes it has been used horribly to justify atrocity, slaughter etc but so has Christianity and so many other religions.
