43. I've never seen one Christian DUer deny the bloody history of Christianity
But what vindictive posters don't seem to realize is that there are two factions of Christianity.

There is the Christianity of tyrants like Pope Innocent III, and there is the Christianity of Saint Francis of Assisi.

There is the Christianity of conquerors like Christopher Columbus, and there is the Christianity of Bartholomew de Las Casas.

There is the Christianity of bigots like John Calhoun, and there is the Christianity of William Lloyd Garrison.

There is the Christianity of warmongers like George W. Bush, and there is the Christianity of Archbishop Desmund Tutu.


Distinctions should be made.
