51. You mix so many different issues it's hard to see your point

 

I do not hold Christianity in high regard either.
But the wars waged in the name of Christianity were mostly between brands of Christianity: Catholics vs Protestants, mainly. There were not wars waged to propagate Christianity. The Crusades were belated defensive wars in reaction to the Muslim/Arab onslaught. And colonialism was mostly about resources, Christian ministers just following on the coattails of invading forces.

But back to the point: in today's world, the main danger to world peace is Islam*, far ahead of anything else. In the not too distant future, it could become Chinese assertiveness if China doesn't become a democracy.

(*even if GW did manage to make the US the main offender vs world peace for a few years)
