The media I watch, on the contrary, allows me to examine the most extremist Christians: Americans. (lol)
More seriously, in the past 30-50 years, how many terrorist attacks have been claimed by Christians?
And how many by Jews?
And how many by Muslims?
I live very near Malaysia, Indonesia etc. which are majoritarily Muslim countries, and one of my best friends is a very moderate Muslim (he drinks, but doesn’t eat pork, prays)
Let’s now take a look at global facts.
How many Christian non-secular states can you name?
I can name one: El Salvador.
How many non-secular Muslim states can you name?
I can name a bunch: Malaysia, the UAE, most of the -stans, Saudi Arabia, etc.
You may be thinking: “But, in itself, just because a country is officially Muslim doesn’t make Islam worse”.
Well, there are two facets and points to this.
Secularism is generally seen as a marker of social progression, and Islamic countries do not have it while European, ex-Christian nations do.
The way the Koran is applied (Sharia Law) in Islamic countries makes extreme sexism, capital punishment, torture and bodily punishments the norm, which is extremely backward in a general sense, when we look at the US and Europe.

What do you think of all this?
