      Being an atheist, I'm not touting Christianity. Indeed, elements of Christianity have been abused in Northern Ireland and have caused harm to women and gays. As for Islam, I've read an entire English translation of the Quran (Koran). It is not much more violent than the Old Testament (a Jewish tribal story); but it's boring because it was written by just one man (Mohammed). Islam avoids the strange nonsense about the "trinity". but it has its angels and miracles too. The basic moral message is similar to "do unto others what you'd like them to do to you". The (few) violent passages actually refer to the desperate struggle against annihillation that Mohammed's early followers made against other more primitive Arabs. Mohammed's attitude toward Christians and Jews was friendly. The current violent Islamism seems to be a heresy being used to preserve the special privileges of some Imams, and a way to help males feel that they can control females. This may be a problem for many Arab males after they were humiliated ("castrated") by the Israeli Jews! I don't worry much about this Islamism. Because it's so anti-Western, it can't achieve the kind of industrial, technical and military efficiency that grows from the non-religious, scientific "West". It's a fraud perpetrated on poor people by an elite that knows its special privileges will be destroyed by modern science and democracy. Good, moderate Muslims will survive; but the extremists will vanish.
