"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God" - Matthew 5:9
"You have heard that it was said, 'Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth, But I tell you, Do not resist and evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also." - Matthew 5:38-39
"But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you." Matthew 5:44
"Do not judge, or you too will be judged." Matthew 7:1
"So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets." Matthew 7:12
"The second (greatest commandment) is this: Love your neighbor as yourself." Mark 12:31
"Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven." Mark, 6:37
"The commandments, 'Do not commit adultery,' 'Do not murder,' 'Do not steal,' 'Do not covet,' and whatever other commandments there may be, are summed up in this one rule: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' Love does no harm to its neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law." Romans 13:9-10
And the clincher:
"Thou shalt not murder" Exodus 20:13
I don't know how to correctly quote the koran, but I'll put up some quotes.
"To you be your Way, and to me mine."
"Allah does not forbid you respecting those who have not made war against you on account of (your) religion, and have not driven you forth from your homes, that you show them kindness and deal with them justly; surely Allah loves the doers of justice. Allah only forbids you respecting those who made war upon you on account of (your) religion, and drove you forth from your homes and backed up (others) in your expulsion, that you make friends with them, and whoever makes friends with them, these are the unjust."
Okay, so my argument for Islam was weak, but I'm not very familiar with the teachings.
Let's see, they are specifically told by their religion to kill, they do so.... Hmmm, boy that's a tough call!
Well, what is the difference between a religion that calls for death but repeatedly tells you not to kill, and a song that tells its listeners to kill? Would you hold music accountable for murder?
I must admit that I have problems with the churches, all of them, as institutions. But I don't think that other christians don't get it. There are some, in public places, that seem to be unchristian to me, but I feel that most christians are average people, just like most atheists, no better, no worse.
As for the history of the church, I agree, but you have to be able to allow an institution to change. Holding the current incarnation of the Catholic church responsible for the Spanish inqusition would make no sense. To argue against modern religion by citing past religion is foolish.
