    People of all times react to faith issues. There are however different evolutions of society. We live a secular and prosperous civilisation . It was not always like that.

    Don't need to go back to the crusades. The reformation was a bad time when European Christians were butchering other Christians. Why did the LDS folks leave the green mid west to go to Utah? Who was persecuting them? How many folks have been murdered in our country for wearing a turban recently?

    We now have our own clowns fascinated with a possible civil war or race war.

    People don't change but situations do. We could change backward also, witness sophisticated Germany adopting the Nazi regime in the last century.

    The enemy is the same as us. Just in a different time zone.

    Hmmm.. The Reformation. 1500s. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reformation

    Mormons to Utah - the exodus began in the 1840s. https://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/mormons-begin-exodus-to-utah

    I dunno. Enlighten me. How many?

    So you've got nothing comparable in the past 50 years or so...

    Well if the Muslin feel picked on, maybe they need to try, and not do things to bring negative attention to themselves.

    Oh, yeah, the Crusades. Except everyone forgets one simple fact about the Crusades...they were a COUNTERATTACK:
    "Thomas Madden, a historian at St. Louis University, stated, “I don’t think the president knows very much about the crusades. ... He seems to be casting them as an example of a distortion of Christianity and trying to compare that to what he sees as a distortion of Islam in the actions of ISIS. ... The initial goal of the Crusades was to give back lands to Christians that had been conquered, due to Muslim conquests.”

    So yeah, the Crusades.

    France is at war with Islam? Seriously? How can you be at war with a bunch of Stone Age murderers when you don’t kill them before they kill you?

    Ahhhh....... I see now. That justifies them beheading teachers in broad daylight! The AP, that bastion of freedom of the press, who continues censoring the 4th largest newspaper in America because they don’t want to hurt a political candidate.

    You tell us, it's your argument that christians are killing muslims over religion even today, do some research and report back.

    Meanwhile christians have been persecuted and murdered in mass numbers across africa and the middle east for the last decade with horrible regularity. Worse yet, the world (and Pope) are just ignoring it.

    All religions are equal, but some religions are more equal than others..................to borrow from Orwell.

    Glad the French woke up to what has been going on for a while.

    And here I thought folks like AP have been touting Europe as paragons of virtue, acceptance and multiculturalism for years now. Guess the worm turns quick, eh?

    The only case I am aware of was back during the Obummer years when that moron shot up the Sikh temple in Wisconsin, thinking they were muslims.

    I can't recall if it was determined if he was a Christian or not, a moron certainly and a racist definitely.

    But of course one case does not systemic extermination make, unlike in Africa and the Middle East (vs Christians)
