THIS IS ANOTHER installment in our series, “Answers to Objections.” When you criticize Islamic supremacism, a very common response you’ll get is something like this: “Christians do the same thing. Look at the Inquisition. Look at the Crusades. More people have been killed in the name of Christianity than all other religions combined.”
You can find an answer to the Crusades part here: What About The Crusades?
A simple way to answer the objection is: “Today, more people are killed in the name of Islam every year than were killed in the entire 350 years of the Spanish Inquisition.” Direct your listener to see how many people are being killed daily in the name of Islam at TheReligionOfPeace.com. Memorize that URL so you can recommend it. Write it down for them. It is a site that documents every verifiable act of jihad in the world where at least one person is killed.
Another answer is: “In the 1400-year history of Islam, 270 million people have been killed in the name of Islam. No other religion even comes close. Communism doesn’t even come close. Naziism doesn’t either. The reason we don’t know this is that Islamic supremacists have infiltrated the textbook publishing business in America and have massively edited the history of Islam. They also heavily influence Western media.”
