Let's face it, religious fundamentalism has taken a beating lately. In many ways the beating may be deserved. The Jihad being waged against decent, freedom loving people by religious fanatics may cause the non-religious to step up their attacks on other religions such as Christianity.
How does Christianity compare with other religions in the news today? Does it have a better track record or has it also had a history of oppression and violence? If you came up through our school systems, watch TV and movies and listen to the various voices of the media you likely think it has a rather sordid history.
I believe this view is actually a complete lie and distortion and invite you to examine the truth of the matter in this great little article.
