Christianity is just as bad

counter arguments

When you criticize Islamic supremacism to a non-Muslim, they are likely to say “Christians have done 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.”

A good all-purpose response to any objection you get is to ask them how they learned about Islam as that?question is likely to reveal to both of you how little the other knows about Islam which is a good place to start.

For these particular objections however?here some good responses:

What About The Crusades?

Well, what about them? Violence committed in the name of other religions is logically unconnected to the question of whether Islam is violent.

By mentioning the Crusades, the person is trying to draw attention away from Islamic violence and paint religions in general as morally equivalent.

Tell them that

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 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 possible 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.
