Whereas Christianity had sixteen- and we did it bigger and badder. And then we birthed Nazism and Communism.Killing innocent people in the name of the prophet was going on for 1000 years before America was even a country
1400 years if you call Jesus a prophet.
The difference being, of course, that Jesus didn't rape a nine year old girl, put huge areas to the sword, take slaves and then exhort his followers to do so after his death. Christianity was later co-opted into something else. Likewise, most sane people in the West actively denounce Hitler and Stalin. How many in the Muslim world denounce Mahommed? Nice false equivalencies on your part though.
