Although I've never been there, from what I hear I'd suggest you should go to Northern Ireland for a while. Whichever side you're observing, they're both Christian.

But, on a side note, Islam was born a religion of conquest unlike the spread of Christianity in the Roman Empire. The Crusades can hardly be called Christian. However, Mohammed himself conqured to spread his new religion. To say it was born peacefully is a direct contradiction to what history tells us.
Why can't the Crusades be called Christian? I'd say they were very Christian, as the religious leaders called for the Crusades to conquer Jerusalem. Maybe the actions of the Crusaders weren't very Christian, but they did it because of their religion.

C ya!

Marty

The crusades were not born out of Christian theology, they were not a teaching of the religion. Power and politics were the drivers of the crusades.
