Troll, you said, "... that's the first time I've ever heard the statement that christianity has also been spread by the sword."

I guess you never heard of the first recorded case of genocide. That was the Holy Roman Catholic Church (the Vatican) imposing their form of Christianity on the Cathars of Southern France.

There are numerous incidents of atrocities committed in the name of Christ. It may not have been a sword but Christianity was definitely 'shoved down the throats' of many, many people, including most of Europe, Africa and the Americas. Ever heard of the Christian Brothers? Ever heard of so-called missionaries that were involved in the slave trade?

Christian Fundamentalists are no better than Islamic Fundametalists.
