"No Christian could hold such beliefs and remain a Christian."
This was an essential part of Christianity for many centuries - not just Christian versus non Christian, but Christians who kicked with the wrong foot.
Not so long ago a leading churchman being questioned on the Inquisition not only justified the deaths that had occurred over the centuries of its existence, but he said that, should it be necessary, he could see no reason why it should not happen again.
The killing of non-believers is an essential part of many religions including Christianity.
The only thing that has changed if the opportunity to carry out such a doctrine.
Prior to the start of World War One, 'Gallant little (Christian) Belgium didn't blink an eye when its government and commerce slaughtered 10 million 'heathen blacks' (Congolese) in pursuit of rubber.
