What a miserable little person you are Allentown. Now I've given you the opportunity to come back at me spewing the kind of hatred and ignorance I see in some of your posts so I can show you how much I don't care about your opinion. Take your best shot little man.

“Game on !”

Religion is not the perpetrator of violence. People are. People who are subject to human weaknesses and frailty. Those who perpetrate crime and vilolence against their fellow man in the name of Christianity are not practicing the true tenets of Christianity.
If someone kicks your ass in the name of pacificism....are they truly pacifists ?
You sound like a bigot.

When did the USA become a Catholic country?
Brazil is a Federal Republic
Federal republic - a state in which the powers of the central government are restricted and in which the component parts (states, colonies, or provinces) retain a degree of self-government; ultimate sovereign power rests with the voters who chose their governmental representatives.
You said countries with the most Catholics, not Catholic countries.

And such as happened during the crusades, it was the religous leaders who perpetuate it and for the purposes of THIS discussion, cannot be ignored or swept under the rug.

That IS significant.
People who are subject to human weaknesses and frailty. Those who perpetrate crime and vilolence against their fellow man in the name of Christianity are not practicing the true tenets of Christianity.
THe Popes in the era we're discussing would disagree with you.

A pacifist will not "kick" ANYONES ass.

LNM doesn't sound like a bigot, LNM sounds like someone that actually respects history, and can discuss it honestly, flaws of the religious ideals of an era inclusive of that discussion. Discussing the FACTS of the negative aspects of a given relgious history doesn't make one a bigot, if it did, ALL of the best historians in history would BE bigots, and that's simply not true.

Nice try at trying to spread the "blame" around to everyone, and that's typical of your frankly idiotic blanket comments you tend to make about many things. As usual, you're wrong.
Just a couple thoughts

Wasn't Mao Zedong raised a Buddhist?
Don't the Jews have a history of fighting with their neighbors for over two thousand years?

China's three main religions--Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism

A pretty warring group.

This sounds like the US.

Even the last 1988 Brazilís constitution, promulgated prior to the fall of the Berlin Wall, has been put to the service of Marxian principles, and grants amazing privileges to the Brazilian Nomenklature (highly paid public officials, in the former USSR), such as the privilege of public servants to increase their own lavish salaries; the right not to be fired, simultaneously with the right to make strikes; public pensions ten times bigger than that of the private sector, and so forth. Instead of being an instrument for protecting the citizen, the leftist oriented constitution really creates privileged castes and protects them from the legitimate claims of the people.

In Brazil, communists are acting in three fronts. The labor union CUT has infiltrated members in the great majority of unions and is always supporting strikes and every kind of mass movements and riots.

No kidding?
Tell Grumpy, this is his post.

Yes they do. The Communists believe that "anarchy" can only come to pass when all people are of one socialistic mind set. To achieve this universal way of thinking, no debate is to be tolerated by the leaders. The same is true for Catholics vis a vis salvation, which is their version of "anarchy".
As I have posted previously; it is not a coincidence that countries that are Catholic also have the most Communists. Neither tolerates debate. While seeming opposites, both make independent thought a vice.

No. Mao tse-tung's mother, who was 13 when married and had no name, was one, but she had little influence on him. While as a child she led him to Buddhism, he rejected it in his early teens.
Don't the Jews have a history of fighting with their neighbors for over two thousand years?
Of them STARTING fighting? No, generally they do not.

But again, nice try. Pity you're such an abysmal failure however.

Again, NO country is considered "catholic" EXCEPT for Vatican City. That's simply a fact.

Not one mention of Buddhism or Taoism OR Confucianism as a reason for those "wars" in that link dear. Sorry. You're still a failure. Try again.

Again, I defy you to find even ONE example where Buddhists or Taoists have initiated a war, let alone one based on their religous beliefs.

Actually I should correct MYSELF. I've read of ONE, around 618 or 619 CE I think it was, when monks from the Shaolin Temple of China fought in a battle that helped establish the Tang Dynasty. But even THAT battle (note: battle, not war), was NOT initiated BY them. It was them protecting their RIGHT to follow their own faith.

Oh Mao rejected Buddhism but Stalin and Hitler didn't reject their religion.

And we can just forget about the genocide of the Hittites, the Girgashites, the Amorites,the Canaanites, the Perizzites,the Hivites, the Jebusites, the Amalekites and the Midianites but we will remember the crusades.

There is a street named after you. It's called ONE WAY.

Stalin reason for killing his people wasn't to promote Christianity but posters on here connect his early religion with his terror. Same for Hitler but we always hear 'he was a Catholic'

So none of those warriors in China were either Buddhist or Taoist or a follower of Confucius.
