The religions themselves are not the problem.... In every religion you have a bunch of renegades who always take things to the extremes. The Christians and Muslims in Iraq were likely minding their own business, living amongst each other until these thugs entered the scene..

I remember a book written about the Crusades set in the times during Baldwin the Leper King and Saladin. It was historical fiction, so you can take this scenario with something of a grain of salt. However, the scenario was that a bunch of armored knights were captured by much Saracen light cavalry. Then they were offered the choice - convert or die. However, it wasn't so simple. The manner of death was to stand fully armored in medieval plate baking in the desert sun in full view of the oasis, nice shady tents, men not wearing armor drinking cool water ... One by one, the knights were driven made by their thirst and the heat and broke proclaiming Islam. One by one they were immediately given plenty to drink and led away to succor.

In the end, only two of the original number could stand to hold out until death.

It's very easy to say that you will not denounce your faith, but until you are truly tested ... how many of us can know for sure?

I could only hope that God would stand with me and help me hold firm.

I think that's why a lot of people don't resist.

It is most probable that those who resist are tortured and those who do not simply get a bullet. This discourages future resistance in the future convert-or-dies.

As a Christian, I have already made my decision. I will take a bullet in the head this very second in the name of Jesus Christ. It isn't a hard decision at all. He died for me (and you), so I would gladly return the favor.

I can't agree with them on what to wear, much less the son of God.

I'd go kicking and cursing them with my last breath.

Awesome song.

As Mr. Petty said, "There ain't no easy way out."

I'm not religious in the sense of following the teachings of a specific faith. However, if I were to find myself in this position I would certainly find it hard to do much more than get myself shot. Not because I fear repercussions of denouncing Jesus, god, or any other deity. Simply because I have a big mouth, and a piece of # driven by religion with an AK-47 pressed against my temple will only prove that fact.
