In less enlightened Christian societies women are beaten if they commit adultery, they are forced to submit to their husbands, they are forbidden to
take contraception they are treated as second-class citizens and as chattels. So PLEASE don’t preach that we are any better on mass – we are

you make the argument, that some muslims dont practice what they preach and we shouldnt judge them all by that. yet in the same breath you do exactly
that to Christians.
christians do not believe in killing adultresses.....
are you familiar with this story....
"Jesus went unto the mount of Olives. And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and
taught them. And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, They say unto him,
Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? This
they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them
not. So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them,
"He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her."
And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning
at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but
the woman, he said unto her,
"Woman, where are those thine accusers? Hath no man condemned thee?"
She said, No man , Lord. And Jesus said unto her,
"Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more."
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying,
"I am the light of the world:
he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life." (John 8:1-12)
So if your arguing that christians kill adultresses out of what is taught in the bible you are wrong....
