Copts for vengeance. By some accounts, Copts are suffering the worst persecution they have experienced in 700 years. In Syria, Islamist rebels are

There has been a concerted effort by posters online, long before I came to ATS to spread hatred aimed at a certain demographic, Christian,
So it leads me to one possibility.
I have been critical of some aspects of Islam, when it comes to stoning women, or hanging homosexuals, or oppressing women and when I did I was
I never criticize other faiths and when I do talk about Islam I don't use the hate filled rhetoric I see daily aimed at Christians.
This leads me to only one conclusion.
A enormous amount of the population of planet earth, wants Christianity eradicated from the planet.
If you think hate filled post on the internet don't make an impact on society, think again.
Be wary, unwittingly you may be inadvertently causing someone somewhere on this planet to hate, and hate so deeply, they blow up a church.
