Islam was the only one that spread strictly through the military conquest. Liberalsbackwardsthink is a dot com WordPress site that has many articles on the violent history of Islam. Liberals try to rewrite history to make Christianity the violent one, but Islam is responsible for killing more millions than even 20th century socialism.

WOW AND FABULOUS! I have spent 5 years studying the 5 major religions to understand the global human condition. Which GOD has a favorite! It is ALL illusory and bullshit. I would rather worship, philosophy and science. I went to Japan, China, Israel, Jordan and Italy where most idols are Christian. Go figure. I am a mother and know that "God" loves all of us.

They seem to have not colored yellow the vast stretches of southeast Asia that are Buddhist, or the forms of Buddhism that existed in China and Japan (albeit along side of other local religions). I would also point out to one other commentator that Christianity was spread through violence over much of the Americas and parts of Asia and Africa. In addtion, the Islamicization of Indonesia, the world's largest Moslem country, is more complex than simple "conquest".

Dusty Koellhoffer, Islam is just the latest, most successful religion on the world scene to spread through the military conquest. It's not 'liberal' rewriting history, it's the truth! Christianity has it fair share....
