The Bible, the Koran, and Violence

People often make comparisons between Christianity and Islam like what's reported here and here. But we have evidence for Christianity that we don't have for Islam, and this article at Answering Islam discusses some other significant distinctions.

The articles in the Australian media linked above mention that this Australian politician is being criticized by her colleagues, but I doubt that she's being criticized nearly as much as she would be if she had made negative comments about homosexuals, for example. The Christianity that's popular in Australia probably doesn't inspire much commitment or enthusiasm.
