Given the recent terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, California, Islam has been under attack for being a violent religion. But what about Christianity? Most believers overlook the brutal passages that discuss how to beat your slave (Exodus 21:20-21) and genocide (1 Samuel 15:1-9). Not to mention the verses that call for female subservience (1 Timothy 2:11-15), and direct us to only eat the cheddar biscuits at Red Lobster (Leviticus 11:12). Understandably, most churches prefer to discuss the messages of peace and love spoken by Jesus Christ.
