Indonesia's example sounds loud and clear I think. It's not Islam the problem, but certain extreme views of it - and the same goes for Christianity.

I guess Islam spread largely through missionaries in Indonesia...not via conquest. In India, the extreme southern tip had the same experience as Indonesia - largely peaceful preachers and merchants spread the religion, but the North faced conquerors which was quite destructive.

I knew this thread would attract the racists at some point. It seems any sort of thread about anything vaguely connected to Islam, or Muslims or an Islamic country, even if its about a sodding new animal find to biologists, denigrates into bollocks. Its not like posting anything about a Christian country or Westerners degenerates into talking about the Gulf War or the KKK does it?

Why hasn't the thread on churches in Islamic countries not gone into the same geopolitical rivalry?

one example and its the Taliban far from universal example. so i should judge all nordic states as resurgent neo-fascist entities due to the growing xenophobic tendencies of the population

Churches that used classical styles were more about blending with local culture.
Though the early Christian church was far from open minded, they did have to blend many European traditions with Abraham ones.
So, a classical church paid respect to the architecture of a region at the very least.

so a classical church in lets say in Manila, or somewhere in latin america ia blending in with the local cultures. the same cultures that the same church eradicated. now that my friend is ignorance and socrates would not be proud

so your point is just

Not in the colonial era, because classical isn't the local fashion.
In Rome and parts of Europe it was. Religious groups should adapt to the land they move to out of respect.

Today, it would blend in perfectly because European culture is pretty much a major part of Latin America.

It is, because it is the assumption that these things are unique to Europeans.
Do you think the rest of the world was just having a tea party before Europeans came around? No, they were killing each other just as much as Europeans were (look at the Aztecs).
Yes, our history is blood filled, but so is everyone else’s (that is the history of humanity), but it is also filled with beautiful and amazing things.

Native Americans you mean? I am in no way justifying the removal and killing of natives, I think it was wrong, but what about other Europeans? Hm? Like the French who blended quite well with native people. Plus, Native Americans were not exactly in this loving pack either, they were very diverse and often at war with each other.

War and slaughter is not justified, but it isn’t unique to Europeans.
