Most major religions have had periods where they engaged in forced conversion and conquest.

Really? What major religions would that be? If you are talking about Christianity (e.g. Crusades, colonialism, counter-reformation, etc.), let me point out a simple fact to you. When muslims rape and pillage and force conversions, they are following the fundamental tenets of their founder and their Koran. When so-called Christians do this, they are going directly against the teachings of their founder, Jesus Christ. See the difference?

Of course I see the difference, and have pointed it out many times. But for some reason, theology never seems to stop bullies and tyrants. When you get down to the bottom line, what matters is how cultures handle their bullies.

Look at the track record. Muhammad killed many and made the first Jihads. Jesus killed no one and in fact healed a few. I wonder if there are any healings in the Koran by Mohammed. I'll bet not! Mad Mo' was too busy making wars and looking for child brides.
