The religion of love

Christians love to compare their gentle and loving religion favorably with certain other religions that shall remain nameless. They conveniently leave out that Christianity looks so gentle and loving because, at least in the West, it has been watered down beyond recognition since the Enlightenment. Consider how modern Christians shrug off doctrinal differences over which Christians in previous centuries killed one another in creative ways. Consider also the religion of love in its undiluted form in Uganda.
