Thanks for giving that some play Nmaginate. In regards to the debate going on here, I think the way an entity reacts is determined by their position of power within the world order. Entities with less power usually respond asymmetrically, while those with the most power can afford to respond symmetrically. Christians are no less prone to violence, when they are lacking in power, than are Muslims or any other group. There is no moral superiority between religious followers. The difference in behavior that manifest is due to power dynamics.
