I am not surprised you couldn't grasp the simple and obvious truth:

It would help if you actually posted your point, instead of illustrations that are fundamentally flawed.

Religions that are abused = bad

OK

Some religions are currently worse than others = true

Ah, so this was why you lumped all Christian abuses, from assassinating people to committing mass suicide, into one category called "going door to door proselytizing". In your mind, it's no worse to kill a homosexual than to bother your wife in the afternoon.

Got it.

So you used that comparison to illustrate how some religions are worse than others.

Freedoms are more prevalent in democracies = true

So you were comparing a fictional door to door Muslim bomber in America with an actual door to door Christian proselytizer in order to demonstrate something about democracies. Strange. Next time I'd suggest comparing a democratic country and a non-democratic country if you want to make this point.

Education often leads to lower dependence on religion = true

Ah, that's why you inserted the word ignorant regarding the Muslim bomber. To try to represent that he wasn't educated.

Because the Christians who go out and torture homosexuals(who you have chosen to lump together with the door to door proselytizers) have education, which makes them less dependent on their religion.

If that's what you were trying to say, OK, you just have a severe communication problem.

On the other hand, if you were trying to pretend that only fundamental muslims murder in the name of their religion, by using the non-killing proselytizer as the representative of all fundi Christians and the suicide bomber as the representative of all fundi muslims, well than you just were lying.
