The World's Largest Coalition of Nontheists and Nontheist Communities!
The video is of Allen West talking about Muslims actually following what it says in their book about idolaters.
Here are my remarks.
If I am wrong in anything I say, please reply so I can make my arguments from here on airtight.

Christianity had its balls cut off (somewhat) during the Enlightenment, but in recent years with such things as the Uganda kill-the-gays law, it's doing its best to catch up with Islam (meanwhile Islamic countries are going through revolutions). Both religions have been better or worse at different time periods and both have the potential for extremism.
I see the point in arguing about Christianity being not a hell of a lot better when it's a Christian fundamentalist talking about how fucked up Islam is. Other than that, it usually gets on my nerves that some people have this kneejerk "but Christianity is just as bad" response whenever anyone says anything about Islam. It's like an assumption that everyone is Christian. When atheists say this to each other it comes off as either dwelling obsessively on Christianity or giving Islam a free pass because of Christianity, because atheists already discuss Christianity much more than they do any other religion.
