Murderous and compromised history

The Times of London reports:
The president of Germany's central council of Muslims went further, saying that Catholicism's murderous and compromised history left it with no moral leg to stand on to criticise other religions.

"After the blood-stained conversions in South America, the Crusades in the Muslim world, the coercion of the church by Hitler's regime, and even the coining of the phrase 'holy war' by Pope Urban II, I do not think the church should point a finger at extremist activities in other religions," said Aiman Mazyek.
Good, let's compare histories. It is the Aztecs who were the sadistic cannibals, not the Christians. The Crusades helped save Europe from the evil Mohammedan empire. Hitler was not a Catholic; the Mohammedans have much more in common with Hitler. It is the Mohammedans who believe in systematically exterminating the Jews. A holy war was a just war for freedom; a Mohammedan jihad is an excuse for terrorist to murder innocent civilians.

I'd rather compare the religions today. Mohammedans today defend killing infidels; Christians do not.

At first, the president of Germany's central council of Muslims, is right when he says, there is something wrong with the Catholic Church and the Papacy in Europe. But then he went on wrongfully.
There have been violent conversions of so-called heathens in Europe when Europe changed from Antique to Middle Ages. Subsequently all Europeans were oppressed by the clergy of the church, which church was later called the Catholic Church. The incredible power of the Catholic Church could graciously be broken by the Reformation. But still many people are Catholics in Europe and in other parts of the world.
But what does the president of Germany's central council of Muslims say? His saying does not reveal European Catholics as victims of the Catholic Church. His saying gives European Christians culprit status of having converted another Continent violently. He doesn`t criticize the Christianization of Europe, but the Conquista. This is the general tendency here. We are always the bad men, in the words of our own media.
