Hinduism and Buddhism are in the top 5 religions in the world. They do not promote their religion or force people to convert. They do no put fear into people to make them convert.
And they don't instigate wars claiming their god told them to. And they don't attack or oppress those with differing opinions. And they're not represented by hippocrites who loudly proclaim some of the tenets of their religion while at the same time, breaking many other tenets. And the list can go on further if I felt like it.

what's up with people hating asians cuz they are christians?
1) B/C they're literally worshipping a white man
2) It's sad to see our own ppl succumbing to falsehoods.
Well actually Jesus was more like to be brown, but the bible does say white is good, color is bad and all asians are of color, except siberians
Jesus is whatever skin color you want him to be. He never walked this earth. Maybe in bible world, but not this world.
He walks and lives in the minds that believe in him.
Jesus did walked this earth kid! Theres billions of concrete evidence supporting this...Not to mention the Bible as well.
The bible is the ONLY one.
No one has the slightest physical evidence to support a historical Jesus; no artifacts, dwelling, works of carpentry, or self-written manuscripts. All claims about Jesus derive from writings of other people. There occurs no contemporary Roman record that shows Pontius Pilate executing a man named Jesus. Devastating to historians, there occurs not a single contemporary writing that mentions Jesus. All documents about Jesus got written well after the life of the alleged Jesus from either: unknown authors, people who had never met an earthly Jesus, or from fraudulent, mythical or allegorical writings.
Christ never existed. Jesus Christ did not invent or found Christianity. All evidence that can be gleaned from a scholarly examination of authentic history points to an obvious conclusion: there never was any Jesus Christ roaming about in 30 A.D. or thereabouts teaching a new religion. The whole story was invented and concocted much later. It was patched together out of bits and pieces of other religios text, until finally they had a movement going that pulled in the Roman Emperor Constantine. It was this Roman Emperor, who in the year 313 A.D. put Christianity into business.
Still No Bible at 300 A.D. At this time the Christian movement, although nearly 300 years old, still did not have a written text or Bible. Under the powerful direction of Emperor Constantine a convocation of church fathers was called. At this meeting a number of scripts and writings were put together and a heated controversy ensued over a period of several months. Many writings were considered, discussed, argued over, and reviewed. Some were revised, some were rewritten, some were rejected. The final package that emerged from the Council of Nicaea was what was called the New Testament, a contradictory, demented conglomeration of far-out nonsense.
To it was patched the Jewish Old Testament. The Christian movement now had a Bible, with Constantine as final arbiter. Constantine exercised the full powers of his position,financially, militarily and in terms of legal enforcement to now promote Christianity and crush all opposition. Christianity was now on its way.
