Is There More Violence In The Bible Or The Quran?

051407-jenkins1Monday on "The Alan Colmes Show," Alan spoke with Distinguished Professor at Baylor University and religious historian Dr. Philip Jenkins to discuss whether the Quran contained more violence than the Bible, an issue which has become prominent in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo attacks.

Dr. Jenkins told Alan that if both extreme Christians and Muslims go looking for violent acts in their respective books of belief to justify their actions, they will most likely find them. They also discuss the events and philosophies of the Christian and Muslim religions extremists use as examples, if these extreme wings will ever move back to the center, and if Dr. Jenkins believes that the United States is the best place for a practicing Muslim.
