They loved it. Just come to Turkey and visit the first places of Christianity. Rome killed them so brutally they had to live under 40 meters or built a church near cliffs.

When you have never opened a history book you post stuff like that.mostly americans are at fault.so let me tell you something.the middle east and most parts of eastern mediterranean where parts of first the roman empire and then the eastern roman empire.christianity spread through the roman empire and when the western part fell it kept on going with the eastern roman empire which was orthodox christian.the muslim nations attacked incessantly the christian lands and converted them to islam.the crusaders you depict here were christian attemps to bring back these lands to christians,not spread christianity to people who didnt know the religion.but as westerners always do,they managed to only weaken the eastern roman empire to the point of collapse,thus facilitating the spread of islam even more.

While there were instances when christianity spread by the sword , most of the time it didn't happen like this.

Not true, the crusades were a response to Muslim attacks, look it up

Funny, but mostly inaccurate. (Non-Christian here) the fact is the majority of the time where religion was warlike was either the crusades, or put against other Christian countries/countrymen, like the inquisition. Most of the time (And by most. I mean like +90%) conversion was done completely by missionaries, and people having visits to Christian countries and having their world view changed. This was also true for other religions, as well like in the famous example of the Islamic Norsemen who travelled to Spain and converted. So in other words, christianity mostly spread by the left image, and very rarely on the right.
