I have known plenty of violent Christians. I have known plenty of openly racist, sexist and homophobic Christians. Hundreds of Christian bishops and thousands of Christian priests sexually abused God knows how many children or protected the abusers. Christians practically committed genocide with Native Americans, kidnapping their children and destroying their culture. The Holocaust was essentially the full flowering of Christian anti-Semitism, which was ever-present among Christians for 2,000 years. You're just not willing to be honest.

"If thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out!" Following this dictum,self castration was practiced by many early Christians, until finally being condemned at the Council of Nicea in 325CE, and ordered that anyone who had done it be removed from whatever office they held, but that failed to put an end to it.. Origen, an early church father castrated himself, and Tertullin praised him for. As early as 250CE, Minicus Felix condemned it, but was still practiced in 350CE when it was again condemned by Ambrose of Milan. It was finally condemned and stopped, but it was practiced by Christians for almost 4 centuries
