So it's less evil to kill off a whole group of people because of their religion than it is to kill them based on their race? Sorry, but that's just bull pucky, sherman.

No, Its not less evil. Sorry if you got that impression, everyone. But while the Turks only saw the Armenian population as a threat inside the Turk area of their Empire, Hitler wanted to destroy all the Jews in the world. The Turks wanted the Armenians out of Turky because they thought that the Christian Armnians would aid the Christian Russians in WWI.

Jewish is a religion. Christian is a religion.

One word. Genocide.

Main Entry: geno·cide
Pronunciation: 'je-n&-"sId
Function: noun
Date: 1944
: the deliberate and systematic destruction of a racial, political, or cultural group

They are quite comparable, just as how the Brits tried to knock off the Irish (in a more subtle way).

So your saying the only true Genocide was that of the Holocust?

No, I'm saying the Holocaust is not the first, nor the last instance of genocide. What was done to the Armenians is no different from what was done to the Jews.

Btw, "cultural" in the def. of genocide would include religion.
