How are they examples of Christianity promoting violence?


You said and I quoted "and they're not trying to forcibly oppose their way of life on others."

You might not consider jail force but I do. When Jehovah Witnesses knock on my door trying to convince me that giving up blood infusions is for the good of god is far different than if they were trying to pass a law banning it for everyone. More so to then require jail time for those that do would also be imposing their beliefs via force.

The troubles was just a bunch of terrorists fighting over land, the religion did not promote this or sanction it.


Wrong.
"The conflict began during a campaign to end discrimination against the Catholic/nationalist minority by the Protestant/unionist government and police force"

The Troubles - Wikipedia[^]

"Another angle of the conflict was sectarian or communal violence between the majority unionist or loyalist Protestant population and the minority Catholic or nationalist one. "

The Northern Ireland Conflict 1968-1998 – An Overview | The Irish Story[^]

"And yet, political leaders in Northern Ireland are still struggling to bring Protestant and Catholic groups together."

For Northern Ireland, Wounds From 'The Troubles' Are Still Raw : Parallels : NPR[^]

"when Catholic Irish nationalists, favoring unification with the Irish Republic to the south, began a violent campaign against Britain and the Loyalist Protestant paramilitaries who supported continued British rule."
