The difference being that no rational Christian has acted on those passages for at least several hundred years.
Neither has any rational Muslim acted on the similar passages in the Koran.

All totalitarian ideologies, be it fascism, stalinism, religious fundamentalism, don't have reason behind it. But what they have in common are twisted and dare I say, evil, axioms. If you start from these axioms, and lock away reason, you can use them to "justify" almost any extreme act.

Many commenters then confuse this twisted logic with the belief that this represents the actual reasoning of hundred of millions of people.
