...that islam was spread by the sword is one of the greatest myths...i've had the pleasure of shooting it down in class...
first, the idea of god in most christian circles is foreign to africa....that god is in a certain place, that worship of god is a seperate practice from what we do everyday...

white christianity spread through heinous ways...african christianity is still practiced as it was among egyptian coptic and ethiopian orthodox churches

..islam spread through trade,intermarriage and conversion...arabs were only catalysts on the fringes of the continent...africans did it from there..

damn i lost my train of thought...i'll get back...
