Um. No.

The title of the article is, "Should Christians Convert Muslims?" and if you have any doubt about what the answer should be, let's take a look at how John Ashcroft says you should go about explaining the superiority of Christianity.

"Islam is a religion in which God requires you to send your son to die for him. Christianity is a faith in which God sends his son to die for you."
That's not exactly religious tolerance, is it?

(I know Ashcroft tried to backpedal this statement, I remember the fuss at the time, but like all pieces of propaganda, it's taken on a life of its own, which is all the more reason why those in power in our secular government should keep their mouths shut about religion. In any case, a cursory study of Ashcroft's background suggests that this reveals his true beliefs.)

(I wish someone had asked him about the Crusades, when rather a lot of Christians were sent off to die for the greater glory of their deity.)
