so what about the northern and southern crusades, or where they not crusades.. come historian do tell...
When people picked up Swords to defend him he said " put away your swords, those who live by the sword will die by the sword. "
There is no Christian justification for atrocities committed by Christians. Perhaps that is one reason why the predominantly Christian nations no longer have laws that persecute people in such ways, yet millions of people are oppressed in our world by Islamic Government , which in multiple countries is ruining countless lives with Crusades and inquisitions under a different name.
Then liberals refuse to identify the problem , and defend this epitome of evil and tyranny. I'm more concerned about the suffering of today rather than what Christians did centuries ago , which was extremely ugly, and the opposite of what Christ taught.
Thank God Christians woke up. I see no evidence that the Muslim world is or will,
but after all , they follow a prophet who was a terrorist, rapist, and slave-owner, so it's kind of difficult to liberalize Islam.
I argue with Christians all the time, and when Christians start instituting laws that imprison or execute people for preaching against their faith , then I will just as passionately hate ( that form of) Christianity
What the crusades did accomplish was to piss off the Muslims to the point that the Europeans couldn't cross their lands to get to Asia. The result of that was European exploration, and a guy named Columbus who claimed he could reach Asia by sailing west. What a doofus he was, not realizing that there was a whole new world in the way and that the Northwest Passage would have to wait for a warmer climate.
What liberals, public schools, and media fails to teach about the Crusades and inquisition is that currently hundreds of millions of people are oppressed, enslaved, imprisoned, deprived of free-peech, or executed by the Crusades and inquisitions of today (under a different name).
What they also fail to mention is Muhammad encourages that behavior , while Jesus strongly condemned it, so that behavior is intrinsically muslim, but not intrinsically Christian.
Also, Muhammad came 600 years after the New Covenant to bring back the Barbaric practices of the OT.
And by the way, I hate much of what I read in the scriptures. Religion should never be forced on anyone.
