If you didn't learn all about this in history class, then you weren't paying attention. Not only was this taught, but no leftist ever lets a Christian forget and they constantly use it to justify everything Islam does today.
So use some intellectual honesty here.
Was it wrong for Catholics to do it then? In which case, it's also wrong for Muslims to do what they do today. Or if you excuse Islam using this excuse, then it was likewise excusable for the Catholics to have done it then.
You cannot have it both ways.

You still don't understand
True Christianity is not a religion. The scriptures teach that it is a personal relationship with the Living God, through Jesus Christ (Yeshua) . That relationship begins with acknowledgement, and confession of sins directly to God through Jesus. It is a free gift that must be accepted directly, and not through any other human.
Remember the religious leaders in Jesus day??????
Do I get through to you?
