Trust me, no one be it Christians or otherwise can forget about (drum roll please?) The Crusades.
It's been talked about, discussed, thrown
in everyone's face (at least twice), presumed, exhumed, dismantled and put back together again. Trust me, we know all
about it like the back
of our hand. So *thank you*
so much for reminding us about it... Goodness gracious we not bring up *The Crusades*
Christianity is discussed, or better yet, talked down upon.
But I think you seem to be forgetting something... Sure, the crusades were a dark part in Christianities history... Oh, did you see that?
, yes, that's right, history
. This happened how long ago
and is still
being discussed today like it's
Christianities version of Hitler... But (dare I say it?) Christianity has evolved.
(Unlike Islam which is still stuck in the middle ages.)
When is the last time you've heard of a Christian priest discuss the beheading of all those who do not convert? Now, when is the last time you've
heard of an Imam discuss the beheading of all those who do not convert?
When is the last time a Christian stoned to death an adolescent youth because she was raped/fell in love with the wrong boy/didn't wear a vail?
You see, despite Christians being pretty much a peaceful religion on each tier down to the individual believers and up to the priests, people like you
dog on Christianity, bringing up (aforementioned drum roll please) *The Crusades*
Yes, Christianity once, long ago in a galaxy far far away
had crusades... Christians MUST be evil because of it right?
Well, in your closed little protected world, ever think that maybe, just
maybe *GASP!* Islam had (drum roll one last time) *Crusades*
well? I bet that never occurred to you huh? That Islam also had crusades... So, should we add that to the list of things we don't like about Islam
too, just like you do with Christianity? I mean fair is fair right? And it's not like we don't have enough crap on Islam over the past ten years
with current things they've done...
I don't mean to single you out and I don't mean to bring this off topic. I just get soooooooo sick of hearing, "Zomg! Christians had
crusades!!111ones, they MUST be evil! Never forget! Crusades! Crusaaaades!"
And for your reading pleasure, see this link for a quick look back into Islams crusades. You might be surprised at what you learn.
