Not really as per the Pope . The Vatican tried to subvert the already spreading Christian faith . Remember Christianity started with Jesus and spread throughout the Middle East from that time on . Catholism started some time after that . They acquired copies of the Gospel that had propagated throughout the Middle East and there were many . They did not have the only copy as some think .


Pope Urban used the Knights Templar (French/Normans) to excite a real? false threat to his domaine in the mddle east and they all went east to Turkey first, then on to Jeruselem...It was not a good campaigne. Those Knights that survived came back extremely disillusioned, as to the Popes commitment, what exactly he was undermining and as it turns out the ploy was to murder those left that hadnt died in the Crusade and take their land. Those that survived fled to the British Isles. Pappa won.

You would think Jesus at least had a facebook page,

Maybe there is a facebook page for the crusades?


There could be, but instead of under the 'crusades' it would be under 'look at the already totally decimated cities we thought we had to conquer; ruins instead, stench, rotting bodies and starvation' . Already destroyed; who was the culprit that takes formost credit? This was a 3-4 year campaign that was too late. Jeruselem wasnt inhabitable for years afterwards; it was hell on earth.

This is an honest take on the Vatican. I never thought they cared that much about the resurrection as they did forcus (obsessively)on Mary and her childs immaculate birth. I can only come up with Pauls church as the start of Catholism in Greece, somewhere around 350AD. Constantine (Turkey) same time period was instituting his own brand of Christianity with 50% of it pagan diety worship, so as not to arrouse the native factions, he neatly hid both brands of worship into one and got away with it (as in not overthrown in bloody revolution).
