My understanding is that a French General, when asked by his lieutenants how to separate the Muslims from the Christians...

Amaury was a clergyman, not a general (though, because he was the church's representative on the crusade, he was nominally in charge of the army). The Albigensians were not Muslim; they were sort-of "Christians" (though only by their heritage... their religion actually resembled a more dualistic Manichaean sort of religion with a little Donatism thrown in).

I love the internet, Thanks.

Donatism... is that the one where they keep saying "donate money"?
