And don't forget the Muzzies pulled the same stunt roughly 900 years later when Calvin and his followers were busy burning heretics and weakening Europe with the 30 Years War.
The Catholics were not blameless in that fiasco, but it wasn't Calvinist armies which stopped the invasion at the gates of Vienna.
FWIW, I'm not a Catholic. But I appreciate what they did to stop the Muslim hordes.
