To: Voice in your head
Before getting caught up with Holy views that transcend the ordinary man, one ought to understand the Crusades are a reaction to the onslaught of militant Islam. That the ordinary man can understand.
There you go........nice post. There seems to be this misguided notion that the Crusades were begun to force Christianity among the non-believers. It was started to only stop the radical Muslims as you said.
With the barbarians at the gates......there was no choice. Remarkable how history keeps repeating itself, isn't it?
