RE: The Crusades Weren’t That Bad? Uh, No.

First off, “The victor tells the tales”

Secondly the ‘Crusade’ stories were nothing more than a cover up for the Catholic Church to send the Templars around destroying all ‘heretic’ beliefs, which I’m all for, but they also happened to be destroying all evidence of Gnosticism in the process, deeming it to be heretical, even though they were the private teachings Jesus gave to his students/disciples. Oh, and they rounded up all the old relics.
