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

Hunky Dory, I’m not sure how you can say that because SOME people in a religion were murderers, that makes ALL religion wrong. What about those who were devout and did only good deeds in the name of religion? The Catholic schools have made a significant impact for a lot of people (and I’m not Catholic, just saying). They accepted non-Catholics and gave them a superior education. How about Mother Teresa and all she helped?

And your statement is like saying because SOME red-headed people are serial killers, ALL red-headed people should be exterminated…The leaders and those involved with the crusades did NOT  view and exercise religion the way we do today. Religion and religious leaders was the political structure back then.
