WHAT WOULD YOU SAY: When Someone Claims The Crusades Prove Christianity Is Just As Violent As Islam

Listen to a conversation on the Hill among congressional staffers about the Crusades and it’s a near certainty that somebody will claim these Middle Ages wars between Christians and Muslims prove Christianity is just as violent as Islam.

There is some truth behind that statement, but it’s not what you might be expecting. What it shows is that Original Sin is a problem every human being who has ever lived (except one, Jesus Christ!) must come to grips with one way or the other.

The Colson Center’s Brook McIntyre lays out the historical facts on three points that make clear the inaccuracy of the argument about what the Crusades “prove” about Christianity:

  1. I would say that in those years there not any groups of people who weren’t violent in trying to achieve what they believed was their God given duty..except perhaps the Jews. They were the ones whose homelands were being invaded. As far as that goes, check out the events in the Republic of the United States of America today. Are not those who worship the god of power demonstrating that very same crusade now?
