All the crusades nonsense is red herring at best. You can't complain about something hundreds of years old. Jesus, the stuff our country has done far more recently isn't terribly different.
Thats interesting. If a group is going to claim they are a force for good, then why is it wrong to point out their past crimes?
How many hundreds of years does it take before a crime no longer matters?
And if crimes of Christianity that were committed hundreds of years ago just don't count anymore, then neither do the good things.
So all that nice stuff Jesus said, pfff you cant praise something thousands of years old, Its a red herring at best.
And pointing the finger at crimes of others is just dumb.
"Yes officer, I robbed him, But other people have done worse so you should let me off, Besides I robbed him ages ago so it doesn't count anymore"
As for the claim that a lack of religion is also a religion, Having a strong opinion on a topic doesn't make it your religion. Religion entails a whole lot more.
Enjoy your game.
