    An excuse, facade or whatever you want to call it. If there were No Religion there would have been no Crusades.

    Absolutely, Maoism, and communism have killed far more than the nuts saying it was in the name of God.

    That is like saying if franz ferdinand had never been shot there would have been no WW1. There will always be wars and battles fought for different excuses but the reasons are always the same. The powerful want to become more powerful.

    Do you actually believe what you are saying?

    It boggles my mind when people make the claim there would be less wars and fighting with no religion. They would just use a different excuse.

    if there were no guns, there would have been no columbine, either...


    blame where blame is due; squarely on the shoulders of the individual, nowhere else. Evil men will always find a pretense for their evil

    Mistaken thought, BS. Do you or do you not follow what is written in the Bible? If so, here is a little quote for you.

    Regarding the Crusades...

    Quotes from your Bible: (Deuteronomy 17:12 NLT)

    "Anyone arrogant enough to reject the verdict of the judge or of the Priest who represents the LORD your God must be put to death."

    When you have orders like this in the Bible, how do you not go out and commit these atrocities? Your Priest, Bishop or Pope commands it,
    then it is a direct order from God, disobey and be put to death.

    I was always taught that religion and business were seperate affairs. As were religion and politics, as were business and politics. Whenever they cross there seems to be trouble.

    I don't know about how you guys view us christians these days, but for me, I equate christ believerrs with a great work ethic, with a strong moral compass. I've never been screwed in business transactions with any. (the christian community, is actually quite quite small, somebody screws up, news travels super fast. especially bad news.)
    I'm not saying that non-believers don't have these work ethics and moral compasses, however I'd be more inclined to trust those within the same religious organization based on our shared faith and value system

    This thread is getting very very close to IBTL for religious bashing...please keep it clean. and FF, good on you. There would never be this type of bashing if you had say a GALT flag on your site.
