[quote=brotherhrolf]How very informative that you would use 9/11 so cavalierly. Actually, I have over a thousand years of history to back me up. I can invoke Poitiers/Tours, Jerusalem, Valencia, Acre, Constantinople…as examples. Shall I go on? Hatred? No, sir! Firm conviction and you make the very same mistake that Japan did in 1941. I say again, those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it. You have awoken a sleeping giant and filled him with a terrible resolve.
I can go more than a thousand years back to tell you what the church has done. Constantinople,Skythopolis,Anticoch. The Basque people, Goa, The Crusades. But this is besides the point. It is impossible to tell whether or not these events happened for a political reason or a religious one.
I believe you have fim conviction as well, maybe it is hypocritical.
