    Also, the Crusades, the Spanish Inquisition, the witch-hunts, the KKK killed more than all Muslim attacks.

    MOST cultures grow and progress, leave their past behind. You bring up history, ancient history, and use it to excuse current issues? How dumb is that?

In fact, I sometimes wonder whether you're just a liberal posing as an outrageous conservative in order to damage the conservative cause. No decent person would be such bigoted.
    FYI -- The Crusades were a COUNTER-attack in response to centuries of Islamic aggression against Christian lands/kingdoms...

    Opus Dei is not a branch of Christianity, they are a group within the Catholic Church. Do you really know what Opus Dei is about or only rely on information from anti-Catholic websites?

    1. Crusades were a response to centuries of Islamic aggression.
    2. The Spanish Inquisition actually resulted in a very small number of executions
    3. Witch hunts killed small numbers
    4. What was Christian about the KKK? The largest Christian organization is on their hate list...

    Now consider the more than 1300 years of Islamic aggression on not only Christian lands and kingdoms, but how many Buddhists and Hindus (among others) were killed by Islamic aggression?

    Re: When should the United States of America go to war?

    The Spanish Inquisition got a bunch of people. You can say that not many deaths happened from their trials. But the trials were a witch hunt of sorts and shouldn't have happened in the first place. And there were a lot of trials. So sure, few could have yielded death sentences; but because there was so many that still means a significant number of people were put to death. And the Spanish Inquisition is not the only inquisition to be had. Additionally there great battles in Europe against varying sects of Christianity. And the tradition of protestant vs catholic is alive today (though maybe not quite as violent anymore) in places like Ireland. Christianity was used a lot for warfare, particularly between crowns in Europe. The main thing with Christianity is that eventually we divorced it from our governments and allowed religion to be free. And when we did, we saw that religion started to become far less violent. But you can't pretend like Christianity never did anything bad. State religions get abused.

    I hear he wanted Bush Sr. dead, and that was the reason Bush Jr. invaded Iraq....That is more believeable than Saddam wanting to attack the U. S.
    Saddam had already had his butt kicked in the first Gulf war, he was all talk by the time the second war was being considered.
