I'm completely, 100% with you on this. Again, I was not trying to compare, I think all of humanity, regardless who or where, has groups of people capable of creating madness and atrocities.
I was pointing out to the atrocities commited in the name of Christ. Some other day (and on some different forum!) I might be swayed to post on the atrocities commited by the Muslems in Spain, how Don Pelayo of the Astures and his army defeated the invading Moors "by the Cross", or the Amerindians who sacrificed their women and children to their gods, or cannibalism of all forms ritual and otherwise, clitoral mutilation amongst African tribes, you name it, cruelty is and has been everywhere in the history of mankind. But THIS time, and on THIS forum, I picked on atrocities done in the name of Christ. Period.
