Vatican changes heart over Crusades - again
      Reopens debate on war for 'noble aim' of regaining Holy Land for Christianity

      Despite a 2000 request for "pardon," widely interpreted as an
apology to Muslims for the Crusades, by the late Pope John Paul II, the Vatican reopened the debate last week with a conference that characterized the wars fought centuries ago as defensive measures taken with the noble aim of regaining the Holy Land for Christianity, according to the London Times.

      The conference, held at the Regina Apostolorum Pontifical University, brought together scholars from around the world
who were anything but apologetic for the series of wars fought by European Christendom over 750 years ago.

…While agreeing the Crusaders were sometimes undisciplined and committed acts of cruelty, it was true of the Muslims and troops, even now, in "all ideological wars." The worst excesses of the Crusaders, Riley-Smith said, were generally reserved for the Orthodox and heretics. Those who seek forgiveness for the Crusades, he said, "
do not know their history."

      "Westerners should not be embarrassed by the Crusades," Spencer concluded. "It's time to say, 'enough,' and teach our children to
take pride in their own heritage. They should know that they have a culture and a history of which they can and should be grateful; that they are not the children and grandchildren of oppressors and villains; and that their homes and families are worth defending against those who want to take
them away, and are willing to kill to do so."

This article is nothing more then a method by which to twist the historic facts concerning the Crusades of Rome upon the Muslim nation. History has already verified that the Vatican created the Islamic faith so as to create a race of people that would run rampant across the land killing off Jews and Christians. Once they conquered Jerusalem the Vatican would step in and exact payment. (For historic info on this as is related by an ex-Jesuit priest. Click here) When the Muslim’s refused to give Jerusalem to Rome, Rome responded with the Crusades! THAT is historic fact. What this article is preaching is nothing more then a pack of lies designed to gain acceptance for WAR against those that won’t allow the Vatican its unbiblical claim to Real Estate in Jerusalem.

The stage has been set. They are proclaiming this “noble aim” that makes the Crusades appear dignified only to gain control of the "Holy Land" for themselves. They also make such “noble” claims to seed the "approval to kill" in the hearts of many around the world. Perfect timing I say after so many have been “conditioned” by the entertainment industry into thinking less and less about murder.

Whether it's a bluff to make the Muslim bow or not makes no difference. The fact they spoke of such things in a positive manner is all that's needed in the global arena. Especially today when the bulk of the human hearts are exactly as Christ said they would be in Matthew 24:37 Soon the Sabbath keeping child of God will be considered worthy of death for the same "noble" reasons. Rome has all along stated to kill for their cause was a good thing. In fact, they have put it in writing many times!

"The Catholic Church has persecuted ... when she thinks it is good to use physical force she will use it... Will the Catholic Church give bond that she will not persecute?... The Catholic Church gives no bonds for her good behavior." -Western Watchman, Dec. 24, 1908

"The church may by divine right confiscate the property of heretics, imprison their person, and condemn them to flames.  In our age, the right to inflict the severest penalties, even death, belongs to the church.  There is no graver offense than heresy, therefore it must be rooted out." - Public Eccliastical, Vol. 2, p.142.

Mr. Raywood Frazier, in the booklet
"Catholic Words and Actions," presents documentary proof of the intensive persecution of Protestants and non-Catholics in
Columbia, South America, between 1949 and 1953. The Catholic Church had the support of the Columbian government in the destruction of many churches, and the liquidation of more than 1,000 documented cases -- some of whom were shot, drowned, or emasculated. He says there is evidence of over 60,000 killed. Pope Pius XII awarded the President of Columbia with one of the highest awards which the Church bestows, and praised Columbia for its example of the Catholic faith." (Pp. 59,60)
