Obama's statement saying that "during the Crusades and the Inquisition ... people have committed terrible acts in the name of Christ."
What shocked these people? One really wonders if Gilmore and Donohue really do not know the history of Christianity, or if they think this story should be hidden. Before the sad picture of education in the United States, the possibility exists of their ignorance. So just as sad, the possibility exists that they know this story and want to hide it.
Historical records show that Christianity was very violent for long periods of its development. The horrors of the Crusades and the Inquisition which Obama refers, are shown in the official documents of the church. The Crusades were a long series of military expeditions fully sponsored by the church during a period of 300 years to eject Muslims from the "holy land". The inquisition lasted 400 years and was a multinational terror network run by the church against other religions and specifically against the "infidels" (unbelievers) and "heretics" (people with "bad" beliefs).
For example, under Pope Innocent III, the Christian powers waged a war of terror against "heresy" in what is now south-western France. A million people were killed in 15 years. Christians razed entire towns. When the "soldiers of Christ" asked the bishop Arnaud l'Amaury what to do with Catholics in a city, the bishop said, "Kill them all, God will know his own." The papal envoy notified later than the entire population of the city are 20 000 people had been killed. (NdT: This is the massacre of the inhabitants of the town of Béziers, where between 15 and 20 thousand people were massacred by troops under the command ... Church)
