nothing more. hey, if the pope were infallible in the crusades, he's infallible now.
dust off the old encyclicals, prod the old bulls, and let us get to the task of defending western civilization and christendom. yes, i am aware of the dangers of religious and "sectarian" passions loosed, and it is hard to get the dogs of war back into the kennels & on their leashes, all nicely held in restraint w/ the choke chains and the muzzled.
i am also aware of the danger of lying on your back while your "brother" pokes you in the belly w/ a bayonet and saws off your head with a dull knife.
"enough! enough! enough!" the west, the judeo-christian ethos has taken enough, and it is time that our religious leaders authorize us to strike back in self defense, and do whatever is necessary to quiet this unrelenting assault upon us. the pope, the patriarch, that idiot arch bishop and the rest of the quivering poopies are worried about a 40 years war?
well, how damned long has it been since leon klinghoffer went off the decks of the achille lauro? how many times does adam of baghdad have to die before the pope and the poopies get some spine?
all i am asking, actually demanding of this silly bunch of sissies, is that they confer religious sanction upon those of us who will defend the faith. who will defend our faith in g_d and in christ. the papal bulls and encyclicals that launched the crusades are still in the vatican libraries, and just as serviceable as ever, and it is time to revitalize them, and to let the faithful defend truth and faith.
