1095 Blood Baths Amongst the Mohamideans
1095 The Crusades:
What was the reason for Crusading? Why did one Crusader say, "Indeed it a just and splendid judgment of God that this place should be filled with the blood of the unbelievers, since it had suffered so long from their blasphemies?" (Shelley 207) The Crusaders, noble in birth, mostly illiterate, ignorant of the words in the bible, grew into a sea of blood hungry sharks.
Deuteronomy 17:6 (The Message)
6-7 But only on the testimony of two or three witnesses may a person be put to death. No one may be put to death on the testimony of one witness. The witnesses must throw the first stones in the execution, then the rest of the community joins in. You have to purge the evil from your community.
Numbers 35:19-21 (The Message)
19 "In such cases the avenger has a right to kill the murderer when he meets him—he can kill him on the spot.
20-21 "And if out of sheer hatred a man pushes another or from ambush throws something at him and he dies, or angrily hits him with his fist and kills him, that's murder—he must be put to death. The avenger has a right to kill him when he gets him.
Genesis 9:6 (The Message)
6-7 Whoever sheds human blood,
by humans let his blood be shed,
Because God made humans in his image
reflecting God's very nature.
You're here to bear fruit, reproduce,
lavish life on the Earth, live bountifully!"
2 Samuel 14:6-8 (The Message)
5-7 He said, "How can I help?"
"I'm a widow," she said. "My husband is dead. I had two sons. The two of them got into a fight out in the field and there was no one around to step between them. The one struck the other and killed him. Then the whole family ganged up against me and demanded, 'Hand over this murderer so we can kill him for the life of the brother he murdered!' They want to wipe out the heir and snuff out the one spark of life left to me. And then there would be nothing left of my husband—not so much as a name—on the face of the earth.
8 The king said, "Go home, and I'll take care of this for you."
