The extremists are stuck in the 10th century....
It is very easy to get stuck in 10 century fanaticism or even ignorance when one does not know much history but mostly a television/movie education...ie a public education.
Almost from the beginning the Muslims were on the move invading into Spain and into France before they were stopped by Charles Martel ...aka..Charles the Hammer at Tours, France in 732AD. This is a piece of history totally avoided by our politicians and even our enlightened school systems while they ply their guilt templates on an ignorant and uninformed public while touting the guilt of the Crusades. This took place some 300 years before the first Crusade.
History is often very interesting by the non virtue of what is left out of our educations.
There exists no such instruction for a Christian Church to carry out a Crusade in the name of God or even an Inquisition. Any Church doing so is operating outside the Biblical instructions for a Church or they are in fact a Counterfeit Church. Yet many who use the term Fanatic to describe Christians and the Church don't seem to grasp this simple fact.
The Christian Belief system by the Word is never spread by the Sword or Burning at the Stake.
Anyone reading John Fox and his Book of Martyrs will know the path of the Lord's Church and it is not through Rome.
I do not approve of the Crusades or the Inquisition as Christian ..for the simple reason that they do not follow the New Testament instruction to come out from amongst them and be ye separate. Once again ..the Christian Belief and practice is not spread by the sword or stake.
This cannot be said of Islam.
Those versed in history will know this difference..instinctively.
As to the KKK...there is no difference between this and Rome in carrying out their beliefs by the Sword.
The Word speaks of people as nations...not by man made constructs such as Race. Race is used in the Word in the context as running a race or winning a race. Never in the man made construct. This is very telling to those who can think outside of public education/television/movie non standards...or what some of us also call..."Guilt Politics."
This has become so ingrained in a guilt ridden people who don't know any history and cannot think outside of emotional train wreck non standards. Or simply put ..cannot think outside the flesh.
The man made construct of race and racism has been whored out so much by a political system needing this whoredom to sell the souls of a nation to their whorish politics and political system. They do not intend to solve the race problem..ever...for their whoredoms are dependent on it.
They intend to make merchandise of it and people by it.
Once you see this for what it is..you can clearly see certain peoples out here for whom if you were to remove the race issue ..they would have no job.
Guilt politics does not work on me. I have seen to much of it being played out to control people and prevent individual thinking.
It is the same with Islam...Politics has more in common with Islam and Ishmael than it does with the people of the nations discussed and with Issac.
Islam and politics will seduce a nation and it's people unto it's whoredoms for political lucre.
Once you know and are convinced of this simplicity ...the king has no clothes so to speak. They are naked...and obvious as to what they intend to do.
What you have in history by the Crusades is two systems of whoredom..Islam and Rome spreading their power and influence by the Sword.
The KKK by the Sword.
What I find very interesting in regards to peoples beliefs and understandings is the use of two similar whorish systems to represent the New Testament Church when no such instruction exists.
Only public education non standards can cause such confusion when it becomes obvious with a little thinking what is going on.
And these wars of "confusion " are still going on today.
Hope this helps you to learn to think outside the box of todays very popular non standards.
