And, in return, North Africa got a gigantic horde of enslaved Christian Children from the scam known as The Children's Crusade. I guess it's a good trade for this moron.

\"We got a lot of science and technology from the Muslims during the crusades\"

And now we try to demonize science and technology along with the Muslims...Fundie circular logic.

Perfectly fine comment...Europe DID improve technologically quite a bit due to the Crusades. At no point does he say that the loss of life was a good thing.

I guess that makes the concentration camps OK, too. After all, much of what we know about hypothermia and other conditions is based on the Nazis' detailed records of the \"medical experiments\" performed on prisoners in said camps.
