The peace loving Muslims are as irrelevant to these times as they were at the time of that medieval pope.
That world of Urban II, was vastly different to the world of 2017, in so many aspects, yet there is one constant: the threat of Islam.
The Crusades were defensive wars to halt the aggression of the Muslims and the loss of Christian lands. Recognition of that threat led a desperate Urban II to make one of history’s most important speeches in his to call to the faithful to defend the faith. His speech at Clermont, in response to a plea from the Byzantine Emperor, has not survived but five written accounts speak of its power.
Francis, the current ‘flibbertigibbet Pope,’ (to quote Hal Colebatch), has simply taken ‘refuge in denial,’ of the existence of Islamic terrorism.
