The crusades are quite possibly the most misunderstood event in European history. Now put this down in your notebook, because it will be on the test: The crusades were in every way a defensive war.

From Jerusalem, Tall Tales - Michael Coren

It is, I suppose, a great Canadian moment: producer James Cameron and director Simcha Jacobovici announcing to the world that they have found the tomb of Jesus, His wife, His child and assorted friends and relatives.

Pope Pius XII, the Catholic Church, and the Holocaust” attacks Pacelli as an anti-Semite and the Church as a whole as an institution thoroughly, and perhaps inextricably, permeated by anti-Semitism.
