The Crusades
Andy speaks with high school senior Morgan Lunsford about the Church’s involvement in the Crusades.

Does the Church need to get off its high horse when addressing Islamic invasions, Islamic terrorism, and the many Islamic nations that treat women far from equal because of the Church’s involvement in the Crusades?

What are the Crusades?  Why did they start?  Were there any good reasons that the Church was involved in the Crusades?  Why does the Church get such a bad wrap about the Crusades?  Did leaders in the Church condemn any of the evil actions done by members of their side during the time of the Crusades, or only centuries later?
