    The First Crusade



    “How can one explain this trend towards a more colorless and shallow life? Well, the work was easier, if less healthy, and it brought in more money, more leisure, and perhaps more entertainment. A day in the country is long and hard. And yet the fruits of their present life were worthless compared to a single coin of their former life: a rest in the evening and a rural festivity. That they no longer knew the old kind of happiness was obvious from the discontentment which spread over their features. Soon dissatisfaction, prevailing over all their other moods, became their religion.” - Ernst Jünger, The Glass Bees

    Christianity had its uses and keeping invading Muslims out of Europe was one of its finest achievements.

    Christianity is Europe. Without it it falls apart. As we are seeing now.

    Europe's greatest triumphs and disasters have been due to Christianity.

    I don't dispute the historical role it's played across the continent but personally, as a Germanic, I'd have had huge difficulty in taking orders from people in Rome who worshiped someone from the Middle East.
