Right-wing columnist–and now Christian apologist–Jonah Goldberg says that President Obama’s statements about the dark side of Christian history are “horse pucky”:
According to Goldberg, the Crusades were defensive wars and the Inquisition was a humanitarian intervention to stop the abuses of secular authorities. He says that the abuses of the medieval Church was due to the fact that it was “medieval” not that it was Christian. I could here insert a blistering rebuttal, but instead I would like to hear what you, dear readers, have to say. This should be good.
