  • God is with us! Death to the unbelievers!

  • How badass would that be?

  • It'd help Europe quite a lot.

  • I would definatley join. Being a christian myself I would make sure that I only fought to defend other christians and not to kill innocent muslims, but since ISIS is persecuting fellow christians I would feel morally obligated to defend my faith from those who want to destroy it

  • My brothers, I'm a white Spanish and Portuguese descent from Brazil, I'm catholic, I see that our religion is being destroyed, we must take back Constantinople and destroy each commie who stand in our way. God bless us. Deus Vult.

  • deus vult

  • Well it depends, If all conquered states falls under christian rule i wouldn't participate unless its to the people's free will to belief in whatever they want with the exception of islam.

I actually have envisioned a Tenth Crusade for the purpose of fighting ISIL. As this here would be nothing short of an attack on Muslims for no good reason, I'd be strongly against it.
TBR says2015-04-10T10:41:54.3062110-05:00
Just for a moment. What exactly has ISIL done to you, or us?
dbushwacker says2015-04-10T10:53:58.9423385-05:00
You wouldn't really be getting paid Yama, you'd be making a long term investment. If you win, then you might get a high political position in the new government order, you'd be paid for holding office and the land that you conquer would be yours. You lose, then you die, or get ostracized by your own people.
dbushwacker says2015-04-10T10:56:30.8533540-05:00
@TBR except slaughter human kind and uproot a semi-democratic government that we have put in place after years of brutal middle-eastern warfare that people have spent their lives creating and defending. Not much.
Vox_Veritas says2015-04-10T10:56:59.4515593-05:00
If we never dealt with a foreign threat until it arrived at our front door, we'd be screwed after Nazi Germany won WWII. ISIL has made threats to attack the United States, to put a mosque on the Vatican (that is, destroy the Roman Catholic Church), and other things. If they were to ever to succeed in taking control of the Middle East, we'd all be screwed. Not only that, but obviously they have committed mass atrocities against Iraqi and Syrian people. They're hurting others and something needs to be done about them. The only real reason to not have such a Crusade is because as things are at the moment, ISIL is losing. Also, were ISIL to regain ground, there's a possibility that the U.S. military would launch a direct offensive against ISIL, ground troops included. Thus, the Crusade in question is not necessary.

I know, I'm just thinking radically, not about ISIL. I'm thinking about opportunity, and reclaiming territory that wasn't rightfully theirs except by brutal conquest - like the Hagia Sophia which was the holiest christian site but then it was converted over into a mosque by the Turks after Constantinople fell and was renamed Istanbul. I don't have nothing against anyone, I'm just thinking originally. :D Just a scenario.

A crusade is not just religious
dbushwacker says2015-04-10T11:20:05.9159269-05:00
I know, its an opportunity. :D And not much unlike we did with Israel if you think about it. *shrugs*
FantumHeist says2015-04-10T11:28:40.2242500-05:00
Is the crusade religious?
Bolas says2015-04-10T11:29:49.0657261-05:00
Honestly, if another crusade happens, in this scenario, wouldn't the Christians just lose again like usual. Maybe I'm not i interpreting everything to the fullest extent but, the Christians only won like one Crusade.
dbushwacker says2015-04-10T11:30:01.9354786-05:00
None of the Crusades were purely religious, there will be religious people yes, but opportunity is the key word.
dbushwacker says2015-04-10T11:30:30.6701260-05:00
The Israelis won :D
FantumHeist says2015-04-10T11:33:40.0036849-05:00
In the modern era it's not about who has the most faith in god but who has the most faith in they're M4A1 rifle
dbushwacker says2015-04-10T12:14:06.8470623-05:00
Exactly, and last time I check we had a lot of those. The only problem with a crusade is public opinion, if you don't get enough people support you won't get government support, and if there's no government support then there's no weapons. Israel proves that the middle east is in decline, the whole region is like a "sick man" and it's military is no longer a well oiled horde, they have divided and unless they all get behind Iran then I doub they could withstand a modern crusade
FantumHeist says2015-04-10T12:16:29.6330680-05:00
Nice to see a person of logic
dbushwacker says2015-04-10T12:18:11.7369433-05:00
I've always been logical, I just seem illogical cause I'm radical :P
FantumHeist says2015-04-10T12:26:11.3302813-05:00
Thank god the Pope has no real power in government anymore because if he did and he had a nuclear bomb he would nuke the middle east and his excuse would be that it was the hand of god whom smited the heretics
Bolas says2015-04-10T12:27:28.0652056-05:00
Yes, you are correct FantumHeist
dbushwacker says2015-04-10T12:55:30.8672434-05:00
XD lol
dbushwacker says2015-04-10T13:39:16.8895420-05:00
So Fantum, wanna change your vote now. :D

"Depends. How much would I be paid?'' The winner gets everything.
An-annoying-American says2015-04-16T07:08:36.6552080-05:00
Hell Yeah!!!!
emporer1 says2015-05-25T00:16:09.2146580-05:00
How about a a religious coalition Crusade of combined forces of Christians, Muslims, Jews, etc. Against ISIS. That I would join. Religions vs evil terrorist scum who think they are a religion. We all know that ISIS is not true Muslims. Their beliefs differ in many ways.

It also depends on how much loot we are given
