Because catholics tainted everything to begin with. They changed the old testament to fit what they felt. This isn't the disciples who were supposed to be influenced by god. it's the kings, popes, and even lower church officials

there are many reasons the crusades started. one was the byzantines were gettin a butt woopin. another was people wanted money. they wanted lands. the pope wanted to extend the churches power. also, some just wanted to fight. lastly, some actually thought they were fightin for God
theres one thing ive always wondered though...about the number of troops who went on the first. by the way some of the persons who wrote of the crusades, i would have to say onehundredthousand went, because with the numbers of people who died in battle, disease, etc, and to reach jerusalem with with anout 20000 people, it only seems that that would by a logical number. does that seem right?
