Actually the First Crusade was extremely successful the later Crusades of which truly you can only mention the 2nd and 3rd again were relatively successful every other after that of course were either not real crusades or were hampered by the disobedience and unfaithfulness of those in charge of them.

The examples you give are red herrings and ridiculous devoid of any serious discussion or consideration. 

The Crusades were not successful in any way, shape, manner or form.  They were fine for what they were at the time.  But to suggest that we need a modern incarnation is ludicrous and suggests a severe myopia in addition to far too much time spent playing World of Warcraft. 

So the recovery of the Iberian peninsula which is better known in history as the "Reconquista" tell me what part of the World of Warcraft was that? Also the 200 years for which the Kingdom of Jerusalem stood under Christian hands, yes please tell me what part of the end of the world... of warcraft was that?

I don't know.  I've never played World of Warcraft.  You're the video game geek.  Q.E.D.

Do try to pay attention.  :bronxcheer:

Video footage of a convert from Islam to Christianity being murdered by Muslims has been shown on Egyptian TV, according to the Barnabas Fund.

The graphic incident, which is reported to have taken place in Tunisia, was aired on a program called Egypt Today.

The footage shows a young man being held down by masked men with a knife to his throat. One man chants a number of Muslim prayers in Arabic, mostly condemning Christianity. The man holding the knife to the Christian convert’s throat begins to cut, slowly severing the head amid cries of “Allahu Akbar” (“god is great”).


Council of Clermont

Pope Urban II

Let those who have been accustomed unjustly to wage private warfare against the faithful now go against the infidels and end with victory this war which should have been begun long ago. Let those who for a long time, have been robbers, now become knights. Let those who have been fighting against their brothers and relatives now fight in a proper way against the barbarians. Let those who have been serving as mercenaries for small pay now obtain the eternal reward. Let those who have been wearing themselves out in both body and soul now work for a double honor.

Get a life.

Seriously.

Imagine if Pope B16 called Catholics for a crusade how many would respond.

Maybe a few dozen half-deranged nerds coupled with some romantics who had read Ivanhoe one time too many?

Yes. I think a Crusade would be a grand idea.

Where to begin this Last Crusade? Hmmmm. I've got an idea. How about a Crusade against Modernism and Pessimism?

We can start with Abortion, by the Bishops and the entire Church Militant. Priests for Life need not apply.

Then we can go after porn. Again with all the Bishops and the engaged Church Militant.

Then perhaps we can try and stop Usury.

Hey, we haven't really gotten anywhere near the Modernists yet. Not really.

Then we can run over the gauntlet of Religious Liberty, last thrown up by our own Bishops. Isn't that special?

After that swashbuckling event, perhaps we can tear up Nostra Aetate and try to bring ecumenism back to some kind of rational approach. I don't know, maybe something with an eye towards conversion?

Always good to consider asking for all the Church property stolen by Henry VIII. I think it is about one third of the country known as England.

Still not really getting to the modernists and pessimists, though are we? And that has already been many tall orders filled. Considering they are done.

After the repeal of the First Amendment, perhaps we can insist that America establish Catholicism as the State Religion.

Oh, in my haste and prescription, I had forgotten about banning contraception.

And somewhere along the line, I think it would be a good idea to hold Corpus Christi on Thursday and Ascension Thursday on Thursday, rather than Sunday.

And how about those pesky Revolutionary Italians from the mid to late 19th Century. It would seem a return of the Papal States would be in order along with damages for pain and suffering while the Supreme Pontiff was locked-up in the Vatican with nowhere to go.

And while we are at it, I want my old neighborhood back in Chicago and reparations for the Slaughter of the Cities. And every other Psychological War the boys from the University of Chicago started with their WASP/Jew Alliance against all things Catholic.

Now if we can't muster all that. I suggest we just worry about ourselves and try to survive the current culture. Or is that mold?

Because everything I just mentioned are mere symptoms of the modern mind which is revolutionary and does not accept that there is a Divine Order to all things.

The other short cut, in lieu of a Crusade as you seem to call for, would be to insist that Russia be converted properly.

That was good therapy preparing my laundry list. I see it is Friday. Time for Matins.

Good night and God Bless.

A crusade? Really?

You guys live where? In 12th century England?

Wake up and smell the coffee, people. It's embarrasing. Rome is more likely to canonise the Koran than to ever launch a crusade.

Of course, the former is impossible absolutely, while the latter is only impossible contingently. Circumstances could change, though clearly not in our lifetimes.

Well, you can always watch The Kingdom of Heaven and pretend you're doing God's work by slaying Muslims alive in your fervent imagination.
