Word Smith: Crusade

Atrocities of the first crusades

Hang head in shame

Rape, plunder, murder

Peter the Hermit preaching mercy to the Crusaders who ignored him

All in the name of the Church

Similar to the removal of offensive terms today, perhaps it is time to eliminate the word Crusade and the mascot, Crusader, from our religious schools. It’s time to mend, not revel in the bloody past.
