Christian faith is steeped in blood

CHRISTIANITY may have been founded by a peace-loving, anti-authoritarian ascetic, but he carried with him the punitive personal code created by Moses.

When Christian Crusaders assaulted the Middle East they again showed they could be as violent as any conquering army.

The religion Christ founded became (and remains) a faith steeped in blood.
