Smitty your right that some of the crusades were to capture the Holy Land back but there were some crusaders who went to gain wealth like the Knight Templars who didn't really care about protecting pilgrims or getting the Holy Land back.

Smitty there are over 800 hundred verses in the bible which talk about muder and cruelty. So don't say that the bible is peaceful because it is not.
