Sioux Falls Atheists recommends the following books that describe some ugly truths about Christian history. One describes how the Inquisition is the forerunner of the Nazi torture policy, the tortures at Abu Ghraib, the tortures at Guantanamo, and a lot more. It's all part of the same evil philosophy.

Sioux Fall Atheists especially recommends the two history books on the Crusades. Here you have eminent history scholars telling us the dirty truth about the evils of the Crusaders. These were not nice people. They went on the Crusades as much for plunder as for freeing the Middle East of Muslim control. And plunder they did. And killing Muslim children in order to eat them when no other food was available was all in a day's work. As was killing every last person in Jerusalem when they finally conquered the city, every last Muslim, Jew or Christian, who had all been living peacefully together before the Crusaders came along. They were all murdered, every last man, woman, and child, in an ogre that had the Crusaders wading in blood and burning piles of bodies as high as the houses of the city. Really nice guys these Western Civilization Crusaders.

10-29-17 The young man who shook the Catholic Church to its core
Five hundred years ago, a young German monk began the Protestant Reformation, shattering the authority of the Catholic Church. Centuries later, there are signs that the churches have put aside their differences. In an early scene from Shakespeare's play, Hamlet's mother Gertrude begs him not travel to Wittenberg. She believes that her son's studies in a provincial German town on the banks of the River Elbe may be a threat to their security and the Catholicism of his upbringing. She had good reason to be worried. For that is precisely what happened when a monk called Martin Luther engaged in the concentrated study of scripture at the University of Wittenberg. It would lead him to some Biblical beliefs - particularly the doctrine of justification by faith alone - that would transform Luther's understanding of church, God and eternal life. It would also result in him hammering 95 theses - arguments and objections - to the doors of the Schlosskirche, or University church. With each blow, the authority and stability of the Catholic Church was challenged as never before. "He wanted to rediscover Christ," says Heinrich Bedford-Strohm, Germany's most senior Protestant bishop, "and he fought against certain practices of the Church of his time." "And since it was not possible to agree upon these things and to find a way forward to reform the Church, he started something new. And many people went with him," adds the bishop. The anniversary of Luther's protest will be marked in Wittenberg on 31 October, 500 years after he hammered on the University church's doors.
