I was talking with a member of parliament the other day and he was working on getting a motion passed to have the government of Canada apologize for the damage the Christians did in the Crusades. I reminded him of a few facts; number one, the Christians never went to fight until the Muslims were almost at Constantinople and the Eastern Pope asked for help and number two, Canada wasn’t a country till over 600 years after the Crusades were over so why should we apologize.
He looked at me like I was a total fool and said, “You don’t understand”, then turned and walked away.
I realized then that I do understand. I understand that Ottawa does something to destroy every bit of common sense that these legislators have when they first go there and that we have to fight continously to keep them from bankrupting us all with their silliness.
