that they are morally superior to their predecessors.
Oh, yeah? I challenge those assumptions.
WHEN VOICES FROM
the past speak people don’t listen. They should. But it’s when those voices don’t speak that we should be listening the loudest.
‘WE’ CANNOT CLAIM
to be superior to history. Not when recently we had the Holy Inquisition and countless atrocities of various ‘civilised’ empires; or today the mercies of Islam (so a few ragheads are stringing cordtex around the necks of infidels and blowing their heads off*, big deal!)(Boys will be boys, no?).

The pope’s representative seemed untroubled by the massacre when he wrote to his master, Innocent III, that “neither age, nor sex, nor status had been spared.” In fact, a popular account said that Arnald-Amaury, the pope’s legate, was asked at the height of the butchery how the killers should distinguish Catholic from heretic. He was said to have replied.“Kill them all; God will recognize his own.” Although this cannot be verified, it indicates how contemporaries felt about the event.

You are? Hold me tight …
