I don't wanna go on a "faith war", but Dan, you could've spared us...
I won't put any arguments in here since I want this to be my personal opinion statement, not a beginning of any flame war, but Dan, what you have done is extremely dishonest. Please, next time try to follow your own advice.
Other than this, very refreshing content and looking forward to your book! :-)
Re: I don't wanna go on a "faith war"
I agree and I apologise for over-simplifying. As with anything on this scale the actual context was way more complex, and I didn't even get into the bloodthirsty tit-for-tat by the many other religious factions over the next century or so. Sadly, no-one comes out of that period of history without blood on their hands.
