I'm a Catholic, and I've always looked back fondly on the Crusades. I think they're one of the best examples of a just war. Now, 650 years after the last Crusade, it looks like Christendom might need another one.
Do you think it's a good idea for the Catholic Church to launch a Crusade against ISIS, requesting that all good Christians give ten percent of their money towards the creation of a Papal army to fight the Islamic State? Would you join up, if you felt the holy call?

The first move of such a crusade should be to arrest and guillotine the traitors in the West who are arming and enabling Islamic terrorism. That would be the entire ruling elite, both behind the scenes and those who are in front of the curtain.
The next move should be to take out the Saudis, who are funding it.
Then and only then would military action against the likes of ISIL be successful.
Such action should be Biblical, in terms of a scorched-earth no-prisoners no-mercy policy. These people understand only pain, terror and death. Give it to them in abundance, to ensure that the message is understood.
As soldier said after an engagement: "They came willing to be martyred for Allah. We accommodated them."3
