You can't just discount the fact that people believed that it was God's will to commit these atrocities. Whether they were manipulated by the people in power or not, they still acted under the belief that they were fulfilling their God's will, but somehow that's not a religious motivation to you? Just because there were political motives doesn't mean that religion had nothing to do with it; when you live in a theocracy your political motivations are based on your religion.
I don't know what argument I could possibly raise to change the mind of a person who believes that a holy war has absolutely nothing to do with religion.
Don't tell me about loving thy neighbor when the God of the Bible condones slavery, including selling your own daughter as a sex slave (Exodus 21:1-11), child abuse (Judges 11:29-40 and Isaiah 13:16), and bashing babies against rocks (Hosea 13:16 & Psalms 137:9). Tell me how these constitute loving thy neighbor?

>I honestly doubt that the crusades were motivated by anything truly to do with the religion

perhaps their prejudices that drove them to commit genocide were influenced by their barbaric, irrefutable, and unquestionable holy book.

Too bad their holy book says to love thy neighbor and not to kill. Using the "eye for an eye" concept, the politically motivated leaders of their movement twisted the words based on the years and years of the muslims invading their lands and slaughtering their families. Heartbroken, angry men abandoned the basic principles of their faith to exact revenge on another group who had invaded them previously for other politically motivated reasons. The fight was never about religion, but about politics, power, and revenge.

I mean.... thousands of men were promised that their sins would be forgiven and that they had a free pass into heaven if they participated sooo..... for everyone BUT the one or two people that planned it, it was religiously motivated

I didn't read #71 or #70 but I blame the Christian Crusades on greed and the want for more land. I can't say for sure but I also think the Christian Crusades had another fallacy: They believed that because their cause was morally right they were free to do immoral things. The leaders used the Bible as an excuse, nothing more.
#71 - anon (08/29/2015) [-]
Well, back then politics and religion went hand in hand. Kings were only kings because of "divine right" so helping out in the crusades made your rule seem more legitimate and all the loot and territory weren't a small part of it either since they were sometimes launched when things weren't going too good. So, they did really believe but mainly because it legitimized their authority and you wanted to stay on the church's good side because getting excommunicated made it so you lost your right to rule and killing you wasn't considered a sin.

however the problem is that they justify their actions with their religion, or SAY they are doing so in the name of their religion, so even if for example the pope were to say Execute people X because they defy god, while he really wanted to kill them for Y reason, it doesn't change the fact that he is justifying/encouraging the action in the name of the religion, and the people who will perform the action actually do believe it.

Look at the Waffen SS all of them Had to be catholic/christian and on their belts it said Gott Mit Uns (God is with us) and when ordered to they believed they were completely justified in what they did.
