    These were not true Christians, they were counterfeit Christians.

    True Christians don't go to war.

    Jesus said that his true followers could be readily identified by their self-sacrificing love for one another. Is that true of the religions of Christendom when the nations go to war? The Bible says that Christ’s disciples would be no part of the world, and it warns that whoever wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God; but the churches of Christendom and their members are deeply involved in the political affairs of the nations.

    Calling the Taiping Rebellion a Christian war is stretching a point. One deluded prophet starts a cult that turns into a rebellion? It's a bit like calling Jim Jones a Christian, don't you think?

    Why can't we all just agree that religion is bad and has been the cause of most wars.

    War is a punishment for the sins of humanity. However, the rosary is an excellent weapon in the fight against war, worldliness and other evil things.
