    No, I'm just saying that certain things cannot be taken seriously.

    There are several good reasons for the crusades (other than "spreading our faith or other nonsense), like control of the mediterranean trade (that's why they took Constantinople) which was a massive source of wealth, and the wealth of the holy land alone was substantial. Also, there was the fear of Turks and Saracens becoming a threat.
