they are now doing what Christianity used to do in the Middle Ages, in much more dangerous circumstances because now there are much more terrible weapons than the Crusaders, for example, ever had.
This is quite right, of course, but, as I was reading it, the thought occurred to me the the absence of nuclear weapons in the 11th century did not prevent the crusaders from going nuclear on the people of Jerusalem when they invaded that city. They slaughtered the entire population, numbering tens of thousands. Bloody crusaders.
