Hey Felipe,
You are right, it is important to recognize the atrocities that have happened like the Crusades. I think you made a great point. Sticking to the historical aspects is very important, while not disregarding the modern-day implications of the Crusades. As Christians, it is easy to get defensive when people criticize the history of the church. As a Catholic, I get attacked for all of the shortcomings of Catholics throughout time.
