-and the "history" of the Catholic church DOES check out?
some *non-existent* history:
Crusades - What were the Crusades?
The Crusades were a series of Holy Wars launched by the Christian states of Europe against the Saracens who were Muslims. The term 'Saracen' was the word used to describe a Moslem during the time of Crusades. Crusades started in 1095 when Pope Claremont preached the First Crusade at the meeting of the Council of Claremont. The preaching of the pope led to many thousands of Medieval people immediately affixing the cross to their garments - the name Crusade given to the Holy Wars came from old French word 'crois' meaning 'cross'.

United States "History" vs. Native American History.
U.S. "History" has this country being blessed by God and founded on Godly principles.
Native American history, has White Europeans as terrorists.
Same with True Christianity as versus Catholicism.
Catholics - being the aggressors, "wrote" the history.
