The New Cathars

On 22 July 1209, during the Albigensian Crusade, the little French town of Beziers was reported to have given sanctuary to Cathar heretics. A Catholic army attacked the town and slaughtered the populace. When asked how to distinguish between the heretic Cathars and loyal Catholics, it is reported that the reply was, “Kill them all and let God sort them out.” Religious civil wars are the most vicious of all civil wars, and the war raging now in the Middle East is a religious civil war. We must not take sides, we must not decide who wins and who loses. We must kill them all and let God sort them out.

Who then are the Cathars
On whose side do we fight
The Sunni or the Shia
Which one the shining knight
Who do we arm and favor
Whose horse now do we ride
When Muslim knights come riding
A horse called Genocide
Just let them kill each other
Let one in triumph shout
Then kill in turn the victors
And let God sort them out
