So if I use a live electrical wire to shock and kill someone... Can I blame Benjamin Franklin?

It's just implied. The other four directly caused their shite.

Anyway, C. The crusades sucked but that's over now. Mohammed's teachings are still being used to kill people today.

So, again, what action or word of Christ spawned man to hold inquisition in Spain?
His death and resurrection created the Church. The Church then did these things.

No Jesus, no Church.
No Church, no Spanish Inquisition

No, I think you missed all points referenced by me claiming I am a car and represent cars.

What im trying to say is, you cant blame someone who did something very good for your actions just because they are related to what the original person did.

For what?

You think Franklin discovered electricity?

I guess the joke in Waterboy just whiffed over your head.

Actually the Spanish Inquisition was never official sanctioned by the Church in Rome.

OK.

I'd wager 9-11 was never discussed in Mecca, either.

So why have Adolf Hitler and not his Mother and Father?

His parents had sex
No Sex, No Hitler
No Hitler, No Holocaust

You see how stupid this is?

So you get my point as to how ridiculous blaming a man who preached peace and love for the evil his "followers" did hundreds and hundreds of years later?

assigning "blame" is not the question presented in the OP. I "blame" the men who commit these acts, not their idol.

No, the church didn't do those things. Man did those things under religion which man came up with as a means of controlling his fellow man.

Christ introduced the church, located in the heart of Man, where he takes up residence if man allows Him to. Man instead put God in buildings and hierarchy, the same religionists he spoke against with the Pharisees.

Christ even warned of those who would come in His name and yet represented Him not, in word or deed. You can't place blame on someone for having their words and actions distorted, ignored, or manipulated to infer it is what they desire. That isn't fair to Christ, the truth, and it wouldn't be fair to you either.

You are confusing the actions of those He came to save from themselves from Christ Himself. That's like blaming water for someone drowning as a result of a man holding another man's head under water.

Man IS THE PROBLEM.


Awesome!

Who is blaming?

If you tell a guy to love everyone...and he understands that as "rape children", and acts accordingly...

It isn't your fault he did that, but your actions led to it.

Not to mention a lot of the crap that's going on in the Balkans and the ME today. I made my WW1 comment with tongue in cheek. WW1 also helped pave the way for the Bolsheviks and laid the foundation for the clusterfrick that is now known as the United Nations.
