Beware the Christian Crusader

Like those that went before them, we should be wary of Christians who suggest they fight on our behalf.

From page 212 of my copy of Moby Dick:

For even the high lifted and chivalric Crusaders of old times were not content to traverse two thousand miles of land to fight for their holy sepulchre, without committing burglaries, picking pockets, and gaining other pious perquisites by the way.
