Easy for you to say because you probably are not interacting with Muslims on a daily basis. The Crusades were an unwise attempt to apply the Muslims' own tactics to reconvert those lands -- that is, to do so at the point of the sword. That really worked, didn't it? I work as a missionary in a Muslim-majority country. Because Muslims are my neighbors and my friends and I want to win them to Christ, I avoid that word. The Bible says the cross is offensive and I cannot and will not avoid that term; however, I don't need to use non-biblical terms to bring offense. Just sayin'.

Yes, and they changed their named for at least 2 reasons -- "Crusade" really is offensive to Muslims, and they do a lot of good work in the Muslim world, AND Cru was the common nickname for CCC on most campuses anyway. They would not be the first mission organization to remove obvious references to Christ from their name in order to open doors to closed countries, nor to seek a more up-to-date name. It doesn't mean they have apostatized.

Dear Mike, You have had several requests to explain the source of this satire. Yes, we get that it's satire, but we don't know what it's based on. I have several friends who are godly, faithful, witnessing Cru staff members, and Campus Crusade was positive influence during my own college years, so what gives? Thanks, Jenners
