That's a map of the Mongolian Empire. Are you finally admitting that the CofE courted the Mongols and besides giving Nestorian women in wedlock to Mongol rulers such as Genghiz Khan they actually attempted the ultimate coup with the consecration of Mar Yaballaha III - a Mongolian - who ruled the Church of the East from 1281 until his death in 1318?
Had the Mongols accepted Christianty as its state religion are you telling me the CofE wouldn't have forced its religon onto others throughout the empire? I mean just look at the actions of the CofE bishop, Abdas of Susa who destroyed a Zoroastrian temple and, according to Moffett - who's letter we are all awaiting - disrupted the religous peace in the Persian Empire.
Finally you asked me for evidence to substantiate my guestimate on the 27,000 dead Assyrian children klled due to sanctions over the past 14 years. I not only showed you unbiased and conservative figures by the very same people who administered the sanctions but I also showed my conservative calculations used to derive the 27,000 guestimate.
We would appreciate similar evidence showing 80 million Christians existed over 600 years ago.
Now I am not disputing that there weren't millions, just as you don't dispute that there weren't thousands of Assyrian children killed, I'm just stating that the figure used is too high.
