KRISTI WATTS (co-host): Terrel says, "I have a chess set with men based on the Crusades. We've had the set in our house for over 15 years. My wife now says we should have nothing 'Muslim' in our house. I say that it's just a chess set and is OK. What are your thoughts?"
ROBERTSON: Well, I mean, if it's the Crusade, the Crusaders are killing the Muslims. [laughs] So what's the big deal?
ROBERTSON: I -- you know, nothing says you can't have something Muslim in your house. You're not worshipping Allah. This is a clash that took place. Crusaders went to reclaim the holy places from the infidels, from the Muslims that had taken them over. So, I mean, that's historic. I don't see anything wrong with that. All right.
