Religious misunderstanding?


Two statements heard on television recently:

“If not kept under control, large numbers of moths can desecrate crops.”

“Medieval knights would go on crusade in order to reduce the amount of time they would have to spend in perjury.”


  1. LOL. But what are the correct words?

  2. Marko – the first is probably ‘decimate’, and the second definitely ‘purgatory’.

  3. Could the first have been ‘devastate’?

  4. Martin – Yes, I suppose it could, and there are possibly other words that might fit as well.
