St. James,
Since Speed has been blocked I will answer your questions:
The things you mentioned ie the Crusades and castration, were not God's idea. Things such as that come about because we live in a fallen world filled with evil, and Mankind sometimes chooses to sin. Why doesn't God intervene? Rather than intervene God uses man's sinful choices usually to teach us and bring us closer to him. (Besides, if He intervened in every evil He would become a dictorial god which he is not.) After all, He did give mankind freewill and we can use that freewill for evil, or to serve Him.
