The Church banned UNAPPROVED and FAULTY translations of the scriptures.<quoted text>
More spin and denial. Specifically...
"... even the Bible was once on the blacklist. Translations of the holy book ended up on the bonfires along with other ``heretical'' works because the Church, whose official language was Latin, was suspicious of allowing the faithful access to sacred texts without ecclesiastical guidance."
We've know all the excuses.
By refusing to provide official translations, the RCC was very effective in banning the Bible from 99.5% of humanity.
Then came the terrible Reformation, with things like human rights and democracy. It's been downhill ever since.
Forgive those who went against the RCC and ultimately gave you the right to vote.
Still wetting your pants because you think you've hit the jackpot.(lol)! This guy must know you personally, he described you to a tee!
