I read your other link<quoted text>
As expected you closed your eyes and immeidiately went for something that does not respond to the points in the article of which you did not read. However your second link does have gross exaggerations. However the BBC run by the Protestant state has found it necessaryt to admit exaggerations. Protestants burned far more witches. The slaughter of Jews as a program decreed by the Popes is nonsense. You want to pretend that the whole world was ruled by the Church. Remain clueless. Meanwhile secualar and religious schoalars are seeing the truth with meticulous records. Now your hero Martin Luther was another story. The Jews and their lies his book was used often by Joseph Goebels and sorry to burst your bubble again but the Church was a huge thorn in Hitlers side. So the Hitlers Pope people are utterly clueless. If you want to respond to a specific piece then do so dont just rattle off a list of general babblings in typical protestant fashion. I offered historical facts of decrees issued. And by the way John Paul II apologized for wrongs that were committed by members of the church. He did not decry the inquistions of which you are totally ignorant about.
Reality: On November 6, 1994, the London BBC aired an amazing testimony to the falsity of these claims in a documentary titled "The Myth of the Spanish Inquisition." In it, historians admitted that "this image is false. It is a distortion disseminated 400 years ago and accepted ever since. Each case that came before the Spanish Inquisition in its 300-year history had its own file." Now, those files are being gathered together and studied properly for the first time. Prof. Henry Kamen, an expert in the field, admitted candidly that the files are detailed, exhaustive, and bring to light a very different version of the Spanish Inquisition.
Here is another link for you to ignore with facts. I know you hate those.
And if you noticed that was a,JEWISH link I gave ..no Protestant
You cannot force people to be Catholics and punish them for not being sincere ...Jesus,Saud preach ..WALK AWAY if they do not believe .
NOTHING OF FORCING BELIEF ....EVER ..
Obviously the JEWS see,the whole thing differently than the Catholics ..
Not sure they felt it benign .
And things,done by Catholic Monarchs the Church kept in power and approved of??
Every one should have been excommunicated ..
Burning of witches was bad too.
.it's,you people saying ..
Well this one did something bad too.
The POPES started this ...hunt for heresy and THEIR APPROVAL OF JEWUSH BELIEF ..who gave them that right .NOT GOD ..
that's,why I believe your Church strayed way off the path of 're APOSTLES ...
confiscating synagogues and giving to the CHURCH Z..JEWISH property ..???
Would Peter approve of ONE person dying in God's name ...would Jesus ..
