Who burned hundreds of thousands of people at the stake for being witches or heretics?

The Catholics, mostly. Who, if we will recall, are perfectly cool with "theistic evolution."

Who gave plagued infected blankets to Indians who refused to convert?

Nobody. The British gave plague infected blankets to the Indians because these tribes were supporting the French against the British. A nasty rotten thing to do, but was a political act.

The list goes on but it’s not a very fun game. We are all sinners, right?

Yes, but some more destructively than others.
