During Mary’s reign heretics were executed. During Henry VIII’s and Elizabeth I’s reign (and others’ reigns) Catholics were martyred for holding to the only faith anyone in their homeland had ever known for nearly a thousand years.

Why was the government under Mary executing heretics?

Thank God I live in the US, where I don’t have to worry about fanatics on either side trying to burn me at the stake.

One man's heretic is anothers martyr. Interesting to see the shade of Torquemada still lurking in the shadows.
