Is it not the teaching of the Catholic church that Protestants are heretics? Saying, “We’re no worse than the heretics” is choosing the wrong measuring rod, isn’t it?

“Approving of torture is not a teaching of faith and morals, it is a historically practiced form of judicial inquiry.”

Then the Pope led the church into error by giving his approval? Into a practice that violates the greatest principles Christ set forth?

But since it wasn’t a teaching of faith and morals...well, that’s different. At least it wasn’t as bad as those Protestant heretics.

Protestants are heretics, but both Catholics and Protestants are human. Orthodoxy is not the same as impeccability.

Then the Pope led the church into error by giving his approval [of torture]?

He did? Which one? Did the Church ever teach that torture is an example for the faithful to follow?
