I’m not ignorant because I’m not catholic. I’m Protestant.

In my, granted, limited experience Protestants are by and large ignorant of the history of the Church and of the Holy Scripture.

What does your link say about the number of the "victims" of the Holy Inquisition? You previously said "millions"; where do I look on that site to find a corroboration of this?

The church reinforced the state and [vice-versa]

Well, yes. When the state was Catholic the Catholic Church supported it, naturally. We even support states that are not Catholic, all we ask is that the state upholds the Natural Law. But the Church does not interfere in the affairs of the state otherwise. For example, if the Spanish King decides that non-Catholics in the kingdom of Spain are ipso facto traitors, that is his prerogative to make such a law. It is however, the prerogative of the Church to decide who is and who is not Catholic. This is what the Holy Inquisition did, and continues to do (it is now called Office of the Doctrines of the Faith). In my opinion, it is long overdue that Rome establish a permanent office of the Inquisitor in the United States and not deal with the pederast priests and sundry "Catholics" of Pelosi mold piecemeal.

Moreover, while active homosexuality and disobedience to the episcopacy are sins that are grounds of excommunication, molestation of minors is also a crime in the United States and I fully support that the Church hand over the child molesters she discovers in her midst, to the District Attorney offices in the United States for civil prosecution.
