dIt’s hard to get worked up about Mormons when it’s Catholics who slaughtered Protestants by the millions...

OK. I'll bite. Which millions?

From the Thirty Years' War. And things like the St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre. We've papered over these differences in the interest of letting bygones be bygones, but reality is that the Catholic Church is relatively tolerant today only because it was fought to a standstill by an alliance of Protestant kings.

If you’re interested, Queen Margot, a French production that covers the events of the St. Bartholomew’s Day Massacre, is available on DVD. I believe it stars Isabelle Adjani and Vincent Perez.
