Still the same old Vlad I see, lol. Their persecution wasn’t always at the hands of the Catholic Church but it was invariably at the hands of a State Church. Appreciate that and maybe the claws won’t be coming out quite so often. No church is perfect, not even yours. A religion assuming the trappings and authority of a nation-state does create problems. History shows us this. So does the Bible.

Actually it would invariably be at the hands of the state if anything.

“No church is perfect, not even yours.”

The Church is without spot of wrinkle in all that matters - if you believe Jesus. The people in it? Far less than perfect.
