“those were PROTESTANTS fleeing PROTESTANTS”
The difference is that I know of no Protestants anywhere advocating and justifying such crimes done in the name of Christ, whether by Protestants or Catholics. No one here is justifying torturing people for disagreeing with their theology, except you. To justify your theology, which begins with the a priori premise that the Catholic Church can do no wrong, you must therefore either deny that official representatives of the Church ever did such deeds. Or you must justify that such deeds are lawful and approved by God. And you have chosen the latter.
Jesus prophesied about people like those Catholics who murdered Tyndale:
They will put you out of the synagogues; yes, the time is coming that whoever kills you will think that he offers God service.
I missed where Jesus or the apostles prophesied of the day when His disciples would one day rise up have have heretics (or so you say) burned at the stake. Would you kindly point me to that passage of scripture?
“Not all Catholics did either. And?”
Not all Catholics have a religious view that allows them to nonchalantly discuss burning men alive for disagreeing with their theology. And not all go posting on public forums that there is nothing wrong with this.
But you do.
Like the religious leaders who killed the prophets, the followers of Christ, and Christ Himself.
You’re position is on par with a KKK member telling black people that their ancestors getting lynched and their women being raped was fine because they had it coming. The only difference is that you advocate such a position in the name of Jesus.
The beliefs you advocate do not belong on a conservative forum. This forum is for people who believe in freedom of religion, not coercing people with the threat of torture.
You actually justified burning people alive for disagreeing with your theology. Correct me if I’m wrong. I don’t want to accept that anyone on this forum could hold such a belief.
You seem to be saying the men who did this did nothing wrong.
I find it hard to believe my own eyes. I must go back and check if that really did happen, here on a conservative, pro-Christian forum. Yes, indeed it did:
“Actually he was executed for his heresy...” in #185.
Wait. No. There are actually two of you advocating this:
“Tyndale...was condemned because his translation was heretical...” in #48.
Did the founders of this country get the first amendment wrong? Do we need to get enough Catholics in office to amend and correct it to reflect that the Roman Catholic Church is the only state-sanctioned religion? Do we need to also make an exception for the “cruel and unusual punishment” in cases of “heresy” against the Holy Roman Empire?
Is this part of the Catholic “tradition” you’ve been boldly proclaiming, that goes all the way back to Christ and the apostles?
It’s strange, I never read of Christ or the apostles doing such things. Reminds me more of modern-day Islamic terrorism.
