I don't think any government prosecuting an Inquisition can be called "secular".


The Spanish and the Portuguese weren't really that concerned about whether the recently converted Jews and Muslim (Mahommedan back in the day, or Moor) was properly Catholic so much as a sustained charge of heresy or apostasty meant that the accused lands and money could be seized, and the Jews were considered to be filthy rich by many at the time with ill gotten money earned by cheating good christians.

Today's entree from the Serendipity menu: I found this this morning.

I give you ... Batman & Jesus, the movie.

As the filmmaker himself clumsily explains in the films' final moments, the purpose of the picture is to cast a light on the arbitrary acceptance of Jesus's exploits as liturgical truth by comparing it to the fierce protection that passionate fans will place on select stories of one of pop culture's greatest fictional creations, The Dark Knight.

The religion vs people-in-charge-of-it distinction doesn't matter. It's the people who run it who influence political policy. So it's apples to apples here.

Anyway, here's at least one nice list someone made.


If all of the small acts of kindness/good the church has performed or inspired on a daily basis the world over were listed, it's influence on the ethics and morality we all, at least the most of us, - atheist and Christian alike - unthinkingly follow in our daily lives, the balance sheet would sit massively in its favour as a force for good, historically and now.

We are all the products of the churches legacy. That we understand the difference between right and wrong at all is down to the church. The church has bought us the luxury of indulging in atheist belief without having to pay the price for it's consequences ....... yet.

I don't understand your last sentence, peter. What do you mean by luxury? What are the consequences; and what price will be paid?
