****.

I enjoyed this book very well. It was enlightening, well written and informative. Having been raised a Catholic and abandoned it soon after leaving home, began to think that it mattered little what church you were a member of as any cult or club all they want is paying members.
The forcing of thier beliefs on the general population via punishment, fines,etc. all while preaching God's love is rediculous.
I then read The Antichrist (Neitzsche) and that book even added to my thoughts concerning christianity in general. What a scam in making one feel that they "need" a higher power to feel good about themselves.

As far as I am concerned and based on what I already read about concerning this topic, the inquisition is one of the darkest, barbarious, outrageous events in the history of the Catholic Church. The Catholic Church claimed to be the authorized embassador of God on Earth however I doubt that may be true. God will never force us to be loyal to him. God will never imposed on us obedience. By means of the Inquisition, the Catholic Church imposed and forced loyalty not to God but to the papacy and in my opinion and based on what I have already studied concerning the papacy, the papacy is a loyal servent to satan, the biggest enemy of Jesus and mankind.
