BBC noted in 2004:
Professor Borromeo [author of a Vatican study on medieval abuses] says for example that for 125,000 trials of suspected heretics in Spain, less than 2% were executed.
2% of 125,000 is 2,500.
Postscript: More than half of the world’s oil is located in the Middle East. And so it may not be just a coincidence that religious war is being stirred up by the powers-that-be, and we’re playing all sides.
