You see...this is a straw man argument because no one was ever burned (all executions were the privy of state jurisdiction btw) for the purposes of mind control and in fact burning was a very very rare event indeed in relation to matters of the defense of the faith and realm.What we have here is a cunning use of language to support a fallacious position.

1. The purpose of the inquisitions was never stated as "mind control" but in reality it translated as such. If all people in a given society have to profess Roman Catholicism or die as vile criminals that's simply mind control. It makes a mockery of faith being an inner conviction of the mind and soul.

2. While numbers have been exaggerated by some authors, to say that burnings were a very rare event is simply to ignore history. And having recourse to the subtle cavil that they occured under the jurisdiction of the state is also disingenuous, as if the Church, powerful as she was back then, couldn't have violently protested against such proceedings if she were against them. I live in a country that executed religious dissenters up until the 19th century. Burning people alive because they dissent from the teachings of Rome is not "defending the faith," it's a repugnant act of tyranny and ignorance.

Quote:I do find it interesting that you hold the capital punishment of sins against the body to a higher order of physical justice than sins or attacks on the Faith and the society emboldened by such Faith.

You can't force anyone to believe. To do so is the characteristic of tyrants and cult leaders. Liberty of conscience is a precious thing that shouldn't be taken for granted.
