I go on a message board for a Christian singer I like and we were discussing the protestant Church that is allowing gays to get married. Needless to say they were upset about this and I used this opportunity to point out that this is why the Catholic Church is the one true Church. The Church will never waiver on faith and moral issues.
So someone threw the Spanish Inquistions thing in my face implying that the Church is evil because of that. Now I am not familiar about what the inquistions are or were but my first thought was to ask this person if he thinks the US is an evil country because it was once OK to own slaves. To me, trying to throw past sins into the frey is like saying the US is evil because we allowed slavery. But I wanted to have all the facts and maybe some better arguments to make before I posted.
Anyone have any ideas?
