i’m having problems with the fact that the church says she never changes her moral teachings.
how does that exaplin launching crusades, accepting slavery for the longest time and the burning of heretics?
i know what most of you will say, that people are sinful and they carry this out. but when said person is the pope and they’re doing it, then other people start ot think it’s ok. especialy if they are issuing papal bulls regarding these subjects.
i know, these issues may not be as bad as some make them out to be but in a fully christianized nation, they shouldn’t have happened at all. it made us no different from anyone else.
what was the point of owning nonchristian slaves, for example, and starting wars with muslims and jews. or all the enslavement that happened in the new world, it was sanctioned at first and then condemned later on. all of this just to try to get people to convert.
at the time all of it was moral and justifiable, now it isn’t.
or am i missing something here?
