So far two of the most beloved anti-papist sentiments have not been broached, and I'd like to thank ya'll from the bottom of my heart.

https://christianity.stackexchange.com/search?q=inquisition

Not to jinx the thing, but let's keep it up!

This might be less of a meta question and more of a general question, but I think it only applies to the people who check out stuff here. What brought about the change of heart is this all just settled stuff that no one cares about anymore?

God love ya'll

  • Don't forget that this site is only a month old...give it time, the questions will come. And most likely be promptly closed. :P Commented Sep 21, 2011 at 18:48
  • I think we have more knowledgeable people (i.e. hackers) here than on the average internet forum, and the SE model is excellent at keeping low-quality content out. Commented Sep 21, 2011 at 22:19

Most likely because this is Christianity.SE, and not Anti-Catholicism.SE. There's really not much in the way of constructive questions that could be asked on those subjects, IMO.

I guess in my mind, those items were in the past. They've all been reconciled.

If the Catholic church were still ex-communicating anyone who said that the Earth isn't the center of the universe, there'd probably be more questions.

It sounds like currently, the issue is just kind of ignored.

If I could think of something to say about one of those topics which would actually be a sensible, answerable question, believe me I'd ask it. But since anything I'd write about either would be merely a rant, and I'm trying to cut back on ranting in general (and ranting here in particular), I'm avoiding the subjects.
