@Kenjiro M. Yoshimori Always remind people who mention the "errors" of the Crusades, that several were to stop Muslim invasions of Europe.

Liberals and Progressives, and Protestants always bring up the Catholic Church past history of the Inquisition, where some people were executed or burned as heretics. And they bring up the errors of the Crusades, and the so called evil ways of the Spanish Conquistadores against the Incas and Aztecs. They even bring up how they think wrong of the Jesuit missionaries coming to bring the CAtholic Faith to Japan and India. In my first year of secondary(H.S.) in a Jesuit institution in Japan we were lectured how bad the Spanish and Portuguese Jesuits were to bring the Faith to Japan.....these were 3 Japanese old Jesuit priests in 2008-09 bad remarking about the historic apostolates of their own members, and giving slurs about the Church of that time. But I never hear Islam complained about for doing this to Christians. Like it is fine to pass bad judgements on the Catholic Church, but a crime to question the history or actions of other religions. Protestants did their share of Inquisition torture and burning too....but everyone likes to forget that!

Slight correction, the Church did not execute people during the Inquisition. The very few people who may have been executed were done so under civil authorities. In fact criminals of the time would utter blasphemies in order to fall under the Church’s system so as to avoid being subjected to the often unjust actions of civil authorities.
Sounds like those old Jesuits committed very grave sins …More

Appologies to you Louis IX, I forgot that the Catholic Church did not execute people under their own authority, but handed them over to the State. And yes, heretics etc. in State prisons did what they could to get into Catholic prisons under the Inquisition because they were treated more humanly. And yes, the 3 elderly Jesuit professors in my Tokyo highschool were each not supporting of the Church either at the time of the great missionary work in the 16th centuries of the Jesuits, or even now. They were against Benedict XVI. But I think maybe God punishes Jesuits for their disloyal comments and disrespect for a great period of history and a good pope like Benedict XVI, because there are not many Jesuits left now in Japan, or Franciscans, Dominicans, or any others...since 1960's.
