Sooner or later, any discussion of apologetics with Fundamentalists will address the Inquisition.
To non-Catholics it is a scandal; to Catholics, an embarrassment; to both, a confusion.
It is a handy stick for Catholic-bashing, simply because most Catholics seem at a loss for a sensible reply.
Thinking that Fundamentalists might have a point in their attacks on the Inquisition, Catholics tend to be defensive. This is the wrong attitude; rather, we should learn what really happened, understand events in light of the times, and then explain to anti-Catholics why the sorry tale does not prove what they think it proves.
This tract will set the record straight.
