Now, you've got it ;-)
P.S. As for the Inquisitions, the worst injustices and most murders
committed were done by the Inquisitions set up by the Protestants. Many
people don't realize it, but the Protestants had their own inquisitions
that were 100 times worse than the excesses of those that were carried out
by Catholics. But, an injustice is still and injustice no matter who
carries it out. However, while the Catholic Church has apologized for
serious injustices carried out in it's name over the centuries, not a
single Protestant, Jewish or Islamic leader has done the same.
