How utterly delightful that the Vatican sees fit to condemn women to a special form of punishment.

The victim’s limbs were tied to the spokes and the wheel itself was slowly revolved. Through the openings between the spokes, the torturer usually hit the victim with an iron hammer that could easily break the victim’s bones. -Medieval Times & Castles

I wonder what devilish delights in hell await those priests and their masters who have seen fit to bugger little boys and then cover up the crimes?

Just more reasons for keeping the flock ignorant and uneducated, whether it be Roman Catholicism or Islam, or any other faith.
