    SSPX | Defense of the Inquisition

    Defense of the Inquisition
    By J.C. Dupuis, SSPX


    The alleged horrors of the Inquisition generally come at the head of the list of the arguments of the enemies of the Church. Voltaire spoke of "that bloody tribunal, that dreadful memorial to monkish power." The black legend of the Inquisition has impregnated our minds to a point where, today, the majority of Catholics are incapable of defending this phase of the history of the Church. At best, they justify it by invoking the mores of the period which were so much more barbarous than those of our "enlightened" era. More often, they join the chorus of the anticlericals to attack the tribunal of the Holy Office.

    It begs the question:what would have happened if the inquisition never took place?
    The Marranos,or Sephardic Jews,were ingratiating themselves across the Iberian peninsula.Some worked their way up into influential circles,and some kept to themselves multiplying their numbers,a state within a state if you will.The Catholic Church and various states rooted these foreigners out.The measures taken by the inquisition may seem extreme to a modern American,but I believe the latter is finally coming to the realization that the U.S. is actually finding itself in a similar position as Spain and other European nations have in the past.
