I was just watching History's Mysteries, and they were discussing whether or not the Catholic Church would issue a formal apology. One historian said NO, because that would admit guilt and they aren't guilty of anything. Another said it would be at least nice to hear them say they are sorry for the loss of so many lives... And yet another said, No because no one that was killed is here to hear it anyways...
I guess I'm on the fence. Are they at fault? Yes and No. Not everything done during the Inquisition was due because of the direction or even okay of the Church. On the other hand, it would be nice to hear an apology for the loss of life - someone should take responsibility even all these years later... And yet, if there is a third hand here, it says that No one today is really going to care, it's done and over with...
So where do you stand?

idk, that would in a way be like asking all white people to make a formal apology to blacks and Native Americans for what our ancestors did when we had nothing to do with it, or having Obama make a formal apology for what the government did back then, when he had nothing to do with it.

If the Church still holds the position of supporting the actions that were taken during that time, I would be more concerned about it, but I really don't think they do anymore. It would be nice to hear the leaders say how sad that time was in history.
