to murder the Poor
"A woman with her suckling infant are tied together in a bag and thrown into a river ... [to drown] .. four men are hanged at the same time for eating a goose on a fast day" c. 1750

Clerics would routinely judge a woman guilty of immorality - if she became pregnant after being raped by someone in `authority'
(often by a priest)
Over-fed priests were also merciless when enforcing `fasting days'
for the starving poor
In 1611 thugs ("bailiffs") of the "Church" broke into the homes of Mister Wightman and Mister Legat. Their wives and children were assaulted and Mister Wightman and Legat were beaten-up and abducted.
Those bishops' bailiffs then bound Mister Wightman and Mister Legat to stakes and burned them to death in public.
This was ordered by the bishop of London, a pervert named king, and by the bishop of Litchfield, a pervert named neyle.
Mister Legat and Mister Wightman had committed no `crime' - they were law abiding citizens.
But their thoughts on religion differed from those of the bishops of London & Litchfield.
