You have got to be kidding. May I refer you to the Spanish Inquisition, Englands pillaries, France and the fine art of torture before the guillotine took off a head or two and last but not least Germany of the 20th centuryand their experimentation on their fellow man. And for the coup de gras, Islamist extremists of the 21st century, whom we all know still stone women, cut off heads, and perform other degrading tortuous acts on their fellow human beings before they put a bullet in their heads. I do think you have stepped way over the boundaries with that particular statement.
