I feel obliged to protest the use of the term "catholic" in this context ... it isn't that the Roman church didn't do more than its share of persecution of Jews, but that other churches (including the Orthodox churches and many of the early Protestant churches) were equally guilty of this, and that some Protestant sects to this day teach that the Jews are "Christ-killers" when the Catholic church has clearly renounced such teachings. So my protest is not against the basic idea, only the singling out of Catholicism. --Dan'l --
