If you thought that something as evil and horrifying as the Spanish Inquisition was "unspinnable", think again. The Catholic Church is actually trying to downplay how bad the Inquisition was. Gotta love this: "of those investigated as heretics by the notorious Spanish Inquisition only 1.8 percent were executed." Oy!

I think that's where the saying 'Sticking a red hot poker up your arse' comes from.

It has been estimated that during Tomas de Torquemada's tenure of office over 200,000 souls were tortured and killed. Of those at least half were under the direct control on the Inquisitor General himself, Tomas Torquemada. This makes him the most successful murder in history to date.
