Catholic historians writhe when they read that Pope Julius II (1443-1513) said this, and then acted upon his words;
‘Christians are the unstable, unlettered, superstitious masses’.
(Diderot’s Encyclopèdie, 1759)
He hated them, and set out to kill as many ‘mad believers’ that he could, with the world knowing little about ‘his horrible massacre of Christians by which he was stained’ (The History of Romanism, Rev. John Dowling, A. M., Pastor of the Berean Church, New York, 1845, p. 450).
