Yeah, it may be deserved—but other denominations and groups shouldn't be let off the hook either. Why is it that only the RCC gets all the press? Think about that.
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
