5/4/12: God's Jury

Salt Lake City, UT – Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition. But not everybody really knows what it is, either. The writer Cullen Murphy has written a book about the Catholic Church's 700-year persecution of its enemies, both real and imagined.

Murphy joins Doug on Friday to remind us the Inquisition isn't something safely relegated to the past (Rebroadcast)
