Yes Brian and it was interesting to watch. The old story of a ruling elite using religion to divide and keep the population under control. As we now know James the sixth of Scotland was obsessed with witchcraft and demonology and would watch old ladies being tortured with thumbscrews until they would admit that they were witches and then if they were lucky strangled before they were burnt. The same lunatic became James the first and in those days the Bible by many people was taken as gospel. The fact that this same lunatic was gay I suspect was kept hidden from his subjects. I wonder what the response would have been if this had been known? However we cannot go back to those times and its wonderful that in our country there is religious tolerance and that torture and capital punishment have been abolished.
