comment If Christians believe that Christ was a God and immortal (or resurrected), why do some avenge his killing in his name?
"'Vengence is mine', sayeth the Lord" - some groups interpret it as to mean that people who avenge Christ killing are perpetrating God's will or guided by God or that God does the vegenance with their hands or that the vegenance is not just their own desire but blessed by God so even if somebody wanted to stop the hostilities, it would be impossible and contrary to what God wants.

comment Why were scientific questions such a threat to Roman Catholic leaders that their proponents were threatened to be burnt at the stake?
@Lennart Regebro it was prohibited only for 4 years, not for its essence, but for political introduction and some other theological claims. history.stackexchange.com/questions/7941/…

@Lennart Regebro "Similarly, the Catholic Encyclopedia (1908) asserts that "Bruno was not condemned for his defence of the Copernican system of astronomy, nor for his doctrine of the plurality of inhabited worlds, but for his theological errors, among which were the following: that Christ was not God but merely an unusually skillful magician, that the Holy Ghost is the soul of the world, that the Devil will be saved, etc."[41]"

@Lennart Regebro From Wikipedia (there are refereces there): According to the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, "in 1600 there was no official Catholic position on the Copernican system, and it was certainly not a heresy. When [...] Bruno [...] was burned at the stake as a heretic, it had nothing to do with his writings in support of Copernican cosmology."[40]
