‘This is a shocking account of how the ignorance of the catholic church created the conditions that lead up to the black death, one of the deadliest pandemics in human history, by simply associating the common house cat with satan. The black death is estimated to have killed 30% to 60% of Europe’s population, reducing the world’s population from about 450 million to between 350 and 375 million around 1400. The question have to be asked: Was this intentional? We know that “witches” were persecuted by various religious groups, and “witches” have strong association with cats.
So was this a conspiracy by the catholic church to kill about 100 million people or was it simply because of ignorance, idiotic superstition and a screwed up theology? Whatever the case might be, the fruits of this backward organization is rotten to the core.’
