Obama’s Drones Have Killed More Than the Spanish Inquisition

Controversy still swirls around Obama’s comments during the National Prayer Breakfast this week, where he chastised Christians for getting on their “high horse” over the ongoing global jihad, invoking medieval abuses that occurred hundreds of years ago during the Crusades and Inquisition.

But perhaps it is Obama who should avoid getting on his high horse, since according to recently published statistics, Obama’s drone campaign has killed more people during the six years of his presidency than were killed the 350 years of the Spanish Inquisition.

Sorry, but no. There are virulently anti-Catholic sites which give the Inquisition deaths in the millions. Absurd on the face of it if you think about the available technology and world population. There are also pro-Catholic sites which give cooked numbers like the one quoted. Actual historical numbers are likely around 40-50k, with 5k and 100k being outliers.
