BBC News - Pakistan mob burns man to death for 'blasphemy'
Religious extremists again

He's still a Saint, actually. What more endorsement of his actions by the present day Church do you need other than their consideration of him as a Saint?

How ironic, considering he himself made martyrs out of 6 protestants who refused to submit their conscience to the Pope's wishes. You might say he had it coming. Though it wasn't quite fair, considering Moore was beheaded - a relatively painless death compared to being burned alive - the fate of Moore's victims. The fact that the Church regards this man as a Saint today is tacit endorsement of his persecution of protestants.
