Vatican Apologises for the Inquisition

Thanks go to nocturnia  for bringing the following story to my attention.

The Vatican have issued an apology over the Inquisition and the Witch Burnings. Fat lot of good it'll do the tens of thousands who were burnt at the stake (including Galileo for claiming the Earth revolved around the Sun) but hey, at least some organisations know how to apologise several hundred years after the fact..... (grumbles)
