I've heard this all too many times before. Every few years, right around Easter, some Sunday School teacher will resurrect this thing once again (pun intended). I have heard it much tamer than this writing, and much more graphic.

Funny, because this whole story seems to miss the point of the Atonement of Christ, doesn't it?

Just because it has all the hallmarks of an UL doesn't mean that it is. Life is often stranger than fiction.

I don't think it changes much at every telling. It seems quite consistent. Inquisition torture victims by putting rats in cage on victims stomach.

And I'm not sure how we can conclude, given a cited reference, that all tellings are false. However it does seem unfair to attribute it to the Inquisition.
