Beza’s Death Sentence

bezaFor having left France because he was a Protestant [Beza] was condemned by the Parliament of Paris to death, and all his property confiscated to the State (May 31, 1550). By special royal mandate his property was restored to him in 1564, although he was at the time at the head of the Reformed Church of France. –  Schaff

The next time an American Christian complains about being ‘persecuted’, ask them when they were condemned to death and their property confiscated by the State.
