Pagan Rome killed many Christians

As has Christian Rome.
Compared with the persecution of heresy in Europe from 1227 to 1492,
the persecution of Christians by Romans in the first three centuries after Christ
was a mild and humane procedure...
  We must rank the Inquisition along with the wars and persecutions of our time
as among the darkest blots on the record of mankind...
Will Durant
