Castrated Choir Boys - a complete disaster for history section?

Actually, it's probably a complete disaster for Woods to be in charge of the history section, as the Roman Catholic church completely controlled Europe for a long time, and you will not learn history by covering up for the Roman Catholic church.

They use to castrate boys to make them sing better in their choirs. Pedophile scandal has been going on a long time. I don't think a Tom Woods history will mention any of the multitude of wrongs by the Roman Catholic church.

Voice of angels Vatican view of the sound of castrati, sanctioned by Pope Sisto V who sanctioned their presence in the Vatican by papal bull, 1589.
Sistine chapel choir Popes maintained a choir of castrati to perform in the Sistine chapel as an edict by St. Paul prevented women singing in church. Officially, the Vatican condemned the practice and punished castrators with excommunication. Issued a decree banning castrati from the Sistine chapel, 1902.

Pope urged to apologise for Vatican castrations
