You argue below about various historical events involving churchmen. But the thrust of Karl's question is not that "churchmen protect human freedom." Karl's point is that "theistic religion, particularly Christianity, provides the philosophical apparatus for justifying the protection of human freedom."

That's an entirely different matter altogether, one that does not depend on whether or not we can stack unfortunate (or fortunate) historical incidents in one pile or another.
