Historical Post #2: Joan of Arc, Heretic

Joan of Arc was convicted of heresy and executed. Her crimes?

#1- Wearing men's clothes.
#2- Being in league with Satan.

You'd think if you were a female in the fifteenth century parading around in men's clothing and making enemies all over Western Europe, you'd have the common sense not to be in league with Satan. Bad move, Joan. Bad move.
