  1. Apparently she never heard of Christianity. 11 of the 12 disciples died as martyrs for their cause. The 12th committed suicide in shame for his actions. None are recorded as having killed any one.

    Peter was the closest to a killer, he cut off an ear with a sword. Jesus promptly put it back on and rebuked Peter, before they led him off and killed him for his cause.
