I don't recall reading anywhere that either Paul or Peter participated in the stoning, persecuting or prosecuting people that held other beliefs.
This is from the New Testament of the Bible.
Acts 7:58 "And cast him out of the city, and stoned him: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man's feet, whose name was Saul. 59 And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit."
