  •  Why is it that they focus on ancient Rome? (0+ / 0-)

    Specifically the second and third centuries?  

    Christians ought to look at a slightly wider time-frame.  By the end of the fourth century, the Christians were running Rome and they were as brutal or worse than the pagans before them. Read about Theodosius, a real prick if ever there was one.  Read about Constantine, the first Christian emperor, who had his son Crispus killed on a rumor and seems to have been unusually wicked and manipulative, even for a Roman emperor.
