    at the actual history of Christianity, it has overwhelmingly advanced the privilege of the powerful and wealthy.  Let's not forget that this tiny little cult rose into prominence as an imperial religion due to Constantine.  It would have been nice had it actually based itself on the actual teachings of those early Christians.  I'm glad that leftwing Christians exist and hope more of them come to exist, but rightwing versions of contemporary Christianity are far more representative of what the history of Christianity has been (not that there haven't been exceptions, just that they've been small compared to what's dominated).
