Saints and sinners are confusing concepts as Christianity was subsumed into the Roman Empire after the most bloody persecution by tyrannical Emperor Diocletian in 303AD to 311AD. Following his reign, Constantine embraced Christianity as the religion of the state on The Next Day. On Another Day. Look what happened as corruption and power leaked into what was a following of a prophet of peace and love, how it turned into the persecution and abuse of the poor and the vulnerable in a collusion between power and faith. Look how it turned to the abuse of children, a cause for the worst wars throughout its bloody history. Central to its myth is a belief in something better but it – organised religion can not stand what it stands for – indeed.
