Why?  Because fundies are murdering genocidal scumbags
innately?  If Xtianity hadn't happened, the crimes of
Xtianity wouldn't have happened.  Period.  I note that you
ignore, in true Xtian fashion, all the points that Preston
has made about your history.

ap> The Roman Catholic Church, is not christianity,

It sure is.  It IS the source from which all modern Xtianity
descends.  If it hadn't been for Catholicism, there'd be no
Xtianity today.

ap> just peganism with a Christian name.

Aren't your eyes a lovely shade of brown . . .
