Have any of the New Atheists toured [[Islam]]ic countries giving lectures in which they condemn [[Allah]], [[Muhammad]], Islam, or Muslims? Have any of them debated Muslims in Islamic countries? Have any of them been interviewed on Al Jazeera? Have any of them written entire books in which they condemn Allah, Muhammad, Islam, or Muslims? Have they ... (more)

Now I know how a special Ed teacher must feel. This makes me wonder if I was this stupid when I was a Christian? I certainly hope not but I progressed past this one way or the other.

1: You mentioned a church named in his honor. And yet again he himself never converted just forced it on the masses to consolidate power. Most Christian churches aren't going to take the time and effort to make such things to a non Christian Right? Regardless this is a non sequitur.
2: Starting with Constantine and his was quite successful you are a product of that success.
3: There were no Christian armies there really wasn't that many Christians. I know you lack the IQ to understand but once again let's give it a try. Constantine to consolidate power decides to make a religion that combines elements of the Greek gods along with the Jewish faith the official state religion. All soldiers wake up to find they are now Christian like it or not. Also they are charged to announce this throughout the kingdom and destroy/convert temples to Hercules, Perseus, Zeus, Hera and others to Christian house of worship. People either went along with it or faced imprisonment if lucky and the sword if not so lucky. They did make attempts to sugar coat the transition for the worshippers of the Greek gods combining outright greek gods rituals and goodies into the Christian faith. But for a common man to keep any of the holy writings about the Greek gods was punishable by death. We are lucky to have what little we do now as the majority was destroyed or renamed to Christian entities.

For example the earliest artwork of Jesus shows him as a young beard free man. That wasn't the image that took well to the worshippers of he Greek gods so they literally took the well known look of Apollo and said Oh hey this is Apollo Christ errr Jesus Christ! Lmfao!

1) I say again ...Where are the St.Constantine churches...or medals and charms ...Where are his name sakes ..???
2)silly billy...No one denies that Christians have (at times)tried to forcibly convert others ...these are usually abject failures ..i.e..the crusades ,Taiping rebellion..
3)You are ignorant ..if you are suggesting ..(at the time of Constantine)..Christian armies could ever defeat the Pagan military machines ...

...I guess I'm just way too stupid to understand anything ....everything you wrote (except the last) is poop..
1) He had a vision telling him , his armies would become invincible ,if they painted a cross on their shields.
1a)..Invincible Army...He is a Pagan ..life is good ..why, convert others ?
1b)..Pagans are notoriously loyal to their gods...you would have me believe ..that they just rolled over ..and, risked the wraith of their own gods ..absurd ..
2)The Byzantine had beautiful statuary ...of the Greek gods ..early Christians didn't have the heart to destroy them ...and, since the Greek gods don't really exist anyway....why not just rename them ..Hera to Mary..Apollo to Jesus...this is well documented..
3)From a catholic encyclopedia..Constantine did "not" endeavour to spread christianity...from my web search "Did Constantine spread christianity with the sword?"....that was inconclusive ..."yes" and "no" ...Some people really believe he did....But, I would rather stick to something reputable ..
4)..So ,for brevity sake....Wow "Givemeliberty" I don't know how you manage to whip my little white ass at every turn ..!!

Did I say, or in any way imply that an opposite to anything was in play here?

Do you or do you not wish to rescind your previous statement, where-in you did give the devil credit for a plant?

Speak up? How are we to know which part of which myth, you pretend to pay lip service to , unless we ask?

One more quick question, based on your earlier statement, we should expect the Saint Michael the Arch Angel, to rule his own heaven? How will that work out, with him, being a direct opposite of the ruler of hell?

Much as Hades rules Hell and Zeus ruled the heavens, Michael will rules his small part of mount Olympus err heaven. Sorry with all the similarities between Christianity and the Greek gods it's easy to get them mixed up.

Satan only wishes to harm mankind ...because, He can not hurt God directly ..
2)The Prince of lies is that dude that "keys" your car ..because , he fears a direct confrontation ..
