So why did Pope Benedict even bother writing his book?<quoted text>
Not worthy of a reply, but in line with the usual foolishness and childs play of someone who has little to offer in terms of truth or anything but abuse rather than the teachings of the church. Yes Joseph Ratzinger did write on the subject, but the point at hand is was it changed because of paganism. The answer is clearly no. It had nothing to do with it. Catholics are not afraid of it. He was talking about how the dates were determined. The exact date is more important to you than it is theologians or believers. What is noted is that Christians celebrated it before Constantine. So your premise and feeble attempt to put up a strawman that you can rip down of your own makings is nothing but your usual emptry ramblings. But thanks. I will chalk it up to another day of willful ignorance on your part.
Why did Constantine feel he had to unite his Christians under one date, if they were all in so much agreement?
Have you ever read Constantine's own words on the topic?
Some "ignorance" on my part maybe, but any on yours?
When you seek only information that proclaims only what you want to believe, how can you correct a factual error?
You cannot. Your sources are limited and your mind does not process information that doesn't conform to your cherished beliefs. Your outlet is to call others names and proclaim their ignorance.
You speak only truth, and the Easter Bunny will be here soon.
