Nuggets from Occult Invasion |

By A.D. 380 (43 years after Constantine’s death) Christianity had been made the official religion of the empire. Paganism as a separate religion was outlawed—a futile gesture, since it had already been absorbed into the church. Eventually, failure to give allegiance to the Pope was considered treason against the state, punishable by death. As Islam would be a few centuries later, a paganized Christianity was imposed upon the entire populace of Europe under threat of torture and death. Even a Catholic historian admits that Roman Catholicism became “the most persecuting faith the world has ever seen … [commanding] the throne to impose the Christian [Catholic] religion on all its subjects.”

The great secular historian Will Durant writes candidly: “Compared with the persecution of [alleged] heresy in Europe from 1227 to 1492, the persecution of Christians by Romans in the first three centuries after Christ was a mild and humane procedure.”

That Constantine was used by Satan to paganize Christianity is proved by what followed. St. Augustine remarked, “The man who enters [a fourth-century church] is bound to see … people wearing amulets, assiduous clients of sorcerers, astrologers. … The same crowds that press into the churches on Christian festivals … fill the theatres on pagan holidays.” [Pope] Julius II “would not leave Bologna till his astrologer marked the time as auspicious; Sixtus IV and Paul III let their stargazers fix the hours of their major conferences.”
