A Dreadful Religion

By Kidu14, San Diego, CA

Christianity – a religion that is followed by millions yet retains an equal amount who condemn it. Christianity has been the cause of major catastrophe in the form of the Crusades, the Exploration Age, and The Old and New Imperialism, respectively in the 1000s – 1300s, the Late 1400s – 1500s, the 1500s – 1700s, and the Late 1800s A.D. It is viewed as the destroyer of the light that shines in all human beings whether it be the unholy invasion of the Holy Land or the White Man’s Burden that weighed heavy on the Africans. The Spanish colonies even experienced this dreadful belief while millions of Native Americans died in spite of its inspiring message of hope. This is the picture that is painted in the classrooms of America.

What I fail to understand is where Christianity went wrong. We learn about how the Romans persecuted these poor followers of a man who seems more like a betrayer than a savior.
