    Superstitious, gullible folks need some sort of nonsense to believe in...that's why Christianity was invented...

    For whatever reason, even though Christianity began in the middle east, it took off and greatly expanded into Europe compared to Asia and Africa.  Mainly and/or probably because of Jesus' Golden Rule teaching (Mt 7:12), Europe gradually, but relatively quickly, went from an economy based on slavery, to one of serfdom, to our modern economy today, starting around the tenth century.  (In stark contrast for example, there are still pockets of slavery in Africa today.)  Because of having a modern economy, Europeans and westerners have faired much better economically than other parts of the world.

    George Washington is a prime example of how Christianity can inspire someone and at the same time greatly and positively impact a nation.  After the Revolutionary War, he was offered a kingship over America.  With the Golden Rule in mind (he had fought against being ruled by a king), he refused the offer, and instead the US got a democratically elected leader.

    Even today, because of the Judeo-Christian values America has, we have nowhere near the corruption of countries like China and South Africa, which has indirectly contributed to making America the most powerful nation in the world.

    In the history of Rome, Christians brought discontent and dissatisfaction, but no better solution than the "bread and circus" bribery which the emperor offered them, bringing the emperor's wrath. 

    they are a world-order that is strangely and mysteriously obsessed with liberating the Holy Land. Europe became Christian and then waged ‘white’ Holy Wars called ‘the crusades’ for a thousand years until success was finally achieved when a British army, led by General Allenby, defeated the Ottoman Islamic Empire’s army and triumphantly entered Jerusalem in 1917. Allenby then declared “today the crusades have ended”. In fact the crusades will not end so long as Muslims resist oppression in the Holy Land.
