Excersus CXIL: Beautiful, Terrible Ideas
Reviewing the long and stumbling history of Christianity, it's hard not to come to the conclusion that it was being
run secretly by a group that had anything but it's best interests at heart. Indulgences, papal pomp, Protestantism,
Inquisitions, opening the Bible to public scrutiny... all really terrible ideas, each one of which hastened the demise
of Christianity by untold decades if not centuries. Who knows how much more attractive Christianity would be to the
growing mass of nonbelievers now if nobody had any idea what it said, and if its figures of authority spent all of their
time patronizing art and whores like they did before Protestantism gloomily reared its head. Fortunately for us, and unfortunately
for the generations preceding ours, Western religion pursued all of these awful notions to their utmost and so stand today,
cap in hand, begging like an ousted clique prince to be let back in the club.
