When I peruse the records of man, beginning with the advent of Christianity, I see throughout its withering pages numerous sects relentlessly warring with the Church.
The earliest Christians peaceably lived and preached, and as time went on, they received the sword of the pagan emperors.
After their holy creed was legalized, they had to suffer under the persecution of the Persian Zoroastrians, and war commenced between Christendom and Persia.
Once the Persian heathens were defeated, Islam arose, and countless of the saints were slaughtered by the Mohammedan horde.
In the modern era, which is our own, the Deists arose and declared a new god, one which is cold and absent of affection, and once these men thrived, France was overrun with mobs, its streets flooded with blood, and the Faith oppressed.
What with such a history, what sane Christian would ever believe in religious tolerance?
