The Reality behind the Fall of the Roman Empire & The Beginning of The Dark Ages.
We continue to break through the illusions and lies of the Powers and Principalities. We have been told that it was the evil barbarians, too much reliance on mercenaries, that Rome was too pagan and decadent, that The Church held the torch of enlightenment for centuries afterwards and several other fables. But the scorching truth is the end of the Greco/Roman age-- that despite its brutality stored utopias of reason, art, philosophy and religious tolerance-- was the cause of a certain Orthodox branch of a certain faith. The Satanic marriage between Constantine and his Bishops sent civilization into more than a thousand years of darkness and pain. What truly happened and perhaps how we can avoid it again.

Make sure you've got antacid and a bottle of liquid Prozac. The dark side of Christianity is much darker than your darkest contemplations. But the fortress of ignorance and mad faith must come down, inside and outside of every Truthseeker.
