Your middle eastern cult merely adopted the European lifestyle. Damn near everything you do and say has some ties to paganism. Every time you celebrate some holiday like Christmas or call out a day and month you are giving remembrance to a multitude of religions that existed WAY before Christianity. If you live in Europe and even in some parts of the U.S. you live in areas that are named after pagans or pagan name in origin.
Everytime you talk shit about pagans or paganism you instantly become a walking hypocrisy because society as a whole never shed its past of paganism. Hell, even the basis of Roman/Greek/Early English law centred around the customs and views of PAGANS.
Ultimately Christianity filled in the gaps of whatever it could to blend itself into early European life. That's the only way Christianity was able to flourish while Islam, a religion that refuses to mix with other cultures, failed to take hold without conquest.
So keep talking shit. If Christianity never tried imitating pagans or pagan customs it never would've been adopted as the official Roman religion.
Nice try SATAN!!
