Back where it belongs...
"... generalize what individuals who belong to the Church do to your religion, then let's turn it around in fair play. Is this a case of the Pot Calling the Kettle Black? In the time of the Roman Empire, the Church was the little player and was being tortured, set aflame alive, and fed to lions for pleasure, and even gambling, by the Roman Empire."
You mean of course until the roman empire became Catholic, and forced catholicism upon the whole of europe by various means... if you're going to get all historical, then let's not be so selective about the history. There was no such thing as Catholicism untill the Roman Empire - that's why it's called the Roman Catholic Church. True Hippocracy is claiming that I will go to hell for being pagan... that I am sinful, while failing to have taken proper action (or even give a meaningful apology) for priests abusing young boys. True hippocracy is telling me that I am going to hell for my beliefs, and that I am essentially the spawn of satan for what I believe, and even that I am worthy of persecutipon, while demanding that their beliefs are respected.
Sorry Christopher, but near 2 millenia of history stands against you on this one, including, but not limited to the Spanish Inquizition (and it's current "doctrine of the faith" incarnation), and religious endorsement of the Malleus Malificarum... Oh, and then there's the persecution of anybody that didn't agree with Galen for 1500 years, and the threats they made to Gallileo for stating that the earth revolves around the sun.
In the modern day, I'm different from pagans of old (in that I defend myself by the pen, not by the sword) - I'll respect those that respect me and earn it. The Catholic church however is not different in this regard - it's still disrespecting me and my beliefs.
