I always thought that Democracy began through
the teaching of Christianity over the centuries .

Christianity has influenced through the centuries , so called
democratic governments , from Roman times .
So you go read a history book and give your self a break
from trying to bring me down with your spiteful posts .

Democracy is widely accepted as starting in Greece - the clue is in the word. I do not believe the Greeks were Christian at the time.

I don't think that people are trying to be spiteful, angel although some could have been more polite. It's just that there were forms of democracy around before Jesus was born or rather Christianity was born.

Betsy ,, there have been many types of democracies during the ages .

I mention Roman , because Christianity was there during part of the time that the Roman Empire existed .

Yes, and they were fed to the lions. I also do not think anyone is being spiteful to you Angel, you've said things like this before, and I don't think it's the case.

Christianity is young, it's only been around for 2000 years, starting in Judea. But, there are thinkers who say it began 6000 years ago when Adam and Eve sinned. Och aye, those two were naughty.

with regards to your thought" on my post#33 I really don't care . However , it you are determined to let others know your opinion on this important matter then just carry on . it is a democratic board after all or it's supposed to be . I think.!!

Not being spiteful at all, i was offering advice to you to buy a history book if you were of the opinion that democracy started with Christianity. Like has been said, and dare i say it accepted as fact for a couple of thousand years, democracy is credited to the Ancient Greeks as is the word politics.


BTW it's not a democratic board.

Carmella is seems it is a waste of time giving your or anyone else's opinion on this board so we may as well not bother as every time you disagree with anything Angel has to say "SHE DOSEN'T CARE' but as it is a democratic board she has given you and I at times permission to carry on since it is such an important matter on when Christianity started.

Don't know about pedantic and semantic but it is definitely PATHETIC
