The History of the Catholic Church, the origins of Christianity (part II)

With the fall of the empire, the Catholic Church could fulfill its historic role of shaping the new feudal society, constituting its articulating element and its main ideological pillar to maintain the political unity of a convulsed West, which was the inheritance of the failure of the imperial system Roman.

Jealous guardian reactionary their preaching of the gospel were so useful to preach and encourage the submission of the servants of the glebe to the lords and their impotent destiny in front of the world that surrounded them with sweet words of comfort in times of peace and with the sword and the fire to quell the peasant revolts, and placate any attempt to question the existing order. 

The Roman pope was such an enemy of bourgeois society, plotting to the end attempts to stifle his cultural, scientific and political revolutions, as intelligent when turning the other cheek to submit to the new lords who controlled the world.

Those freed from religious submission, were no less intelligent when it came to making the cold calculation that an institution that had survived the deepest contradictions of history, constituted a sharp reactionary weapon, tempered by more than two thousand years of History, three means of production, and with an extensive network of officials spread across the globe, would be useful in maintaining its domination over humanity .

Thus it was exalted to the category of the world party of reaction, always ready to go in the name of the heavenly father, against the enemies of bourgeois domination, and especially in search of undermining the unity among the oppressed, with their raging sermons in against the freedom of women and of sexual diversity today, in the same way that it served before the feudal lords, and the patricians and slavers of the Roman era.
