After reading many of the comments here, I would tend to agree. I came here to find out more about why the Emperor Constantine chose Christianity over Zoroasterism as the religion of the empire, and why Alexander felt it necessary to persecute the religion centuries earlier. This, as part of a monograph I'm working on with a friend abroad.
*Before I came to this Discussion Forum* I felt I had a set of answers. I was impressed with the notions of free will, of good thoughts, good words, good deeds. Then I came here to find the usual sectarian prejudices, attempts to base religious belief on ethnicity, so much of the *bad and exclusivist* thinking to be found everywhere.
That's when I understand Alexander, if not Constantine.
