    Have adherents to Christianity used state power to proselytize?

    What is your view? How do you see Christianity using brute force to push its will on minorities? Please give specific examples. Thank you in advance for sharing your view civilly.

    I guess I would have to ask you to define Christianity and minorities first, as the "Christian" label gets thrown about rather liberally these days. It used to be that you could tell what someone meant by the denomination, now it seems to be a general "grouping" effect going on.

    obviously they have. the state and church were part of this pact to proselytize especially among the colonized natives of 3rd world countries.

    Let's see, there's the statement, "In God we Trust" listed on our money, the statement "under God" added to the Pledge of Allegiance in the 1950s, and the Bush administration's shunting of tax dollars to religious charities.  And that's just off the top of my head--I'm sure I could come up with more, particularly if you go back far enough into history.

    If,by christians you mean organized religion maybe. In my own way I consider myself a christian but I do not belong to any church .I was brought up in a Roman catholic sourounding and yet I haven been to church in at least 40 years.I 'm of the opinion that organized religions are formed as a way to control people.I don't think it was always that way.Unfortunately because of human weaknesses religion was intended to uplift mankind.However over time it has proven that the majority of mankind is easily led by the nose because of the inability or unwilliness to think for ourselves and or if we know what's going on in the world and know that corruption is everywhere we try to go along to get along.Unless we are uncomfortable enough that we feel that there is no other choice but to rebel because things are so bad we have nothing to lose.
    Consider the following statement and tell me it's not true!
    "If,I were not rich i would not get the mark" The mark being a reference to a number that Identifies you and is a replacement for money as revelations states  - "All those who do not get the mark wheather rich or poor will not be able to buy or sell without the mark of the beast".The beast being like the beast of the field who is led to the slaughter.They know not what awaits them.They just live as long as they are allowed to by their shepherd.
