A History of Christianity by Paul Johnson

A History of Christianity - A Page-by-Page Criticism of Paul Johnson's Horror Story - Michael Roll has revised his detailed criticism of Paul Johnson's 1976 book, which The Christian Century hailed as “the best one-volume history of Christianity ever done”.
In this exceptional book, Johnson offers a factual and comprehensive study of historical events that followed the founding of a little-known “Jesus Sect” and the countless atrocities committed in the name of Christianity.

Johnson writes:

“During these two millennia Christianity has, perhaps, proved more influential in shaping human destiny than any other institutional philosophy, but there are now signs that its period of predominance is drawing to a close, thereby inviting a retrospect and a balance sheet.”

This pamphlet is dedicated to every person in the world who has had the fear of Christ put up them -- Those who have been terrified by priests into thinking that, if they do not believe in priestcraft, they will rot in hell forever without any chance of getting out. Mental child abuse must now carry the same penalty as physical child abuse.

In England, the Church and the state are established. Up until 2009, when the common law offence of blasphemous libel was abolished, it was against the law to tell the true history of Christianity, to let people have access to what is contained in this criticism on the grounds that it may upset Christians. This block was policed by a handful of powerful people holding all the top positions in our schools, on the air waves, and in the press, all working through the highly efficient religious affairs departments.
Why did Rev. Don Cupitt, Dean of Emmanuel College, University of Cambridge, make the following statement in 1988:

“Somehow, everybody just knows that Christianity is the Church and the Church is a power-structure, an apparatus for limiting freedom in belief and morals.”

And what did Professor Sir A.J. Ayer, Wykeham Professor of Logic at the University of Oxford, mean when he was reported on the front page of the first Mail on Sunday to have said:

“Christianity is morally outrageous and intellectually contemptible.”
