Marcus Aurelius Seianus wrote:By your own admission you are forcing your views on others by stating we all must honor and respect the religio or else. How is your argument even relevant when you contradict yourself?
What contradiction? Honoring and respecting the Cultus Deorum is in our Declaration, as Cominius Laenas has nicely pointed out. And we all have signed it.
By the way the Religio Romana cannot be intolerant by definition due to its polytheistic nature and the respect, which is given to the sacra privata. Only monotheism and atheism can be intolerant.
Our Emperor Alexander Severus for example who was a firm practitioner of the Religio Romana had an image of Jesus of Nazareth in his personal shrine, it is said. This is the kind of tolerance and respect I am talking about. The incompatibility of Christianity and the Cultus Deorum was postulated by the Christian side, not by the side of the Cultus Deorum. Even under the leadership of a Roman Collegium Pontificum, other gods like Jesus, Buddha, Allah, Krishna or even the FSM would not be oppressed. We do not need to fabricate a problem, when there is none.
