@Peter Hall,

The Romans did not force anybody to become a citizen but they did force the "Christian Love"upon the Greeks ! In the years following the death of the emperor Julian,named "Apostate" by the Chistian Church for his prohellenic stance,during his short stay in power,a tsunami of savagery was unleashed upon the Hellenes,by the "newly Chistianized"Goths of Allaric, being led down the Greek peninsula by fanatic christian monks. That was the first show of true "christian love"by the christian church,more of this was to follow for the next seven centuries. All Roman Emperors,following Julian,were puppets of the church which had already achieved supreme power status,within the eastern empire,the "Great"Justinian being the worst of them all !

The Temples of our beautiful Gods were destroyed and ugly churches built on the sacred sites,often using pieces of marble and lime stone that escaped the savagery of the asbestos furnaces.The religious festivals,music, athletic competitions, theaters,all outlawed,the schools closed,the last schools of high education in Athens,where the "fathers of the church"studied,were closed by Justinian and their professors had to run for their lives to Persia,out of all places !! When the savage Turks conquested the leftovers of the Eastern Roman empire,they didnt find any Greeks there,those had being exterminated by the intense "love"of the christian church. They found instead a strange creature called Romios,the victim of forced proselytisation and terror from the church of "love".

The barbarous Turks,quickly realised the advantage of ruling the enslaved populations through the church,so they gave them their previous status and sometimes even more power.To this day in their churches,in the land of Greece,they anathematize our great ancestors as being filthy,homosexuals, stone worshipers,etc.They are today the most powerful political and economic force in Greece,nobody can challenge them.They dominate every part of public life and insist of having a say so in private affairs such as giving christian names to the children instead of Greek names.They are largely responsible for the bad condition of the country today,holding the state in a headlock,doing big business being tax free and getting paid top salaries as public employees.Greece is the only country other than Iran today,that public life is so contaminated by the black dressed taliban like,orthodox moolahs.
