This really displays how they approach these issues as struggles between different secular societal ideologies, not as serious theological, spiritual or metaphysical questions. They really can’t fathom the fact that there are people now and in the past who actually believe in a living God. They always frame ancient paganism as some sort of deeply “psychological” and philosophical approach to natural phenomena, however thanks to historical record and archeology we know that the ancients quite literally believed in bearded men throwing spears and hammers from the sky and prayers to them were not only symbolical acts but genuine requests for aid. Why would they sacrifice perfectly good lifestock just as a symbolical act?"Christianity has never been tried"
It's an obvious parody of "real communism has never been tried before".
