The spread of Christianity in a nutshell.
Whenever anybody attempts to convince me of all the good that Christianity has done in the world, all I have to do is think about the indigenous people of Alaska and in many other parts of the world, to remember the cost of all of that "good."
Entire cultures and civilizations were wiped out to make room for the Christian expansion, and in exchange for the loss of their land, their heritage, and in some cases even their language, they were promised a life after death that nobody has proved exists in the thousands of years of Christianity's existence.
That is a hell of a marketing ploy.
