    Catholicism goes all the way back to Jesus.
    the various christian primitivist and non-trinitarian groups say otherwise (those who weren't, well, wiped out and are now reboots.)

      called Athanasianism.  A good deal of it was invented in the 3rd and 4th centuries, which is why Catholics pledge allegiance to the Council of Nicea.

      But then, most Protestants are still mostly Athanasians as well.

      A "moderate" in this environment is a person who splits the difference between half-assed government and a total shitpile.

        Christianity is all about that Nicene code, after which they wiped out pretty much most competitors. Catholics may claim they're direct descendents of the church started by Jesus, but so do many other groups. Who the Church mostly wiped out of existence.

        (I sometimes wonder how history would have turned out if there never was a Council of Nicea.)
