Since Washington DC has been referred to as "the new Rome" and Constantine the Great moved the capital of the Roman Empire to Turkey dubbing Constantinople as "the new Rome" it's always been interesting to me to delve into Constantine the Great's conversion to Christianity which contemporaries and historians since have not always accepted as genuine. This, of course, involves the Vision of the Lighted Cross he had on October 27, 312 just before the Battle of the Milvian Bridge where he defeated Maxentius, then entered Rome in triumph on October 29, 312. Rome's Arch of Constantine continues to commemorate his victory.
But as the following excerpted 4-min-32-sec video points out, Roman Emperor Constantine may have been seeking forgiveness for murdering his son and having his wife suffocated in a hot steam bath, two acts which might bother the conscience of almost any dictator of the global expansionist variety--and pagan priests had refused to pardon him for his crimes:
Come to think of it, I'm not certain the sin of murder bothers the consciences of our modern crop of imperial expansionists who would have to have consciences first. You've seen them: they read their Global Government scripts like dead-eyed robots.
