    The Other Side Of History

    The Blood-Soaked Cross conquered Western Civilization. Gods were dethroned, images were smashed, history was changed. A wasteland where camels grazed became a holy land. Crude writings written in barbarous dialects became sacred scriptures. An ill-tempered desert deity...
