Rome didn't start the Christian ideology, they became absorbed into it. And although Christianity can be seen as a burden to Western civilization, it can also be seen as a cultural trait that kept Europe united. Christianity is also the root of the Western scholar system with universities, and Western philosophy and science is directly inherited from these initiatives. Today, science has killed off the religious part of Christianity (what an irony), but the cultural part remains a unifying factor of the West, just like Confucianism in China.|
Christianity thus has no chance of spreading as a _religious_ movement in China, because it is too late. The Chinese can, however, adhere to some of the moral principles, either on their own or as a complement to Confucian principles. Both Christian and Confucian principles have to be modified to be practical in the modern society.
Christians do not support Israel by default. While the USA support Israel, European countries usually support Palestine. China is also in favor of Palestine, for what reason I do not know.
Modern Christians in Europe do not support religious battles, but have a more refined religious thought pattern, bascially saying that all religions strive for the same thing and believe in the same creator. This is logical, because there can be at most one such creator.
As a scientific--minded atheist, I dare say there is none such creator.
