Friendly reminder that there were foreigners in “The Isles” since the Iron Age.

Yes, the Picts received visitors from places as far away as Phoenicia and Greece. I don’t care if this hurts some egos in today’s world. You can’t change History to fit in with your unresolved internalised Colonialism.

I say Colonialism because it’s not a 1400s invention. It started with the Romans. Oh but I forgot, everyone keeps pretending they don’t see that, because our entire system today is based on [militaristic, expansive, predatory, unsustainable, unequal and corrupt] Ancient Roman values, even though the empire itself is dead. White people are too fragile to admit they inherited bad habits and messed up big time, and now need to learn a thing or two from non-imperialistic leaders. I’ll keep calling attention to this.

But who cares about some random one-in-a-hundred Pictish stone, am I right? So, let’s talk about Christianity. Celtic Christianity.
