The actual cause was that Christianity was illegal before 312. Constantine made it legal in that year.
It is still legal, but in many places such as in Canada and I think in some places in Europe, preaching unadulterated Christian doctrine, contrary to the political PC, is illegal.
My observation is that we are everywhere devolving to the point that Christianity is fine as long as each individual Christian is willing to sacrifice to the PC God.
In other words, you can privately believe whatever you want as long as you publicly agree to the pagan consensus.
Earlier Christians died in refusing to do this.
