This was the point I was trying to get to but seem to have been unclear about (don't know how people missed that point but hey I suppose 'Denigration of the female role' isn't as clear as 'Only one manifestation, the male'). If you cannot see how having an Arian dominated Patriarchal warrior society controlling Rome MAY have affected the early RCC then I'm not gonna try further - I don't like pounding my fist into brick walls anymore.

    Also Saying the RCC NEVER followed an Arian interpretation because it isn't today is like saying the Eastern Orthodox church was NEVER Iconoclastic because it isn't today. Saying such Doesn't make it true. Organizations Change over time and both have been round for 1500+ years.

    We could both be right in part. We could both be wrong. one of us could be right and the other wrong. I am giving you the interpretation I believe best fits the facts and accepted practices of the time from my studies and personal research.
