My country was not peacefully settled by religious people, it was christianized. It was forcefully transferred from paganism, sometimes by the use of sword and physical torture. People were given two choices, Christianity or Death.
A few brave heroes chose death.
This is why, if a dictator takes over my country and choose it to be dechristianized by the same method, the very core of my being would be horrified and revolted.
But after it was done, I would not feel survivors guilt.
