"God destroyed Rome"
Overheard a conversation the other day between two people. I didn't pay much attention at first, but the one said,"Gay people are the reason why God is going to destroy America." And then the other said something like,"That's why God destroyed Rome."

I felt like saying something, but I just kept on walking and laughed to myself.
I'm pretty sure I'm not the first person to hear something like this.

Don't you remember Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson saying that the 9-11 terrorist attack was God's way of punishing us for homosexuals? "God Will Not Be Mocked" - Falwell

Can't wait for those two bigots to die. If there is a God I beseech you to kill these two hate mongers.

The Eastern Roman Empire lasted another 1000 years.... and when it was overrun it was by the fucking allah lovers.

That was the Byzantines, though, right?
I can't remember for certain, but Rome was never 100% depopulated, was it? The Empire ceased to be, sure, but I don't think the city itself was ever annihilated.

Never totally depopulated, no. But it was pretty empty at times. In the Gothic era up to the re-entry of Justinian's armies it was basically deserted. After that there was some stability again, though the Lombards, Saracens and Normans got in new sacks before the Medieval era proper began and it became a prominent city again.

... this is my signature!

Why would those punks re-excavate the Colosseum's underground passages, and ruin the field? Soccer sucks enough, already! Drinking Beverage

Those passages were probably uninhabited while buried under trash!... Dodgy
