I'm 5 minutes in, and it's already a boatload of historical revisionism. Christianity did not "pacify" Rome, it's not like violence ceased and international conflict ended. These major conflicts he's referring to are political and economic. It's not like the church infrastructure wasn't heavily involved in the political; it's not like Christianity didn't start turning on its own citizens to keep them in line.

Sorry, I can't be bothered with the rest when it starts off with such spurious arguments.

That's not what he said. Nor was it his point.
