Yeah, I think this is just another sign that Christianity is not well suited to its current position. The New Testament was directed towards recluses and scrappers, people who were just trying to scrape through the world and humbly keep their heads down till the second coming, which was just around the corner.
It does not offer advice on how to be a majority religion, how to wield political power and influence. This was alien to the early religion. And as a consequence the vaccum of having the world stage has been filled with bullying and douchbaggery, uncharacteristic to the message of the early Christians.
