Why did a democracy arrest Jesus Christ’s Apostles in the New Testament era?

Jesus Christ’s Apostles were arrested and killed by a democracy (a democratic form of government).  The Roman Empire (like the American Empire) was a democracy that emphasized religious tolerance and fought religious intolerance.

In fact, US democracy is modeled after the Roman democracy.

The two democracies share fundamental similarities, such as religious pluralism and tolerance, which the apostles of Jesus Christ attacked in their fulfillment of the Great Commission of Jesus Christ.  For the New Testament, there is only one true religion, which is Christianity, and other religions are attacked as being false religions.

St. Peter and St. Paul emphasized that Jesus Christ is the only God, and that all other religions are false religions.  This offended the Roman Empire, which emphasized religious liberty and respect for all religions.  Thus, the democratic government in the New Testament time arrested St. Paul and St. Peter for hate crimes against other religions in claiming that they are false religions.

Exclusivity of Christian salvation offended Roman democracy as it does American democracy.

Democracy is fundamentally opposed to the New Testament, which emphasizes that Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation and that all other religions go toward Hell.

True Christians will stand against religious pluralism of democracies and stand with the New Testament and emphasize that Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation.

True Christians in America wil push to make America a distinctively and overtly a Christian nation.

The Puritans in the New World did not allow other religions.  American Founders did not want non-Christian religions on American soil.
