There are many theories given why Rome fell. Christianity being one of them. However I think that is not the main reason. I think one of the main reasons is there were no sexuality laws, anything goes, same with arena style killings. Lack of morals. Therefore I believe other problems became manifest. It's funny that while the catholic/christian church gets reamed a lot, they were the ones who tried to introduce behavioural concepts.

Again I feel society is reverting backwards.

IMO.

The moral issue is one of the obstensible causes of the fall of Rome.

Historians like to offer other explanations, sure enough the Roman empire reached its maximum potential, evidently there is a limit to how vast an empire can become in a given historical period.

I had to look up obstensible  Angry

Yes it could be obstensible, but not to me.

For that matter a lot of beliefs we share are obstensible, depending on who you ask.

I just don't think for me personally I would be able to advance spiritually if I engaged in the sexual behaviors they supposedly were involved in. The list is fairly long.

Moral debasement was sure widespread, there were other aspects though which are rarely discussed about late Roman society, such as those impersonated by the emperor Marcus Aurelius, successful general and stoic philosopher, very stern, morally irreprehensible, so much against vacuity that he was almost hated in court. I think rome went on as far as there were enough Marcuses Aureliuses around. Sure they were overwhelmed later on.

If you read a tad closer you'll see we were not the ones suffering from moral decay. But if I ever do, I'm betting your method will never work.
