Yes -that's a fair point. I am led to believe that when the early missions came to the Saxon kingdoms they were expecting everyone to be pagan. It came as a shock when they found many Christians among the populations. Of course, Christians hate heresy even more than paganism and so conflict was inevitable. Interesting when you read Bede - he gives no credit whatsoever to "Celtic" Christianity
