Governments don't do what they (the people who run them) think is just or
unjust. They do what is expedient based on the problems confronting them at
the time. The most common problem for a politician is getting elected
again. It's the historians who decide after the fact that what they did was
just or unjust. Jesus isn't around to run anyone's government and the
church he left behind is just as messed up as any other government. They're
still carrying on the policies of Constantine some 1500 years later.
