Possibly an ancient mainframe, with less computing power than a $200 smartphone. Or some old Pentium 3 server running OS/2.

The civil political religion named Christianity is addicted to both political power and violence, and thus finds the message of Jesus offensive." https://www.patheos.com/blogs/former...it-looks-like/
