Skarpi, this is a setup right ? Surely they make you read the following passage in the Islendingabók from the time you are small:

"[A.D. 1000] It was made law that all should be Christians, and they should take baptism who were as yet unbaptized here in the land. But with respect to the exposure of infants the ancient laws should stand, and so with the eating of horseflesh. Men might sacrifice secretly if they wished, but it would be a case for the lesser outlawry if witness was brought forward to it. But a few winters later this heathendom was done away with like the rest."
