It is also worth noting that what became Christianity had very little to do with Jesus. It is mostly based on the teachings of Paul (aka Saul of Tarsus).

I agree it became very repressive, but I would ascribe a lot of that to it becoming the Roman state religion. That spread it far and wide, but it became a conservative agent of state power in the process.
