Christian rune stones and Christian/pagan relations

Matt Stone writes about Christian rune stones in Scandinavia, and the implication that Christians and pagans coexisted quite happily.

I have written elsewhere about the hostility between Christians and pagans that has developed in the West over the last 30 years or so, so that people find it difficult to understand some things written not much longer ago than that, such as some of the references to pagan deities and demigods in C.S. Lewis's Narnia stories. How much more difficult, then, to understand things written a thousand years earlier.
