At no time did the Roman empire ban religion. However they insisted that everyone sacrifice to the Emperor as a god.

Christians however were persecuted for not sacrificing to the Emperor as their religion was seen as "just a cult" and everyone on all the other "cults" their members had no problem with worshiping the Emperor in addition to the Gods of their "cult". The Romans never banned Christianity, but because of the persecution for not worshiping the Emperor they had to meet in secret.
