Simon of Cyrene punished for his transgression of the law?

A certain man from Cyrene, Simon, the father of Alexander and Rufus, was passing by on his way in from the country, and they forced him to carry the cross.

(Mark 15:21)

If he was returning from the country, then he was a worker.

A worker during Passover.

But the Law prohibited the work during Passover.

Hence the Romans are Demiurge's tool to make it apply his law.
Nihil enim in speciem fallacius est quam prava religio. -Liv. xxxix. 16.
