    SG2, thank you for your article posting of these wonderful First people who lost their land and faced genocide at the hands of European Americans who wrongly used religion to call it Manifest Destiny.

    The EVIL Doctrine of Discovery issued by the Catholic Church in 1452/3 :

    The origin of the doctrine goes back to the papal bulls issued by Pope Nicholas V in 1452 and 1455 respectively, allowing the invasion and killing of the Indigenous Peoples.

    These historical church documents titled Dum Diversas and Romanus Pontifex called for non-Christian people to be captured, vanquished and to have their possessions and property seized by the Christian monarchs.

    On basis of the same historical precedence the statement points out that, “Christopher Columbus was instructed, for example, to ‘discover and conquer,’ ‘subdue’ and ‘acquire’ distant lands.”
