Indian nations ask Pope Francis to rescind Doctrine of Discovery
« on: December 30, 2018, 09:14:42 AM »

The Doctrine of Discovery, Pope Alexander VI's papal bull, permits any Christian coming upon land inhabited by non-Christians to claim it all. It was published on May 4, 1493, and on May 7, 2018, representatives from the Confederacy of Haudenosaunee, the Assembly of First Nations Canada, Canada's Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the Yakima nation visited the Vatican to request a retraction.

You donít know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind
