Columbus, having quit the profession of slave trading to become an explorer, sailed for the new world in 1492. Within hours of landing, Columbus had kidnapped 6 natives in order to "Christianize" them and make them his servants. Columbus incorrectly reported that the inhabitants of the New World had no religion. After planting a cross, Columbus would say the "Requerimiento", a prayer that officially made the newly found lands Catholic. Since nobody present objected (the natives did not speak Latin), the new world became officially the domain of the Catholic church. Over the next hundred years, thousands of Indians were burned to death for offending Christians.
A hundred Indians bundled together and set on fire by the Christian Conquistadores.
On Hispaniola alone, 50,000 Arawaks were killed, the rest were sent into slavery. Chief Hatuey declared that if heaven is where Christians go, that he would prefer to live in hell. He was burned alive for heresy. What happened to his people was described by an eyewitness: "The Spaniards found pleasure in inventing all kinds of odd cruelties ... They built a long gibbet, long enough for the toes to touch the ground to prevent strangling, and hanged thirteen [natives] at a time in honor of Christ Our Savior and the twelve Apostles... then, straw was wrapped around their torn bodies and they were burned alive." (Typical behavior for Marrano Jew Devils)
In the true spirit of fawning at the feet of psychos, American doth do honor to a world class version, in the memory and emulation of the Marrano Jew Devil Psychopath, Chrisberg Colombo.
October 10th was recognized as "Columbus Day" on our calendars! --- PHB
