Steven Newcomb Meets The Pope, Papal Bull And Subjugated Native Nations


The Dehumanizing Native Nations Scam Based On The Bible And Christianity

by Thomas Ivan Dahlheimer

In 1992 Steven Newcomb and Birgil Kills Straight called upon Pope John Paul II to formally revoke the Inter Caetera papal bull of May 4, 1493. And on May 4, 2016 Mr. Newcomb met with Pope Francis to personally ask him to revoke the papal bull. One statement in this infamous 1493 papal bull reads: "Subjugate the barbaric nations [native nations] and bring them to the faith." Now, twenty one years later, the campaign that Newcomb and Kills Straight began is a global movement.

Steven Newcomb (Shawnee, Lenape) is co-founder and co-director of the Indigenous Law Institute and he is also a columnist for Indian Country Today Media Network (ICTMN), the world's largest Indian news source. ICTMN occasionally posts a selective comment or two on its articles. It often posts my submitted comments on Newcomb's articles. My 405 word comment (the only comment) on Newcomb's May 3, 2016 ICTMN article, an article that is, along with both a May 5th ICTMN article about Newcomb's meeting with Pope Francis, and another May 5th article about the global movement that Newcomb and Kills Straight began, are currently on the front page of ICTMN's website.

Newcomb's May 5th ICTMN article about his meeting with Pope Francis is titled: Face to Face with Pope Francis to Get the Inter Caetera Papal Bull Revoked. The May 5th ICTMN article about the global movement to get the Inter Caetera Papal Bull Revoked is titled: Joint Statement To The Pontifical Council For Justice And Peace. Newcomb's May 3rd ICTMN article is titled: Reconciliation and the Claim of Crown Sovereignty. My comment on it reads:

Good article Mr. Newcomb. You expressed in the article that (in part) "...the very basis of the assumption of 'sovereignty' over our nations and our territories is now revealed to be a scam based on the Bible and Christianity..." The Christians' Lord said [Num. 33:51] "You must drive all the natives of the land before you. If you do not drive the natives of the country before you then those who remain will become disgusting to your eyes and a thorn in your side. They will harass you in the land where you live, and I will deal with you as I meant to deal with them." The Christians' Lord also said [Psalm 2 KJV].."I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel." The god of the Bible said: "Slavery is an everlasting institution. Slaves are to obey their masters in everything." [LE 25:44-46, DT 15:17, EP 6:5, CN 3:22, TS 2:9, PE 2:18] Christopher Columbus and his men enslaved natives and worked them to death. Father Bartolome de Las Casas was the first European historian in the Americas. When referring to the European Christians' first forty years of genocidal behavior in the Americas he wrote: "They are still acting like ravening beasts, killing, terrorizing, afflicting, torturing, and destroying the native peoples, doing all this with the strangest and most varied new methods of cruelty, never seen or heard of before, and to such a degree that this Island of Hispaniola once so populous (having a population that I estimated to be more than three million), has now a population of barely two hundred persons." He also wrote: "They built a long gibbet, low enough for the toes to touch the ground and prevent strangling, and hanged thirteen [natives] at a time in honor of Christ Our Savior and the twelve Apostles. When the Indians were thus still alive and hanging, the Spaniards tested their strength and their blades against them, ripping chests open with one blow an exposing entrails, and there were those who did worse. Then, straw was wrapped around their torn bodies and they were burned alive." In 1670 the French philosopher Blaise Pascal wrote: "Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as they do when they do it from religious conviction.
