American Was Founded As A White Racist And Christian Religious Bigoted Nation
by Thomas Ivan Dahlheimer
When Obama was President he said, during a National prayer breakfast: "In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often
was justified in the name of Christ." Today, Confederate monuments are coming
down across the U.S.A.
. What's next? What I would like to see next are statues of Christopher Columbus and Christian crosses coming
down all across the U.S.A..
When Columbus sailed across the Atlantic Ocean and first set foot on a Native occupied and
owned island in the Western Hemisphere he performed a ceremony to take possession of (or steal) these
Native people's land for the Spanish Monarchy, acting under the international laws of Western Christendom.
A growing number of people are becoming aware that his act of "taking possession" of these Native people's
land was based on a Christian doctrine that had been transformed into an international legal construct, now
known as the Doctrine
of Discovery, a Doctrine used to "justify" the founding of the U.S.A.
. And more and more people are also realizing that today - five centuries later - the United States
government still uses this evil Christian doctrine to deny the rights of this land's Native peoples.
Forty years before Columbus' historic voyage in 1452, Pope Nicholas V issued to King Alfonso V of Portugal
Romanus Pontifex, declaring war against all non-Christians throughout the world,
and specifically sanctioning and promoting the conquest, colonization, and exploitation of non-Christian nations and their
territories. I believe that the Bible scripture Psalms 79:6 was used to "justify" this Papal Bull. It reads:
"Pour out thy wrath upon the heathen that have not known thee, and upon the kingdoms that have not
called upon thy name.
Pope Nicholas V directed King Alfonso V to "capture, vanquish, and subdue the saracens, pagans, and other
enemies of Christ," to "put them into perpetual slavery," and "to take all their possessions and property."
Old and New Testament Bible scriptures condone slavery. The Bible is full of hate speech. And modern-day
scientific discoveries have proven that the Garden of Eden story in the Bible is a myth. Evidence of one
of these discoveries can be found in a National Geographic YouTube video entitled Scientific Adam and Eve
Some first century people mistakenly took the Garden of Eden story literally and then used it to
establish the Christian religion's central foundational doctrine on. I believe that Christianity is a false, hateful
and anti-science religion and that it needs to quickly come to an end.

several US cities that monuments to Columbus should be taken down because of the explorer's brutal treatment of

. Here is an excerpt from this article: European countries in general have seen substantial declines, but it is
the Netherlands leading the way. The Catholic Church predicts that two-thirds of its churches will be retired
from holy service within a decade and 700 Protestant churches are expected to be decommissioned within four years.
While the U.S. has avoided a similar wave of church closings for now, recent trends lead religious researchers to
say the country could face the same problem in coming years.

as if the destructive legacy of the Spanish Catholic system of domination is something to celebrate." ... "Monuments to White Christian
Supremacy in places such as Virginia and Louisiana are now being regarded by many people as unacceptable. So why are monuments to
White Christian Supremacy (e.g., the Spanish ship San Salvador and statues of Cabrillo and Junipero Serra) still considered
acceptable in San Diego, and throughout California?" [And also, I ask, why is a monument to White Christian Supremacy (e.g., a statue
