"Spanish zeal eventually enabled Catholicism to make great inroads into the New World. But in the process, New World Catholicism evolved into a religion that integrated aspects of indigenous beliefs into Catholic teachings and that adapted Christian concepts, images, and saints to local traditions."

South Dakota Boarding School Survivors Detail Sexual Abuse
In 2010, South Dakota legislators discussed the Church’s difficulty defending against these many suits and passed a statute—written by a Church attorney and submitted as a “constituent bill”—blocking anyone over 40 from suing an institution, such as the Catholic Church, for childhood sexual abuse, though they may still sue individual perpetrators.

Howard Wanna, 60, is an enrolled member of the Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate, whose homeland straddles North and South Dakota. He has terminal lung cancer and recently celebrated what doctors tell him will be his last birthday.

“When I first arrived at Tekakwitha at age four or five, the nuns and priests seemed welcoming, as though they wanted me to think of the place as my home. This friendliness went on for several weeks. Then one day, Father Pohlen came to the Papoose House, where I was living, and took me by the hand. He led me to the church, where we went behind the altar to a little room that had nothing in it but a chair.

“Father Pohlen sat me down, unzipped his pants, took his -------- to graphic to post on Topix ---------- I didn’t know what was happening. In later sessions, sometimes behind the altar and sometimes at his house,---------

“He rotated among about five of us younger boys, which left me with such confused emotions. On days it wasn’t my turn, I was so grateful, yet I felt terrible that one of my little friends was suffering. I also dreaded the fact that my day was coming again soon. Worst of all, I had no one to turn to, not even God, because God’s representative on earth was the one hurting me.

“[I believe] the Church caused the drinking and other problems former students experience. As a result, the tribe must sponsor chemical-dependency, suicide-prevention, anger-management, and many other programs, which is an enormous economic burden. At Sisseton Wahpeton, we just had three suicides, all youngsters in their 20s, and this happens frequently. Why? It’s the result of how we elders were treated as children—an effect that continues through the generations.

“I often wonder how so many pedophiles ended up at Native American schools. Father Pohlen was not only a pervert; he also hired the worst of the worst, which meant none of the Tekakwitha staff would protect us from the others. How did he find them? Is there someone in the Church you can call to request problem priests and nuns? Was there a dual plan to hurt Native Americans while taking care of the pedophiles? Was this genocide? It’s so confusing, but it’s also just plain evil.

I think people already explained this to you.. Even Fr Dye, a Catholic Priest took the time to set you straight, and you completely ignored him, opting instead to tell him what he believes. Lol
However... Hypothetically...suppose we did change our teaching on this, what's it to you? We are an organization that you do not belong to. We have our own rules, you have yours. Nobody is knocking at your door trying to forcefully give you Communion. Is this not a free country? Maybe we decided different (which we didn't) so what??Maybe we decided to do a "spin off" of Judaism. So what? Its none of you business.
So cut through the crap, we all know what this is about. We all know why you, Michael and June lash out at the Catholic Church. You're afraid; a fearful little baby who is internally bothered by the pillar and foundation of truth. You can't enjoy your retirements thinking about the "what if's". What if Jesus was who He claimed. What if He did start the Catholic Church and now your damned for trying to persecute it!! Chilling thought for you I bet.
Fear of that possibility is the only thing driving your obsessive compulsive anti Catholicism disorder.
Have a nice day!!
This is a public message board. If you don't want your delusions exposed by documented, real world facts, then don't come whining here.

Seek help elsewhere, or come to terms that your delusion is faith, not fact. Many people do and are still happy.

Once you figure that out, the anger will subside. And maybe you won't feel the need to go Westboro Baptist in us either.

Come to the light little cricket.

It was one of you guys that said America. And when someone says just the word America, one is lead to believe that your talking about USA. Now if your talking about the continent of North and South America you would call it the America's or North America....Why don't you Catholic's take claim for the birth of Jesus or 9/11....How about Adam and Eve...I bet you claim they were Catholic's also..

Nah. That's a myth. Erickson had a colony on North America long before Columbus ever even had any dreams. His brother was shot through the heart and buried there.
Columbus landed in Jamaica and S. America....but China was there long long before even that--like 10's of thousands of years. And there were others before that, but the land they came from is now gone. It was the land where your (all) religion actually originated. I realize no one wants to hear that, but it is what it is...just like the Columbus rewrite of history.
Now your talking. And that's exactly how I learned it.but you wont see the ole Vikings getting any credit because their not catholic..lol

Indeed! That is the stranglehold religio-politico have ushered over societies for ages. If you can subvert the minds and mentality of the masses, you have effectively succeeded in erasing and rewriting the past to foster your position in the "now" and establish your prominence of paradigm for the future.

Acccording to Merriam-Webster, plagiarism is to "use (another's production) without crediting the source".

You don't have to deny being a thief to be a thief; that would just make you a liar as well as a thief.

You weren't born Catholic in your belief. Your parents were Catholic and they indoctrinated you into Catholicism.

Had your parents been Muslim ... you would have been indoctrinated as a Muslim.

You just don't want to accept that as fact ... and that is your problem.

Wacky theology

Adam and Eve could not have been Catholics ... as they never lived in a era when they could have been saved by Jesus ... the Catholic.

It was the Spanish Catholics that brought the Catholic faith to America. Amen and period !!

Research and archaeology is leading to the actuality of it...unlike unsubstantiated "belief". Contrary to your "paradigm" of everything is just a made up belief, it relies upon actual peer reviewed historical "evidence" to construct(reconstruct) the timeline and events .
However, you are free to believe whatever in ignorance.
