Christopher Columbus



America was discovered by a Roman Catholic by the name of Christopher Columbus.  Did they teach you that in the history books?  If not, now is the time to learn the truth.

Columbus, the Christ-bearer: Did you Know?

“The crew was afraid that Columbus' stupidity would get them killed. They were reluctant to sign on only until a local patron, Martin Pinzon, signed up to captain one of the ships, then there was no problem at all getting a crew.”~Creationist Lies by Kent Hovind.

Columbus fools the Native American people into thinking that he was a God, and upon his return he applies to the Papacy in Rome [Pope Alexander VI for control of the new lands he found on behalf of the King and Queen, which is basically a license to steal anything that is not owned by a Christian nation or people]
His request is granted and the King and Queen of Spain are given permission to spread Christianity amongst the natives. He made a total of four trips to the New World and attempted to convert the natives to Christianity, but the brutal treatment by the Europeans did not go well with the natives. One does not read of “… Papal Rome has shed the blood of sixty-eight millions of the human race in order to establish her unfounded claims to religious dominion.” ~The Glorious Reformation by S. S. Schumucker, D. D., Discourse in Commemoration of the Glorious Reformation of the Sixteenth Century; delivered before the Evangelical Lutheran Synod of West Pennsylvania, by the Rev. S. S. Schmucker, D.D., Professor of Theology in the Theological Seminary at Gettysburg. Published by Gould and Newman. 1838, citing Dr. Brownlee’s Popery An Enemy To Civil Liberty, p. 105.

If one wants the truth about Catholic History then they need to go to catholic sources. I suggest you read this if you want to know the truth: Christopher Columbus and His Dream:

A man's religious beliefs sets the seal of his heart, forms his character, and directs his every action. In short, a man's religion and the devotion it inspires is the history of his story and the story behind the story of history.

"Christopher Columbus had a mystic belief that God intended him to sail the Atlantic Ocean in order to spread Christianity. He said his prayers several times daily. Columbus wrote what he called a Book of Prophecies, which is a compilation of passages Columbus selected from the Bible which he believed were pertinent to his mission of discovery. ... Columbus's own writings prove that he believed that God revealed His plan for the world in the Bible, the infallible Word of God. Columbus believed that he was obeying the mission God staked out for his life when he set sail west across the Atlantic Ocean."
