    Here's the headline: Pope Philadelphia Visit 2015: Native Americans To Ask Francis To Renounce 'Doctrine of Discovery,' Past Crimes Committed By Catholic Church


    There is only one “Native American Leader” mentioned in the article, Oren Lyons, an Onendega Indian with a BFA. At least he served in the army. But why should he attack the pope when the worst possible treatment of American Indians came from British settlers and then the American government? If anything, Catholic missionaries did what they thought was right to make a better life for the Native Americans who came under their sphere of influence.


    Just more political correctness and an excuse to display more radicalism.


    It says more than 2 million people will be in Philadelphia for the pope's visit. Want to bet that the media concentrates on the very few protesters who will be there?

    This Pope is a dope, and deserves to be protested. I'll be happy when he's gone. Luckily he's old and likely will be gone in not too many years.

    Francis is, by far, the most honestly Christian leader the church as had in centuries.

    If you want to be picky about, what we've been told about what Jesus preached, He would be considered a rabid socialist today and Francis is only trying to follow His words.

    Papal Bull Dum Diversas

    “We weighing all and singular the premises with due meditation, and noting that since we had formerly by other letters of ours granted among other things free and ample faculty to the aforesaid King Alfonso -- to invade, search out, capture, vanquish, and subdue all Saracens and pagans whatsoever, and other enemies of Christ wheresoever placed, and the kingdoms, dukedoms, principalities, dominions, possessions, and all movable and immovable goods whatsoever held and possessed by them and to reduce their persons to perpetual slavery, and to apply and appropriate to himself and his successors the kingdoms, dukedoms, counties, principalities, dominions, possessions, and goods, and to convert them to his and their use and profit -- by having secured the said faculty, the said King Alfonso, or, by his authority, the aforesaid infante, justly and lawfully has acquired and possessed, and doth possess, these islands, lands, harbors, and seas, and they do of right belong and pertain to the said King Alfonso and his successors”.
