Doctrine of Discovery

Seeking the truth can be a very painful experience. Many of the things we have been taught are not true. The founding founders claimed to believe that all men were created equal, but their willingness to accept the Doctrine of Discovery tells a different story.

Pope Nicholas of the Catholic Church planted the seeds of White Supremacy when he issued a Papal Bull in 1453 that authorized the European Monarchs to to steal the lands they discovered around the world that were already occupied by non-Christian indigenous people.

This policy of the Catholic Church was later adopted by the Protestant Churches and was transported to the North American continent by the British colonists.

The Doctrine of Discovery could also be labeled the Doctrine of White Supremacy, The racism in the United States can be traced back to the racist policy endorsed by the Catholic and Christian Churches

For hundreds of years the Christian Churches in America have taught that white European male Christians were superior to the women, Native Americans and Non-Christians. The Doctrine Of Discovery was the foundation upon which the Christian churches used to justify Slavery in the United States,

How could the churches justify the treatment treatment of women, native Americans and Non-Christians?

Quakers were among the first white people to denounce slavery in the American colonies and Europe, and the Society of Friends became the first organization to take a collective stand against both slavery and the slave trade, later spearheading the international and ecumenical campaigns against slavery.
