In 1453 the King of Portugal convinced Pope Nicholas of the Catholic Church to issue an edict that bcame known as the Doctrine of Discovery.
The truth is often very painful to accept, but iti is a fact that that a Papal Bull by Pope Nicholas of the Catholic Church proclaimed that the European Christian Monarchs had authority from God to seize the land and enslave the non-Christian people that possessed the lands they discovered.
This doctrine justified slavery and was responsible for the death of millions of the Native Americans. The Christian Churches support of slavery in America violated the principles of the God they professed to believe in.
Without the support of the Christian Churches slavery in the United States would never had been tolerated. Rather than promoting liberty, equality and justice, the Christian Churches promoted inequality and the superiority of the white race.
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 Discover tells a totally different story.
Pope Nicholas of the Catholic Church planted the seeds of White Supremacy when he issued a Papal Bull in 1453 that authorized European Monarchs to to steal the land, they discovered that were already occupied by non-Christian inhabitants.
This policy of the Catholic Church was later adopted by the Protestant Churches and was transported to the North American continent by the British Colonies .
The Doctrine of Discovery assumed that European Christians were superior and had a right to
to vanquish and enslave the non-Christians that occupied the land they had stolen.
The racism in the United States can be traced back to the racist policy endorsed by the Catholic and Christian Churches support of the Doctrine of Discovery.
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.
