I really hate to rain on the parade here, as this Pope surely seems to be the real deal, and as many have mentioned, the "Best Pope Ever"- I could not agree more-He is absolutely astounding- But, the real skeleton in the closet here is this Popes absolute priority of denunciating the Papal Bulls/ Doctrine of Discovery- I didn't call it by the age old name "Christian" Doctrine of Discovery because I firmly believe Christ would have denounced the mere mention of such an atrocious idea over 2,000 years ago- This is NOT in any way to do with Christ, just A cruel idea cooked up by sanctimonious, hypocritical religious imposters called Popes for the financial gain of degenerate, depraved and hedonistic heads of state called "Royalty"-
These bulls instilled the Doctrine of Discovery, the papal sanctioning of "Religious enslavement and tyranny over non-Christians"-
"Refute the Doctrine of Christian Discovery: an Open Letter to Pope Francis"
"Our equally long campaign for a contemporary address to the 15th century papal bulls that supported slavery, death, torture and genocide is of even more concern. While the canonization of Padre Serra is an affront to Native people, it is more of a reflexion on the Church than us and will likely have no impact on our future. But the Doctrine of Christian Discovery that owes itself to those early papal edicts still lies at the foundation of laws and policies still affecting Native peoples around the world.
Repudiate, abolish and rescind those papal bulls. Your failure to do so forces us to deny the granting of your request for forgiveness".
"Doctrine of Discovery: A scandal in plain sight"
"The letter called on the pope to “formally and publicly repudiate and rescind the Dum Diversas Bull of 1452, and other related bulls, which grant the Pope’s blessing ‘to capture, vanquish, and subdue the Saracens, pagans, and other enemies of Christ and put them into perpetual slavery and to take all their possession and their property.’ We also call upon the Pope to repudiate and rescind the Inter Caetera Bull of 1493 that granted authority to Spain and Portugal to ‘take all lands and possessions’ so long as no other Christian ruler had previously claimed them. These bulls instilled the Doctrine of Discovery, the papal sanctioning of Christian enslavement and power over non-Christians.”
(Recently, Pope Francis asked forgiveness in South America “not only for the offenses of the church herself, but also for crimes committed against the native peoples during the so-called conquest of America.”)
