Canadian government apologizes for allowing Christian abuse of Native population

The Canadian government, following in the footsteps of the New Zealand and Australian governments, today apologized for having institutionalized Christian missionaries’ abuse of their Native populations. See Canada apologizes for failing natives

Just as in the US, which has so far refused to apologize for much of anything in its bloody and racist history, the Christian churches of Canada were used as a government tool to stamp out the culture and languages of the indigenous populations. The Christan religious fanatics were used as agents of government planned and sponsored genocide.

Will the churches themselves ever offer an apology? One rather doubts it. Many of the Christian Right are most willing ‘little Eichmann’s’ in more than just a few ways. I guess that much more can be said about them here in Colorado Springs…. land of the dead Native.
