In front of San Francisco Church in Quito, Ecuador, with guide Dios. Church was built on native sacred site. Across Latin America Christians built Churches after destroying sacred sites of natives to show superiority of their god.
The guide told us the Christian conquerors would kill able-bodied men, rape the women and enslave the children. By the Book.
After destroying native sacred sites they would force the indigenous to build the Church as slaves to their "compassionate god."
The Church of "Iglesia de La Compania de Jesus" literally uses tons of gold. After a fire damaged it the Church used 5 tons of Gold for partial restoration. Calculate the wealth of the Church that can spend that much gold on one Church. Imagine how much they stole from natives.
The "Iglesia de La Compania de Jesus" or Gold church has graphic murals of "Hell." It has labels like "murder" and "rapist" on the denizens of hell. The irony is lost in a Church built by forced slave labor after mass murder, genocide and rape of natives. But "Jesus Saves."
Another mural has "god" sending dark-skinned natives to hell while their good white Christian conquerors (don't have photo of it, wasn't allowed)
Biblical racism. The only "superiority" of the Christian God was in the production of violence, justified by an immoral theology.
Ecuador remains 90% Christian, power of childhood Church indoctrination. Many native origin people are now Catholic, a Stockholm syndrome after centuries where native traditions were criminalized. The guide was Catholic. The violence evident in history is blamed on "Spaniards."
But that is disingenuous. Portuguese produced the same violence and genocides, as did the Belgians and French. They did this not because they were Portuguese and Spaniards but because the theology of exclusive salvation condemned all non-Christians to hell. Makes genocide moral.
Yes, that was their standard technique. Breaking temples, using stones to build the Church. Like barbaric tribes eating the heart of their enemies.
