He was a man of the cloth THAT WAS PRESENT WITH CHRIS ON THE LAND OF THE INDIGENOUS PEOPLE.
And he wrote about it all.
"Welp. He didn't know better."
"That's just what they did back then."
"You can't judge 1492 #ChristopherColumbus by our present day standards"

(*stares blankly @ "Christians"*)
Let's be clear, they should have waved & left.
The point of this is to make you aware that there is PRIMARY HISTORICAL RECORD that #Columbus' sadism was seen as heinous by some EVEN IN HIS OWN TIME.
Does that mean we should ignore his record?
