I think that Serra was, you know, an accomplice and co-conspirator to rape, land theft, torture, murder. I think that he’s just as bad as Hitler. I mean, some people might not understand the comparison, but he was a man with a vision and kept nothing—nothing—in the way of making that vision happen, didn’t care how many thousands of people that he hurt. He had a vision, he had a plan, he executed it.

The irony does not go unnoticed that here the Pope now proposes to elevate Serra to sainthood and yet, many know him to be a monster who separated, butchered and maimed Native families - all in the name of Christ, military and progress.
Quotes from the news wire:
The pope stating that this person is someone saintly, or someone to be looked up to, or even revered or prayed to is giving the international message that what happened (to indigenous people), was by divine right, thousands, hundreds of thousands of people were killed all in the name of Catholicism and progress, so to speak.
