Hypocrisy of Progressives’ Concern for Human Life; las Casas, Defender Of Native Americans

Bartolomé de Las Casas (1484-1566) was a controversial Spanish Dominican friar who revealed the atrocities of the conquests of New Spain and Peru and who strove to protect the basic rights of indigenous peoples in the Spanish Empire. For this reason, Las Casas is often called the ‘Defender of the Indians’.

Bartomomè de las Casas, as vividly as any figure in the great Christian tradition, shows that a commitment to justice is an essential dimension of Christian discipleship. You simply cannot claim to be a follower of Jesus and remain indifferent to suffering and injustice. Even when many of the leaders of both Church and state were more than content to countenance the oppression of the Native Americans, las Casas in the name of Jesus, said no. Bishop Robert Barron, Pivotal Players

When so many in Europe were more than willing to see the the conquered Indians as little more than pack animals to be exploited and enslaved, las Casas insisted that the rights of the Indians be respected and their dignity upheld. And this conviction was not simply expressive of a deeply felt humanism; it was the fruit of Christian mysticism and spirituality.

Las Casas anticipated by four centuries many of the key features of Catholic social teaching: the dignity of each individual (inside the womb and out,) a people’s right to self-determination, the moral superiority of democracy and the prohibition of against all forms of coercion on matters of religion.his shout against injustice still echoes in our consciences to this day.  Bishop Robert Barron, Pivotal Players

The people who canceled Columbus Day because the Spanish Conquistadors were too cruel to the Native Americans, now are even more savage, barbaric and depraved promoting human sacrifice usng the Biggest and Loudest Boom Box in the World, X, formerly known as Twitter. 

 Killing babies inside or outside the womb is no different than the widely condemned abominable practice of human sacrifice by the Native Americans that even leading philosopher and theologian Juan Ginés de Sepulveda, reached beyond Aristotle to the Old Testament to justify the enslavement and extermination of those who practiced idolatry and child sacrifice.

An estimated 27% of human trafficking victims are children.  While the Philippines is one of the largest known sources of children exploitation, California, has consistently had the highest number of human trafficking cases in the US. Ghislaine Maxwell was sentenced to 20 years in prison for the sex-trafficking ring of young teens she helped financier Jeffrey Epstein run for a decade.Yet, not a single John has been publicly identified.

One in nine children are abused in public schools, yet the Teachers Unions believe the children belong to the state.  See for example 4th Circuit ruled parents cannote challenge district’s policy of gender affinity without parental notification. Dissenting judge calls ruling an “abdication of judicial duty” Most teachers agree with dissenting judge.

These are the same people who argue for tight gun control legislation allegedly because of concerns for human.  Any time there’s  a mass shooting, it  is another chance to express righteous indignation.  Another photo op.  Another opportunity to see who comes up with the most shocking headlines – using children as props to denounce violence against children, for example. Another chance to score political points.  Fox News’ Gabriel Hayes reported that ” several major U.S. newspapers – and their corresponding websites – hardly mentioned, or outright ignored, the attempted assassination of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on the front pages of their Thursday morning editions,” while Michael Nobles in a post in the  simpliliberty.com  blog writes: “Many news networks on June 12 omitted mention of the recent attempted murder of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, even though some touched on issues facing the nation’s top court. All Sunday morning shows on CNN, CBS, NBC, and ABC did not cover the attempted killing, which took place on June 8, 2022.

But the blood spilled on the streets as a result of progressive policies, is the same color as soft-on-crime prosecutors and elected officials, and the FBI normalizing high crime rate:  The FBI’s own Hate Crime Statistics Report show who is more likely to commit a hate crime. It shows that parents who show up at school board meetings are not likely to be terrorists.

Neither are Mass-attending Catholics, or those who display patriotic symbology  or Pro-Life Advocates.

Nevertheless, Attorney General Garland sends the FBI to “protect” school boards and spy on Catholics.  The FBI knows which public officials spew hate and call for violence against the police:    Mr Anh Le was savagely beaten with a bat by two people in Chinatown. Despite the high Hate Crime rate in the city, The San Francisco DA plea-deal so the  perpetrators did no get jail time – he had to sue to get justice.

Or consider the two rioters who were responsible for burning down the Wendy’s in Atlanta during the BLM riots pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit arson and two counts of first-degree arson. Their punishment? Chisom Kingston and Natalie White will have to pay a $500 fine, 150 hours of community service and 5 years of probation. For reference, this is the same Fulton County where President Donald Trump was charged with 13 felony counts and facing a maximum of 76.5 years in prison.  
Nancy Pelosi’s favorite slogan The No One Is Above The Law has become a meaningless buzzword

The blood spilled by rockets in war zones, enabled by progressive policies Is the same color: 5.5M killed in Congo, 500K killed in Syria, 500K killed in Sudan, 400K killed in Yemen, 300K killed in Iraq, 250K killed in Afghanistan, 20K killed in Gaza: 200K Russian and Ukranian soldiers killed and or wounded and 30% of Ukranians displaced.

Yhe same color as blood spilled when killing a baby inside or outside the womb. Forty to 60 million unborn children have died since RvW, mostly of color: Black Genocide.

Black Genocide

Bartomomè de las Casas,  reminds us  the great Christian tradition, that a commitment to justice is an essential dimension of Christian discipleship. You simply cannot claim to be a follower of Jesus and remain indifferent to suffering and injustice. It reminds us of the Hypocritical Progressives Concern for Human Life
