Christopher Columbus the Holy Admiral

Dozens of US cities have cancelled Columbus Day, replacing it with “indigenous people’s day.” But what exactly does that celebrate? Prior to Columbus’ arrival, the Americas were filled with slavery, war, immorality, worship of demons, and even cannibalism and human sacrifice. It was no Eden. When one studies original sources (from Columbus and his contemporaries), one is invariably struck by Columbus’ evident piety. It is clear that he was motivated by the goal of helping save souls, a love for the Church and her holy places, and the desire of exalting God’s honor. Yet today’s revisionist historians, filled with liberal and marxist ideology, want us to hate our past so as to reject our Christian heritage. By controlling the past they seek to control the present. We have to counter this revolution. Let us insist upon the present necessity for Christ by faithfully remembering the glories of our Christian past.
