The Role of the Roman Catholic Church in Slavery

sunnubian ·
The Role of the Roman Catholic Church in Slavery November 2, 2015 Editor Some historians argue that if churches had used their power, the Atlantic slave trade might have never occurred. By the same logic, others argue that the Catholic church and Catholic missionaries could have also helped to prevent the colonization and brutality of colonialism in Africa. However, history shows that the Catholic church did not oppose the institution of slavery until the practice had already become infamous...

You know...religion aside? I can't even get to understanding a "human" [male] subjegating another human [female] based on a two-thousand year spiritual conjecture. It was HUMANS who took over and destroyed African nations, it was HUMANS who took and destroyed Native American nations, where oh where is the so-called GOD in that? So until I get the reasonable humane answers to the WHYs...Africa will NEVER be free or regain what the riches she had before and the Latino/Hispanics population will...

Simply introducing Christianity to our slave ancestors may not have been such a bad thing ... but using abuse, torture and death to force the acceptance of it ... on people who already had/practiced their own form of "religion" is what makes our unwavering adherence to it all the more disgusting and inhumane, IMO.

Ummmm ... well, actually, I see it kind of differently, Sunnubian ... I don't see "religion" in and of itself, being anything necessarily bad. Pretty much all the religions that I have any personal knowledge of tend to have the same basic fundamental tenants: 1) There is a "God"/"Supreme Being" that it's centered around; 2) it has a set of "rules"/"laws" that govern it; and 3) there is some directive to somehow acknowledge/worship/show reverence to that "God"/"Supreme Being" in some way.

Correct.

@ Sista Sunnubian. Good info They need to plaster this on the Catholic Church wall [for blacks to see]. So African Americans can DECIDE whether or not if they REALLY wanna be Catholics let alone Christians. The only good thing about Christianity is it saved women and children from being sexually mutilated [FGM, castration] and held the mother Mary in high regard even though all the angels were deemed male until later on in the I think the 15th century. Other than that? It's been the slave...

Catholicism is a biggger problem for Africans on the Continent and Black people throughout the diaspora in places other than America. I say a 'bigger' problem for them, because, unlike with African America, the Catholic Church [the same entity that sanctioned enslaving Black people's ancestors ( in perpetuity) and for stealing Africans' land and wealth] has a stronghold in those places. But, since the majority of Africans, just like Black people throughout the diaspora, do not know their own...

They know that feelings of helplessness is solely related to being disenfranchised. The establishment and social elite have practiced it for centuries and noted the outcomes of those not included in the franchise. When were Blacks ever really wanted in the franchise, whatever pieces Blacks have was fought for. Blacks must create its own franchise, owning and maintaining our own because we as a people will never be welcomed into the establishment.
