The New World Holocaust!!

"From all this it is clear how a virtuous life in the preachers of the faith takes the place of miracles, so that unbelievers readily hear the words of life and see that it is reasonable to believe them, and thus finally they gain these men for Christ. But it will be just the opposite if their lives are stained by crime, especially by devastating their lands, by looting, invading and unjustly seizing the domains and properties of these same unbelievers. And if for this reason a countless number of them are killed and slaughtered, as we have always done and continue to do in the Indian lands of the west, nothing can be clearer than that we have become an effective obstacle to their conversion" (In Defense of the Indians, de Las Casas, p. 136).

This is a famous quote from Don Fray Bartolomé de Las Casas, the Defender of the New World people from his own rapacious countrymen. All we need to do to make it applicable to today is to change a few WORDS:

"But it will be just the opposite if their lives are stained by crime, especially by devastating their lands, by looting, invading and unjustly seizing the domains and properties of these same unbelievers. And if for this reason a countless number of them are killed and slaughtered, as we have always done and continue to do in IRAQ, nothing can be clearer than that we have become an effective obstacle to their conversion."

The Hounds of HELL!!

An open market displays quarters of Indians for sale as food for Spanish dogs. A familiar scene throughout the Caribbean region. The one depicted here is in Guatemala.


In order to whet the appetite of the fierce Spanish dogs for human flesh, New World natives were chopped up and fed to the dogs!!!!!

Fierce armoured Spanish hounds were set loose on the naked defenceless New World natives. In order to increase their appetite for human flesh, New World natives were constantly fed to these hellish hounds:

"But now I am going to tell of another action the Spaniards engage in which is perhaps even more ferocious and infernal than the one I have just recounted, and it still goes on at the present time. As has been said, the Spaniards train their fierce dogs to attack, kill and tear to pieces the Indians. It is doubtful that anyone, whether Christian or not, has ever before heard of such a thing as this. The Spaniards keep alive their dogs' appetite for human beings in this way. They have Indians brought to them in chains, then unleash the dogs. The Indians come meekly down the roads and are killed. And the Spaniards have butcher shops where the corpses of Indians are hung up, on display, and someone will come in and say, more or less,"Give me a quarter of that rascal hanging there, to feed my dogs until I can kill another one for them." As if buying a quarter of a hog or other meat.
Other Spaniards go hunting with their dogs in the mornings and when one of them returns at noon and is asked "Did you have good hunting?" he will reply, "Very good! I killed fifteen or twenty rascals and left them with my dogs" (de Las Casas, Devastation of the Indies, p. 127).

No wonder the President of Venezuela said that Columbus was "worse than Hitler." It is difficult for us to call the followers of Columbus "KNIGHTS" because a Knight in the English language implies a person with some chivalry, courage, decency and honor....Caballero is the Spanish equivalent of Knight.

The English Encounter with the New World Natives

How vastly different was the English encounter with the New World natives. Because of the discovery of the New World by John Cabot, God chose the United Kingdom to Christianize and civilize ALL the New World people.

The last Thursday in November is a national holiday in the U.S. It is named Thanksgiving Day in honor of the Pilgrims who sailed from England in the Mayflower and landed at Plymouth Rock, Massachusetts in 1620.

The Pilgrims were sent out by that great Scot King James VI & I. They were the CHOSEN PEOPLE and unlike the Spanish they came to seek God . . . and not GOLD....As a result, God gave them the BEST land in the world as their heritage.

For the previous 100 years, the English tried to colonize the land that was discovered by John Cabot. The numerous settlements in Virginia were wiped out by the Spanish Inquisition.

It was now about 100 years since the start of the Glorious Reformation, a Protestant king from Scotland was monarch of England and under his sponsorship the masterpiece of English literature was produced called the Authorized or King James Version of the Bible.

The mighty Spanish empire upon which the sun never set was greatly weakened by the defeat of the Spanish Armada and the loss of the Netherlands. It was now time for God to plant a small outpost of His kingdom in the New World.

The Mayflower Compact

"In the name of God, Amen. We, whose names are underwritten, the Loyal Subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord, King James, by the Grace of God, of England, France and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith, e&.

Having undertaken for the Glory of God, and Advancement of the Christian Faith, and the Honour of our King and Country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the northern parts of Virginia; do by these presents, solemnly and mutually in the Presence of God and one of another, covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil Body Politick, for our better Ordering and Preservation, and Furtherance of the Ends aforesaid; And by Virtue hereof to enact, constitute, and frame, such just and equal Laws, Ordinances, Acts, Constitutions and Offices, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the General good of the Colony; unto which we promise all due submission and obedience.

In Witness whereof we have hereunto subscribed our names at Cape Cod the eleventh of November, in the Reign of our Sovereign Lord, King James of England, France and Ireland, the eighteenth, and of Scotland the fifty-fourth. Anno Domini, 1620."

New World natives and Christian pilgrims shared a Thanksgiving feast together.


The New World natives welcomed the Pilgrims and taught them to grow various crops. After surviving the first harsh winter the Pilgrims gave thanks to God for the new land and the freedom from persecution.

Nov. 5th was called Pope Day in the British Colonies!!

Because of the St. Bartholomew's Day massacre, the Spanish Armada and the Gunpowder Plot, the Pilgrim Fathers hated Rome. Guy Fawkes Day on Nov. 5th was called POPE DAY in the British Colonies and was celebrated with bonfires, parades, and effigies of the Pope and the devil were burned in the pyres.

The Devastation of the Indies

Most of the New World natives in the South were not able to celebrate Thanksgiving. The vast majority of them were DEAD.... killed by the wars and diseases of the Spanish conquistadors.

They could not welcome the true Gospel brought by the Pilgrims because the Spanish Inquisition swept over the New World like a plague of locusts leaving only a desert and a wilderness in its aftermath.

Most of the New World people in the South could not feast and celebrate because they were in the land of the dead....exterminated by the ruthless Spanish conquistadors. Here is a book by an EYE-WITNESS to this Holocaust and genocide and he was not an enemy of Spain . . . but a bishop in good standing with the Hierarchy:

The Devastation of the Indies by Fray Bartolomé de Las Casas.


Fray Bartolomé de Las Casas (1474-1566).

Bartolomé was a Catholic priest and later bishop of Chiapas in Mexico. He was an advocate for the New World people and tried to prevent the Holocaust and genocide by the only weapon at his disposal —the pen.

If it wasn't for the diabolical Inquisition, he would have been the Spanish Martin Luther and would have reformed the Spanish church to the doctrines of its founder—the Apostle Paul!!

The following images are from the book Devastation of the Indies Illustrated

Hispaniola had 3 million people when Las Casas arrived there in 1502. 40 years later only 200 where left!!

"Yet into this sheepfold, into this land of meek outcasts there came some Spaniards who immediately behaved like ravening wild beasts, wolves, tigers, or lions that had been starved for many days. And Spaniards have behaved in no other way during the past forty years, down to the present time, for they are still acting like ravening beasts, killing, terrorizing, afflicting, torturing, and destroying the native peoples, doing all this with the strangest and most varied new methods of cruelty, never seen or heard of before, and to such a degree that this Island of Hispaniola, once so populous (having a population that I estimated to be more than three millions), has now a population of barely two hundred persons" (Devastation of the Indies, p. 29).

Padre de Las Casas said that more than 15 million died on the mainland in 40 years!!

"As for the vast mainland, which is ten times larger than all Spain, even including Aragon and Portugal, containing more land than the distance between Seville and Jerusalem, or more than two thousand leagues, we are sure that our Spaniards, with their cruel and abominable acts, have devastated the land and exterminated the rational people who fully inhabited it. We can estimate very surely and truthfully that in the forty years that have passed, with the infernal actions of the Christians, there have been unjustly slain more than twelve million men, women, and children. In truth, I believe without trying to deceive myself that the number of the slain is more like fifteen million" (Devastation of the Indies, pp 30-31).

Father Bartolomé was very kind to the cruel conquiestadors however because the pre-Columbian population of South America was about one hundred million —100,000,000. Only about 10 million remainded after 40 years!!

"A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them" (Joel 2:3).


"[The Spaniards] took babies from their mothers' breasts, grabbing them by the feet and smashing their heads against rocks. . . . They built a long gibbet, low enough for the toes to touch the ground and prevent strangling, and hanged thirteen [natives] at a time in honor of Christ Our Saviour and the twelve Apostles. . . . Then, straw was wrapped around their torn bodies and they were burned alive."

"As the Spaniards went with their war dogs hunting down Indian men and women, it happened that a sick Indian woman who could not escape from the dogs, sought to avoid being torn apart by them, in this fashion: she took a cord and tied her year-old child to her leg, and then she hanged herself from a beam. But the dogs came and tore the child apart; before the creature expired, however, a friar baptized it."

"They would cut an Indian's hands and leave them dangling by a shred of skin. . . [and] they would test their swords and their manly strength on captured Indians and place bets on the slicing off of heads or the cutting of bodies in half with one blow. . . . [One] cruel captain traveled over many leagues, capturing all the Indians he could find. Since the Indians would not tell him who their new lord was, he cut off the hands of some and threw others to the dogs, and thus they were torn to pieces."

"The Spanish treated the Indians with such rigor and inhumanity that they seemed the very ministers of Hell, driving them day and night with beatings, kicks, lashes and blows, and calling them no sweeter names than dogs. . . . Women who had just given birth were forced to carry burdens for the Christians and thus could not carry their infants because of the hard work and weakness of hunger. Infinite numbers of these were cast aside on the road and thus perished."

"They threw into those holes all the Indians they could capture of every age and kind.. . . Pregnant and confined women, children, old men [were] left stuck on the stakes, until the pits were filled. . . . The rest they killed with lances and daggers and threw them to their war dogs who tore them up and devoured them."

"Because he did not give the great quantity of gold asked for, they burned him and a number of other nobles and caciques . . . with the intention of leaving no prince or chieftain alive in the entire country."

"When the Spaniards had collected a great deal of gold from the Indians, they shut them up in three big houses, crowding in as many as they could, then set fire to the houses, burning alive all that were in them, yet those Indians had given no cause nor made any resistance."

"With my own eyes I saw Spaniards cut off the nose, hands and ears of Indians, male and female, without provocation, merely because it pleased them to do it. . . . Likewise, I saw how they summoned the caciques and the chief rulers to come, assuring them safety, and when they peacefully came, they weretaken captive and burned."
