Pope Francis’ first ‘Holy Act’ during his visit to United States was to canonize the mass killer Padre Junipero Serra for spreading Christianity among the Native Americans by sword and bullet. Thousands of Catholics cheered Francis at Catholic University in Washington on Wednesday for bestowing Sainthood on Californian ‘Catholic hero’.
On Sunday, however, the ‘Holy Spirit’ spoke. Padre Junipero Serra’s statue adorning his grave at the Carmel Mission in Carmel, California, was found in a pool of green paint with Saint of Genocide written on the headstone.
According to officials at the Catholic Mission, it’s the first time the statue has been defaced. They believe it’s result of Pope Francis’ elevation of Serra to Sainthood. This has opened colonial wounds among the descendants of the Native Americans whose population has been reduced from over 80 million to a few million since Christopher Columbus accidentally discovered Americana over 600-year ago.
Anyone familiar how Francis along with his friendly rabbis collaborated with Argentine military junta in the past, is not surprised with his admiration for a fellow Jesuit butcher.
American historian and investigative journalist, Robert Barsocchini, has written an excellent satire based on Serra’s Sainthood, comparing him with ISIS “Caliph” Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. According to a French Report, al-Baghdadi aka Simon Elliot was born in a Jewish family and trained by Israeli Mossad before joining anti-Assad Wahabis butchers in Syria.
“Pope Francis announced this week his decision to proceed with the canonization of the Islamic missionary Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. A controversial figure, according to the Washington Post established “Islamic missions – as he marched North with conquistadors.” a statue of Baghdadi, note the Post, was recently erected, in the Saudi Capitol (Riyadh),” Barsocchini said.
