The Catholics had a better idea. They determined they could control everyone by subterfuge; there was no point in having a free, independent knowledgeable people. This is also why they didn't allow everyone to learn how to read and write until the Scotsman (the neighbours to the Irish) instituted public education in the 1700's. Mother Mary and an untold number of saints; as an individual you are completely usless without a spirit guide.
The Catholics are arguably even worse than the Third Reich and Hitler's Germany. When the Jews, Gypsy's and invalids were being burned during the Holocaust most German citizens were completely unaware. They knew Hitler hated Jews and they knew they were being rounded up and shipped off to camps, but they didn't know, until the Second World War was over, the extent of the atrocities.
The Catholics have known now for dozens of years, decades, how awful their church and their churches leaders are and were, yet they still attend, repeating the time worn phrases back to the buggered Priest,
Priest: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. (making the sign of the cross)
Priest: The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
All: And also with you.
Yet today this still continues as if all the Catholics are as brainwashed as Patti Hurst who picked up a gun at the behest of her kidnappers and assisted in robbing a bank.
First nations men and women now begin their gatherings with a prayer to "Our Father, Our Lord" as if they have no concept of how brutalized their entire culture is at the hands of those who introduced this concept of a supreme God.
First Nation's people knew the real supreme force. It was life itself. When they killed an animal, when they cut down a tree, when they received anything of benefit, they thanked the life force energy that it came from. They did not kill or destroy without a specific need. The stories coming from all the peoples of the sacred circle speak to terrible consequences when one person or a group of people abused any life energy.
The Nass Valley (a northwest BC, Canada, native community) is a terrific example. The Volcanic eruption that destroyed their many villages is attributed to some young Nisga'a boys abusing spawning salmon. The story told is how they slit the backs of the Salmon and stuck burning sticks, like candles, in them and then laughed as they saw them swim. This is the lesson about respect for all life, every life, animate and non animate. The volcanic eruption and lava flow that destroyed their villages was the retribution. Never abuse any life force.
The Catholics, Jesuits, Protestants, Judaic/Talmudian and the Muslim can all learn from the original First nations, those they all wish to destroy.
