Why can't anyone who is a Christian or at least is familiar with the new Testament bring themselves to repudiate the Catholic Church and those other sects for the horrible things they did-and still do ? And yes, there is no clear response to the request to revoke that Inter Caetera, certainly no commitment to DEACTIVATE that clause-so it is still active until revoked formally, right ? Columbus was afraid to confront Mongol troops guarding Silk Road checkpoints in the 1400's, but by 1492, there was both a civil war between Kublai Khan's descendants for power, and the Yuan Dynasty had been overthrown. but Columbus wasn't aware of those events then, and simply went forward based on Marco Polo's journals. He actually would have encountered Turks if he went by the land route. Considering the inroads that Europe AND the old colonial powers are making into this continent once again-(thank you George W. for helping them destroy this nation's economy while you were at it)- please take note of overseas events, and even foreign soldiers permanently housed here,mostly Europeans BTW.
