Spanish conquistadors (“conquerers”) came to the New World in search of “God, Gold and Glory”. God = spread Christianity. Gold = obtain wealth. Glory = become world famous for themselves and their country.
However, once the Spanish arrived in the Americas their behavior did not match the teachings of Christ. The mistreatment, enslavement, rape and murder of Native Americans go directly against the tenets of the Christian faith.
Imagine you are a Spanish priest that can see the hypocrisy of this behavior. You are writing a short letter (start a NEW blog post) to the King and Queen of Spain to ask for help. What would you say?
