I asked him if Capitalism was a sin. “Sí,” he replied.

Friends,

Last week Pope Francis visited Canada to apologize and seek forgiveness for the crimes committed by the Catholic Church against the indigenous peoples of Canada. He called that practice of Christianity “evil.”

On the first day of his visit, I received an email from one of Canada’s most well known and beloved Native Canadians, the folksinger Buffy Sainte Marie. In her message, she explained why an apology isn’t enough.

So in this episode of Rumble, I ask the Pope to grant indigenous people everywhere a Papal Decree that’s long overdue.

— Mike
