    1. Yes. We do. Sad. Pastor Rob Lee had the courage to stand up for what is right and now he has no job. He is brave and courageous. Hopefully with Online exposure he will be invited to be Pastor of another more progressive church.

  1. A similar but not the same http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-09-07/fight-for-copyright-continues-from-namatjiras-family/8881474 Albert Namatjira’s a famous indigenous artist had the copywrite of his works sold by legend press in the Northern territory. The Albert Namatjira’s family have been fighting to get the copywrite back. There are so many dollars that could be going into the Indigenous community in Hermannsburg Northern territory https://www.google.com/maps/place/Hermannsburg+NT+0872,+Australia/@-23.9333,132.7667,5z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x2b3041b4c49cf775:0x40217a82a254030!8m2!3d-23.943056!4d132.777778

    1. Yes Dear friend. So true. Native Americans have been murdered and cheated out of their lands by those calling themselves Christians. Whole tribes were wiped out by European diseases. Thanks for your contribution.

    2. Thank you for your contribution. Native Americans have been murdered, abused and cheated out of their Native Lands, artifacts and killed by infectious diseases brought by Europeans. Sad to say but Euro-Centric Christianity has caused more destruction in both the Native American and African American communities and is the cause behind the racial strife in America. Just think, the KKK, Neo-Nazis, Fundamentalists and Evangelicals all call themselves Christians. However they are all bent on destroying or deporting communities of Color. I appreciate your addition to this conversation.
