Saint Christopher Columbus

I know that this will fall on deaf eyes however,
 'Right' will always be 'Right'!
And 'Wrong will always be 'Wrong'!
I must do this or you would not believe that it is my posting?

I have a little bone to pick with the new Catholic Pope.

Pope Frances, came to our land in the East Coast of Indian Country uninvited by the first people of the land and Canonized an Indian Butcher of thousands of California Indians and Mexican Natives!
Monday is once again a day that Catholic's and Christians in this land choose to celebrate Christopher Columbus, a "Christian" uninvited visitor to this hemisphere and the butchering of thousands of the 'First People' in South America!
At the very least, the Christian, Catholic, Pope, should have gone to the West Coast of Indian Country and Canonized ' Saint Christopher Columbus' a Christian?

At the time of the birth of Columbus, that area was of the Catholic Religion?

Columbus was not the first European explorer to reach the Americas,

(having been preceded by the Norse expedition led by Leif Ericson in the 11th century).
Leif Ericson
Christopher Columbus voyages led to the first lasting European contact with the Americas.

Inaugurating a period of European exploration, conquest, and colonization that lasted for several centuries.

Columbus spearheaded the transatlantic slave trade.

Has been accused by several historians of initiating the genocide of the Hispaniola natives.

Columbus himself saw his accomplishments primarily in the light of spreading the Christian religion!
