State Media: 'Kaluhyanu;wes Michelle Schenandoah, a member of the Oneida Nation, said the basis for the doctrine was the belief that non-Christian Indigenous Peoples were without souls.'
These people are unwell and their grasp of history is at best tenuous. Why would Catholic missionaries seek to convert Indians if they didn't have souls? Why did St. John Brebeuf die a brutal death in an effort to enculturate Canadian Indians if there was to be no spiritual gain? It's all nonsense.
