One of many atrocities the Catholic Church has committed.

I have been reading "The Book Your Church Doesn't Want You to Read." The latest chapters are about the atrocities the Catholic Church has committed over the past 2000 years. In California, Father Serra invented the Novenario for punishing native americans who strayed from the Christian way: 25 lashes for nine days in a row.

Sorry about the excessive posting. I am used to Facebook where there is no limit, to my knowledge. I was just catching up on things I had already posted elsewhere. I am done catching up.

Maximum of 20 blog entries can be displayed, I think.

There is lots of space at the bottom of the front page that the blogs can be lengthened to fill it up. OK, I will ask Richard.

Lorien, I suggest writing Brother Richard directly. I have no idea if they can be lengthened. I suspect if it were possible, it would already be done, as this has been such a contentious issue.

You're right Lorien, some days people don't post much, and other days, there's one a minute. I suggest people use their own judgement rather than "one every twelve hours". I'd just ask people to be considerate of other bloggers.

Do you have any other excerpts from that book, Rudy? I'm hoping they mentioned Reservation Boarding Schools, too.

Those look like his first blog posts and he had a lot to get out. Thanks for posting them Rudy - they were a good read. Grundgetta, maybe the blog listings on the front page can be lengthened in their numbers if this is such an issue here. There are days that it is dead and others that are very active.

Rudy, please space your blog posts out a wee bit more, say one every twelve hours or so. You may be unaware, but blog posts show up on the front page of Atheist Nexus. Since many folks are looking for personal interaction one their blog entries, it's good that everyone gets an opportunity for their time in the spotlight, so to speak.
