Oh my goodness! Haven't we BTDT?! I will admit that listening to Tom Sawyer on cd a few years ago caused me to squirm a bit but it is REAL HISTORY! People didn't even MEAN anything by it! Well, maybe some did. :(

But reading Little House never made me feel that way! I am at a loss to understand how we find ourselves here............... AGAIN!

They're simply trying to erase history.

If there is historical proof that Indians (of whom I am descended) attacked white settlers, then they cannot argue that white people are all bad and irrationally so. But more importantly, they cannot argue that paganism is superior to Christianity because Christians were irrationally cruel to Indians who were just "living peacefully" and minding their own business.
