Quote# 75801

As an American Indian I am so blessed that God took this country and set it up to promote freedom of religion. Otherwise our people would still be doing rain dances etc to try to apease the Gods. There was a lot of suffering and disgrace the way the people were treated, but there was a lot of false beliefs too. We had many men of God that wrote the constitution and bill of rights etc that were purposed to a righteoous cause.

Yea, someone named "Alyssa Miller" who calls herself an "American Indian" is totally a Native American.

"As an American Indian..."

If she's an Indigenous American...Then I'm a two-headed green unicorn named Bob Dobbs from Planet Gorblatt-12!

@ SpukiKitty

That's silly! Everyone knows the Dobbs family of unicorns are from Gorblatt 11 and only the females are two-headed once in a while! ;-)

With white name like that, I call for major bullshit.

Any self respecting Native American, if you happen to even see them now loathe Christianity with a burning passion for obvious reasons.

Glad you liked having your culture destroyed.

I'm thinking that what we have here is actually a sock-puppet pretending to be an American Indian.

I'm currently reading "Lies my teacher told me." It suggests that early European explorers took Native American belief systems back with them, and that those belief systems influenced the Enlightenment a great deal. The Enlightenment, of course, influenced the aforementioned Constitution and Bill of Rights.

@Percy:

Given the topic, that girl better be a Native American.
Just sayin...

Also, to everyone commenting on the OP's ancestry, No True Scotsman much?

i'm thinking you either are not a native american or you are so ignorant of history that you fucking have no clue about how america was before the europians came.

oh yeah, do you thank god for smallpox?

Re Labels: I remember reading about some inter-tribal council out West deciding that they wanted to be called "American Indians" rather than "Native Americans" and that in Arizona the signs typically read "Indian Country"--maybe it's an east/west thing, I don't know.

I do know that the Hopis still do rain dances to get rain...which they can do because after long periods of forcing kids into boarding schools where they were forced to give up their culture, the US government finally decided to pay more than lip service to that whole "1st amendment" thing.

The scary thing is that Alyssa Miller could very well be part American Indian despite her name. I feel horrible for her family and tribe.

Holy crap, woman! Please do a bit of research on our Constitution and genocide of our Native Americans. Quit the religious blubbering and stand up.

Your right! Thank you for thanking them. Now if we could get those friekn African American's to thank us we would be all set.

Freedom of religion.

You keep saying those words. They do not mean what you think they mean.

Freedom of religion = forced christianity? as many a sci-fi robot has said: "does not compute"

"Otherwise our people would still be doing rain dances etc to try to appease the Gods."

Because praying and singing and witnessing to appease one makes so much more sense.

Um, didn't the American Indians pretty much live the way they wanted to before the white man came here? They didn't really need a document promoting freedom of religion.

I seriously doubt that this wasn't written by a Native American. In all likelihood, it was written by someone who believes that the white people 'saved' the Natives from their "barbaric practices and religion".

If, in the remotest chance that Alyssa Miller is, in fact, a Native American, then wow at so much self-hatred. She doesn't need the Constitution, she needs therapy.

You probably love the fact that our ancestors killed yours and stole your land, too.

No, no, no. Freedom of religion means the Native Americans should have been allowed to keep doing their rain dances, instead of being forced to convert to Christianity. Also, the Europeans spent about 150 years killing Native Americans before the first 13 colonies became the United States. So what part of those years was good or productive in any way toward gaining "freedom of religion?"
