Columbus a murderer?

Recommended Posts

Child of the child

I'm a Knight of Columbus and needed answers on Columbus himself. Simple question. 

Was Columbus a murderer or rapist. 

If he were alove today would he be on death row awaiting his time? 

 

Sorry i meant to say if he were alive today, would he be on death row because of the crimes people claim about him. 

Was him enslaving people a brutal thing? 

Should Catholics support the man and should Catholics be proud to be named a Knight of Columbus?

religious freedom and the Baltimore Catechism is indirectly related to Columbus.  

not long after Columbus came (One of the original Thirteen Colonies) the colony  of Maryland.   Maryland is considered to be the birthplace of religious freedom in America, when it was formed by George Calvert in the early 17th century as an intended refuge for persecuted Catholics from England.  George Calvert was the first Lord of Baltimore and the first English proprietor of the then-Maryland colonial grant.

 Maryland was the seventh state to ratify the United States Constitution, and played a pivotal role in the founding of Washington, D.C., which was established on land donated by the state.

Why is this applicable? Columbus didn't stumble upon the Aztecs. He encountered the Arawak tribe, a peaceful community.
