To me "mutilated, shredded, and killed" does have a negative twist to profound religous event, however my response wasn't meant as direct response to the thread...It just got me thinking about a few things so I thought i'd share them. I just think its odd how the native people of the Americas are consider "savages" when infact they were intellegent peaceful people. But let me reiterate, this is a generalization...not a direct response to this thread. I enjoyed the article.
