Default Evangelizing Religion

With all provisos about how it is a shame they were killed, this woman's rant about her metaphysical system of egocentric self-gratification and the special purpose ordained by God which meant for her father to die in order to bring Christianity to a stone-age tribe just makes me sick, actually nauseous.

This is what religion does to people.

Well, sadly, an H-G people that got mild and temporary protection from their justifiable "paranoia" during a contact in the modern age. Longer term, there will be no difference. What was once achieved by conquistadors, or panzers, and the deliberate or inadvertent spreading of disease now occurs the "civilised" way via globalised capitalism.
