    When critics want to complain that Catholicism has destroyed indigenous culture, they may want to consider this.

    Apparently there's an indigenous Indian "god" named Hannibal Lecter. Seriously, though, the same thing might be going on to this day in North America, had not that evil, evil guy Christopher Columbus succeeded in conquering "paradise" (cf. Kirkpatrick Sale's execrable book with a similar title).
