TO GOD by John Trudell



We hope you don’t mind, but we would like to talk to you, there’s some things we need to straighten out, it’s about these Christians…

They claim to be from Your nation, but man, you should see the things they do, all the time blaming it on you;

Manifest destiny, genocide, maximized profits, sterilization, raping the Earth, lying, taking more then they need, and all the forms of the greed.

We ask them why. They say it’s God’s will. Damn God, they make it so hard !

Remeber Jesus? Would you send Him back to them? Tell them not to kill Him, rather they should listen, stop abusing His name and Yours.

We do not mean to be disrespectful, but you know how it is, our People have their own ways. We never even heard of you until not long ago.

Your representative spoke magnificent things of You which we were willing to believe. But, from the way they acted we know that You and we were being deceived.

We do not mean You or your Christian children any bad, but you all came to take all we had.

We have not seen You, but we have heard so much. It’s time for You to decide what life is worth….we already remember, but maybe You forgot….
