In the evening when her husband came home, she told him what had happened. “Go tell them I am home and invite them in!” The woman went out and invited the men in. “We do not go into a house together,” they replied. “Why is that?” she wanted to know.

I know in years gone by, when the major colonial powers of the UK, France, Spain, etc were using their power and influence to occupy other lands, with the intension of creating their own empires. Then by doing so redistributed any wealth and resources of those lands to themselves.

Strange, but at that time all these powers were in all intensive purposes Christian countries.  Where is the Christian principles in enslaving natives from other countries just to increase the wealth of themselves.  I am not saying that the intrepid adventurers or explorers should not have gone to find distant lands, but they should, as Christians, have  respected the right to life and to live an independent life of the natives of these lands. In some instances it would have been argued that the natives were savages, but was this so, just because an individual does not maintain the same customs as you does not make them a savage.  All should respect the feelings and customs of each other.
