…and I’ll illustrate my reason with simple magic trick. What did St. Patrick do? (Besides driving the snakes out of Ireland, which is provably not true: snakes have never existed on that island.) What he did was this:
“St. Patrick introduced Christianity to Ireland.”
Sounds benign and noble, right? What if your buddy TotD changed two of those nouns?
“Christopher Columbus introduced Christianity to the New World.”
Got it now? None of the babies buried in the mass graves they keep digging up are wearing green today, and neither are the girls educated at the Magdalene Laundries. Keep your damn religion to yourself, even if you do live in the Fifth Century.
