Examples of serra in a Sentence

  1. Corine Fairbanks:

    I think that Serra was, you know, an accomplice and co-conspirator to rape, land theft, torture, murder. I think that he’s just as bad as Hitler. I mean, some people might not understand the comparison, but he was a man with a vision and kept nothing—nothing—in the way of making that vision happen, didn’t care how many thousands of people that he hurt. He had a vision, he had a plan, he executed it.

  2. Pope Francis:

    Junipero Serra left his native land and its way of life, he was excited about blazing trails, going forth to meet many people, learning and valuing their particular customs and ways of life.

  3. Olin Tezcatlipoca:

    Our protest is to tell the Pope that by canonizing Junipero Serra, they want to canonize colonialism, they want to canonize white supremacy and they want to canonize the genocide of our people. And that is an immoral act.

  4. Emma Taila:

    A lot of people make the argument Serra had goodintentions —of course, we don’t know that for sure because all of our accounts are from a Spanish perspective — but our view is that he was complicit in the mission system that killed and enslaved a lot of native people, and we can’t just go around honoring everyone who had good intentions with a high school name, especially if they caused so much damage.

  5. Corine Fairbanks:

    The irony does not go unnoticed that here the Pope now proposes to elevate Serra to sainthood and yet, many know him to be a monster who separated, butchered and maimed Native families - all in the name of Christ, military and progress.
