Please Explaingreenspun.com : LUSENET : The Illegal Overthrow of a Hawaiian 1840 Christendom: America's Deep Dark Secret : One Thread
Your Title intrigues me, however, from American History books...wasn't the first English Explorer to the Islands, Capt. James Cook...eaten by the subjects of this Chrisendom.

My apologies to the forum: An American Friend of mine...while I had excused myself to the mens room...having witnessed my placing this Title into the Public Forum, felt compelled to immediately place a well aimed shoot across my bow...using my own cannon. Of course I will respond, however, I wished first to clear the obvious discrepancy one might be inclined question upon seeing the submitting e-mail site.
That being established, let me assure my American Friend...and others that #1. It is not the first time in American History...the Whole Story was not truly divulged, and in some cases totally obscurred and missing all together.
America after all, while leading the world in affluence and supposed freedom for all...has confessed to numerous atrocities and sordid actions actions against a defeated foe; its historical treatment of its native Americans is now legendary, however, America's attempts at rectifying its past wrong in that arena are equally historical. Sadly, America has yet to properly reconcile its wrongs with the Native People of the Hawaiian Islands.
The Native Hawaiian Apology: Senate Joint Res. 19. Now Public Law 103-150, November 23, 1993 will clarify much of the unintended confusion, and if the viewers will log on to www.sovereignhawaii.com they can view a copy of their Public Apology to Native Hawaiians, and view other informational documents.
As for the Statement of my American Friend regarding an issue of Christian Cannibals in Hawaii...that incident reflected a period prior to the ENTIRE HAWAIIAN NATION changing over to a Christian Kingdom under the Anglo/Judeo Christendoms of the Modern Era.
What is truly unique...IS THAT THE HAWAIIANS (NOT A RACE, BUT A NATIONALISM; Polynesian is the Race...Kanaka Maoli the ancestoral- ethnicity) overthrew their Ancient Alii Kapu System of Government, 6 MONTHS PRIOR TO THE SETTING FOOT OF ANY CHRISTIAN MISSIONARIES IN THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS. During this same time the Hawaiian Islands Group became the MOST CHRISTENIZED NATION IN THE WORLD...97% OF ALL THE PEOPLE WERE REGISTERED WITH A CHURCH BODY, BAPTIZED AND BORN AGAIN BELIEVERS IN THE JEHOVAH-GOD(KE-AKUA-ALOHA).
THE HAWAIIAN-KINGDOM was founded and Constituted under the Supreme Law of Jehovah, and of the Spirit of His Word. Hawaii was actually a Theocracy...however, it was Administered under a European form of monarchy...which was against the original foundation of God's Law...which again honored man over GOD (1st Samuel: Divine Right of kings...the original rejection of God as KING over His people).
As for Capt. Cook, the Whole story is quite interesting, and he was consumed as an act of honor (common in many anchient cultures) however, in this case it was also the starting point of God's dealing with the Alii Kapu Chiefs...who were not of the Islands originally, but were actually the first invaders of the true Hawaiian People there all along (the Mana and Mene Hune People).
