Aboriginal Groups Not Happy With Pope Francis’ Apologies

Well, I’m shocked:

In imploring U.S. lawmakers to show compassion to refugees, Pope Francis once again acknowledged the brutal treatment of the Indigenous peoples in the settlement of North America.

But the Catholic pontiff did not agree to a request from Canadian and American native leaders to meet during Francis’s first visit to the United States this week.

And he proceeded to canonize a Catholic missionary whose elevation to sainthood was strongly opposed by many First Nations.

The ever-aggrieved are never happy.
