Missionaries and land.

I like that one by Bishop Tutu. "When the missionaries came to Africa they had the bible and we had the land. They said let us pray and we closed our eyes. When we opened them again we had the bible and they had the land." Sounds about right. And we could add the missionaries brought with them all the homophobic bigotry, the sexist bigotry, the special oppression of women, private property.
