"To call these things "establishments" with a denotation of such a flowery and a holy word as "missions" is a grievous misnomer. They were anything but - pure and simple, the California Baja missions and related "establishments" were concentration camps for Indians. Those that suffered the most were the youngest, smallest, least powerful, and most needy of all - little aboriginal children. They were not places of worship, but dungeons of horror and death. The Baja mission system used the "might is right" way of evangelizing - with whips, chains, and unspeakable types of violence. The Baja Missions were anything but holy - they were very unholy - a place only Mephistopheles would enjoy."
