Church Desecrating the Temple

This church was built on top of a sacred Aztec temple. It was done purposely to shift the local religion toward a force-fed faith system. The natives were used to build the temple but, once completed, were not allowed inside. Rather, they were forced to attend mass looking through the door. So not only did the Spanish seek to usurp the people they exhibited their very unChristian racism but not allowing those the sought to convert a seat at the Lord’s table.
