When God Came to the Belchers.

On the Belcher murders connected to a religious frenzy by hunters who thought they were God and Jesus:

p. 24, the judge’s cross-examination:
What have you to say about her [Sarah’s] clothing being burned?

It is true. The igloo was full of smoke.

Was it from the lamp flame?

I think it was from the fire of books.

What books?

We had a lot about God and Jesus, but only Keytowieack could read in them.

And the people were not burning them?



Now that God and Jesus had come we did not need them any more.
