Why the Church would find the actions of Christopher Columbus unacceptable?I know that slavery is one of them. Do you think there are any other reasons?

I think you can probably find all of the seven deadly sins in Columbus's voyage. The purpose of the trip was not altruistic. They were motivated by gain, in terms of social status and monetary gain. I doubt the church would approve of greed or slavery.
