African parents, stop forcing religion upon your children!
Informing the African people….
By Kevin Onuma
InformAfrica – African parents need to stop forcing imaginary beliefs or religion upon their children. It is a pandemic disease plaguing most African nations, and is very common in Christian families or homes.
In Africa, many children are forced to go to church every Sunday by their parents, forced to attend bible studies, and if a Catholic – forced to participate in alter services. It is force in a sense that, some African parents make it mandatory and not a thing of choice.
What’s even more sad is that in Catholic churches, people are made to confess their sins to a priest! Afterwards they’re asked to recite “10 hail mary’s” and “5 our father’s”. The reverend father will then say…”go and sin no more”. I never took church or religion serious growing up as a kid, it’s just one of those things you do to satisfy your parents shallow request. What a life!
I was once caught up in such bondage, but some Africans will never understand what it feels like to be this FREE. Why? They’re still caught up in the bondage! Our African people must be properly informed!
Below is an interesting point from an intelligent poster on Tee Akins FB page:
“Belief in gods is passed to children before they have the intellectual wherewithal to question their elders. Like your cuisine, your traditions and your values, belief in gods become a part of your being. They become axiomatic beliefs rather than the conclusion of rigorous intellectual inquiry.”
The white missionaries really raped the crap out of Africa when they flooded the continent with their fairy tale bibles and brainwashing several years ago.What’s even more funny is – I’ve noticed that we practice Christianity more in Africa than those who invented it or brought it to us.
For example, in Africa, Nigeria to be exact, many Catholics attend mass at least 3 times a week, followed by charismatic, house fellowship, and prayer meetings, not to forget catechism classes - this is their regular routine. This means majority of African Christians spend more than half of their life worshiping an imaginary “God”. They invest little to no time towards realistically developing their own self – their intellect is lost.
In African Christian homes, this is the life their children are forced to live. Does Africa truly need this? When are we going to wake up and realize we are being massively brainwashed with religion? In the US, I’ve noticed that majority of those that attend church services are Africans. Any intellectual being would apply critical and analytical reasoning to try to understand why this misconception of god exists in the mind of many Africans and not the world at large. Why Africa? We need to start questioning the effect and existence of religion on the continent if we truly want to gain more knowledge and solve our problems, if any.
Another interesting point on Tee Akin’s page:
“But it need not be like this. We see many countries that are freeing themselves from this cultural artifact In Japan only 4% of people are convinced gods are real. In Europe, plenty of countries have fewer than 20% of people who believe gods are real.”
Below is the message attached to the above photo by Teekay Akin, informing the African people:
”This is just sickening and sad.
It brings tears to my eyes every time I see such.
And entire generation and people wasted, enslaved and bound in their ignorance, folly and assumption of knowledge!
Wailing, jumping and screaming for some so called god to save them, while their lives deteriorate further.
While other men and races are getting work done, solving their problems and developing their cities and lives, ours are in churches and mosques, crying and begging the gods they have been given for miracles.
BUT MARK THESE WORDS! SOONER, SOONER! These shall be a thing of the past in our lands! WE SHALL RID OUR LANDS OF THESE CANCERS!!! THE TIME HAS COME!”
Series of comments followed after Teekay Akin posted the above photo, and some interesting opinion were shared, some of which are:
- Opinionist 1: 100% agree, this is totally tragic. Religion, superstition and magic acts like an invisible rope holding back entire nations in Africa. While Europeans are running away from superstition fast (and even the USA now has a rapidly growing atheist minority), Africans seem to be increasingly embracing it. It is pitiful and heart-breaking to see pictures like this.
- Opinionist 2: How many square metres is the land they re standing on & calculate how many local industries/employment that space could accommodate only if they gave “Common Sense” a lil chance of breath.
- Opinionist 3: If the mother’s are brain-washed then the continent will surely be brain-washed too. Have you noticed that all eyes are closed, they are all blinded by darkness.
- Opinionist 4: And it’s always women in the front row. What would it take for people to realize that this whole concept of religion was/is a fallacy, nothing concrete, just empty? I always say, should your 5 year old son begin to query you about the contents of the bible, that’s where our foolishness would become evident. Cos obviously the answers wouldn’t appease his conscience. I guess all you’d say to him is ‘just believe son’, if you don’t, hell is guaranteed of which you’re not even convinced of yet as a parent and with this you subdue the child’s ability to reason as a human. Typical!
- Opinionist 5: So when all is said and done, what does your belief in god offer you? a guaranteed seat in heaven? You truly believe, quite sincerely, that you’ve done anything to deserve that? or just some emotions you display towards an imaginary character will earn you that. Don’t be afraid, break free, it’s quite relieving!
- Opinionist 6: The churches are silent on the issues that are affecting the African community. It is an evil, wicked and corrupt institution that is geared to keep us as eternal slaves, only this time we are not on the cotton field plantation in the south or the sugar plantation in the caribbean. Or the breaking stones in robbin island. The greatest and most deadly enslavement is the spiritual enslavement of our African Mind, where the enemy has become the deity. Deep down in the subconscious of our people they worship europeans, (the jesus syndrome). They see the oppressor as the god (their savor) even though europe never had a Divine Spirit. That Divine Savor or Saviours never came from europeans and never will. That Divine Spirit always come from African Edenic People. According to Bob law, “all the european have in their history is john wayne, alexander the barbarian, tarzan, and rambo,”
- Opinionist 7: 100% agree, this is totally tragic. Religion, superstition and magic acts like an invisible rope holding back entire nations in Africa. While Europeans are running away from superstition fast (and even the USA now has a rapidly growing atheist minority), Africans seem to be increasingly embracing it. It is pitiful and heart-breaking to see pictures like this.
I see no need to disclose the real names of the above opinionists. However, you can visit Teekay Akin’s page to confirm this messages.
In conclusion, I believe the hands of time is changing. The days when African parents will no longer force imaginary beliefs or worshiping of imaginary gods upon their children will soon be over. The new generation of Africa is rising – they are powerful, knowledgeable, and intellect. The revolution has begun.
