Quote : ”
Africans are intoxicated with profound religiosity that fails to respect the secular. Yet, the reality is that God-intoxicated prelates, alfas, and imams do not realize how arrogant their pronouncements are and how their inebriation makes them unaware of how ungodlike their behavior is
I hate to break it to you, my fellow Africans – continental and diasporic – the world over. I am now convinced beyond all doubt that God has no place in His\Her\Its heart for that segment of humanity called black and, especially, its sub-segment that is resident in the continent of Africa. I make the case for this claim in what follows.
But, first, a clarification. When I speak of God in this discussion, I refer solely to the supreme being of the two alien religious traditions that now dominate Africa and have so contorted Africans and warped our sensibilities that the two religions now constitute the origin and limits of what most Africans consider their world, its processes, their morality, their understanding of their world and how they think they ought to be in it.
This is the God to whom they sacrifice themselves and all that pertain to them, their spaces, their ways through life, and what happens to them after their death.
It is in their unceasing devotion to this God in expectation of significant improvements in their lives here and now that we find the best evidence that, if God exists, God must be playing the cruelest joke on pious, devout, God-intoxicated Africans.
I chose my words carefully. Yes, Africans are God-intoxicated. Want evidence? Where do I even begin? “ http://allafrica.com/stories/201403201260.html

Very interesting piece of writing this piece above is . In my opinion anyway
Iv’e experienced how some Christians, will like to point toward the phenomena of the growing-church within countries like Africa , perhaps even within China too . As being some form of good evidence to help suggest, how Christianity was still in great demand, and thus also in a very healthy state as well too.
But sometime religion can still continue to grow and exist, within these forms of chaos as well . Which to me does seem to be what some parts of the story above,rather vividly describes
There can be some strange reasons why people may be inclined to lean toward religion’s. In the same manner that there also is strange reasons why our family’s will make the choice themselves, to choose to remain within abusive cults like the Exclusive Brethren
Many times, at surface level, there seems to be little rhyme or reason to help explain it. Yet that may be because, the reasons are far more complex than many people can even imagine
Religion set adrift, without being equipped with some good guidelines, and a form of regulation also. Can soon become much like it’s a sinking ship being tossed about, on a stormy sea.
And it can easily become dangerous to human health
