The news is out: [On Mon, February 15, 2021, at 4:30 AM, David Zurawik of the Baltimore Sun wrote: “ For the first 24 minutes of “The Black Church: This Is Our Story, This Is Our Song,” I kept thinking what a profound and yet totally accessible TV historian Henry Louis Gates Jr. has become.
Within the first 10 minutes of the two-night, four-hour, PBS production, he had built and convinced me of the righteousness of his core narrative for this powerful and sprawling story of 400 years of African America resilience, invention, artistry, political resistance and religious transcendence.
As it is stated in PBS press materials, this is the story in Gates’ telling of Black people who “improvised ways of bringing their faith traditions from Africa to the New World, while translating them into a form of Christianity that was not only truly their own, but a redemptive force for a nation whose original sin was found in their ancestors’ enslavement across the Middle Passage.”
Forging that focused narrative out of 400 years of history is the work of a great mind. This is the Harvard professor at his intellectual best.]
What a bunch of crap. To begin with, Christianity was never a part of “the faith traditions from Africa.” I am sick and tired of dumb people writing about shit they know nothing about. Africa always had SPIRITUALITY and ALL religions are bastardized versions of that spirituality. Christianity has never been a redemptive force for Africans; it was used to enslave and butcher negroes.
The following was detailed very clearly in my book “World super predators,” where I stated that Christianity is the sick and demented propaganda of the Catholic beast. And their lunacy knows no bound as we are still fighting a holy war that a bunch of goat herders started over 2,000 years ago.
(In 325AD, at the Council of Nicaea, when emperor Constantine met with the legions of hell, in the forms of 1,800 religious bishops, Arius of Africa and million of innocent people were slaughtered.
In 1095, pope Urban II met with emperor Alexios I and the Crusades started. Million upon million of innocent people were butchered.
In 1250, pope Innocent IV issued the papal bull Ad Extirpanda, explicitly authorizing the torture of innocent people accused of being heretics. Million more lives were wasted in the Inquisition which the governments supported.
From 1450 to 1750, a gang of religious extremist terrorists conducted a witch hunt and 1 million innocent men, women, and children, labeled as witches, were tortured and executed.
In 1492, when Cristobal Colon, aka Christopher Columbus, met Roderic Borgia, aka pope Alexander VI, over 100 million of Native Americans were butchered.
In 1511, when Dominican friar and Bishop Bartolome de Las Casas met king Ferdinand II, the genocide of 127 million Africans started.
In 1915, leaders of the Turkish government met and set in motion a plan to massacre the Armenian population in order to convert them to Islam.
In 1933, his holiness pope Pius XI and the president of the German Reich wished to permanently regulate the relation between the Holy See and the German Reich, and 2 million Germans and Soviets, some of Jewish persuasion, went to the cemeteries.
In April 1992, in order to remove all Bosnians Muslims, many Bosniaks were driven into concentration camps, where 35,000 women and girls were systematically gang-raped and other civilians were tortured, starved and murdered.
On April 7th, 1994, the Rwanda genocide started after perpetrators from the Rwandan army and government backed militia met with the Catholic clergy. Some militias called themselves the “Army of Jesus” and their mission was the extermination of 1.5 million Tutsi and 2 million Rwandans were forcefully displaced.
In the 1990s, the category 5 Clinton administration met with the religious racist bigot called John J. Dilulio Jr, and American negroes are still paying the price with their lives.) Excerpt from World super predators @ Amazon.com/books
What else is there to say about Christianity that its God hasn’t made perfectly clear? Documented 187 times in the Christian bible, in books, chapters and verses, are the proud achievements of the object of their worship: 25 million innocent lives butchered by a psychotic and insecure invisible fairy. Men, women, children, and especially little babies, destroyed with such pride that would make a death row criminal cringe. Even animals and trees were not out of reach of a savage Trinity hell-bent on human sacrifices; with one branch of the triune being a redeemer born of adultery and incest.
The black churches have reached a level of destruction of the black communities that the white churches can only dream of. The domesticated negroes leading the religious charge against negroes are scavengers, buzzards feeding on the leftovers from the white evangelists. Instead of offering a reality check to their brothers, these Uncle Toms are peddling immortality and some other inconceivable nonsense to their own people, about invisible fairies, voices they hear in their heads, a white Jesus with blond hair and blue eyes, and what happens after death. All that is done against the backdrop of fleecing a flock of poor and uneducated negroes in Jesus’ name. The money, collected in mandatory tithes and donations stolen from the poorest, is used to pay for bigger churches with their names, air conditioned dog houses, shopping sprees for their mistresses, private jets, expensive cars, jewelry, drugs, and the service of hookers.
2,000 years of lying; 2,000 years of stealing; 2,000 years of money laundering; 2,000 years of raping little boys; 2,000 years of oppressing women and homosexuals; 2,000 years of condoning slavery; 2,000 years of condoning rape; 2,000 years of ethnic cleansing; 2,000 years of hellish threats; 2,000 years of butchering Indigenous peoples around the world; 2,000 years of criminal activities; 2,000 years of slaughtering innocent lives; 2,000 years of dragging humanity through the mud. Enough is enough.
So David Zurawik, Bill Clinton, Henry Louis Gates Jr and the black churches can kiss my black ass.
