thats hilarious some of the odlest churches are in africa and were instituted back when africans were enslaving other nations
i hate how blacks pretend they werent enslaving each other and other groups, slavery was a tool EVERYONE used back then and christianity was one of many religions practiced in africa, sh*t you africans use to convert europeans and asians so fall back
i guess hating on jesus is whats new in 2013
I knew someone would come in here and say something silly like this. Firstly, Christianity has its origin in African spiritual systems BUT that Christianity was much different than the Post Emperor Constantine and King James based teachings we have today. Secondly, I never mentioned or denied the existence of African tribal slavery..it's very clear that it existed. BUT in general, African tribal slavery was much different than the system the European slave traders put forth. In Africa, you could be put into indentured servitude if your tribe lost a battle with another but it would be for a limited period. I'm not trying to minimize its impact because forced labor is bad in any capacity but you can't compare that to the forced migration, enslavement, and torture of millions of Africans...robbing them of their language, history, food, knowledge of self, and opportunity for hundreds of years. Lastly, I'm not hating on Jesus because he's not real...they've been telling that tall tale for millennia.
