Good point. The problem is religious enthusiasts and fanatics are really mental patients in waiting. They are always the first to give people great moral advice and the last to follow it. Their main objective is to gain contol, control over the ways in which the world believes and worships. They have no respect for cultural individuality or the concept of culture period, especially the cultural identities of blacks, who they assume are instintictively morally inferior in all matters, hence the need to "save" them from their "heathenistic tendencies" to worship "false gods" and "idols." These people are nothing more than victims of ignorance. As outsiders, they base their justification for religious imperialism on judgemental inferences and observations about African cultures, and for them, that's all that's needed to draw their conclusions. For instance, the average ignorant white American would look at Oshun's avatar and automatically assume that the black woman depicted in the avatar is "worshipping snakes," "having sex with the snake" and/or some other dumb ass observation about "Africans worshipping snakes and having sex with snakes." The first observer will then spread this observation around to other dumb whites who wouldn't know the difference between a truth and a lie if it bit them on the ass. Another white person, of the "professional type" will then find some other scholarly bigots to agree with him and prepare an "article" full of additional distortions and observations which ultimately is suppose to "confirm" the lies and print them as if they were "true." (Since people will believe anything that is printed) Next thing you know, I'll have someone like 'Immortal Logic' referring me to the article with the expectation for me to believe what is written in it because it has been written as an "article."
