Evangelical Extremists planting their seeds of destruction in Africa

My commentary: Although this particular article focuses on the Anti-Homosexual movement in Africa, I believe that this is as the author points out a larger movement of Western driven hegemony through culture. http://blackagendareport.com/?...es-homophobia-africa U.S. Christian Right Promotes Homophobia in Africa “ The U.S. Right – once isolated in Africa for supporting pro-apartheid, White supremacist regimes – has successfully reinvented itself as the mainstream of U.S. evangelicalism.”...

'Evangelical Extremists' have been planting the seeds of destruction in African since the first Christians arrived and colonized the Continent. Africa has never been the same since.

Reference: 'Evangelical Extremists' have been planting the seeds of destruction in African since the first Christians arrived and colonized the Continent. Africa has never been the same since. Christianity in Africa is as old as Christianity itself. The Christian church had spread to eastern and northern Africa by the second century CE. The remnants of these communities constitute the Coptic and Orthodox Christian churches of Egypt and Ethiopia. Also, many of the early "church fathers" were...

Hmmmm ... well, I suppose I hadn't thought of making such a distinction, kresge. But I guess if I had to do so, I would say that I was talking about from the beginning (whenever that was!) ... however, I was probably thinking that that was indeed at the time of the Western colonization of Africa (the 15th Century). I am talking about the intrusion (mainly of Christianity and Islam, but of other 'outside' religions, as well) into the millennia-old traditional ways of African reverence.

The remnants of these communities constitute the Coptic and Orthodox Christian churches of Egypt and Ethiopia. Also, many of the early "church fathers" were African - Origen, Tertullian, Augustine, etc. If they showed up today, they would be considered Black. Moreover, the some of the earliest Christian martyrs included African women -...

Don't forget 'Mother Mary'. Not the mother of Jesus Christ. The mother of St. Augustine. She was 'the African of origin'. She is highly revered in the Catholic Church. She is never...never...ever...acknowledged for her African..probably...Morrocan...ancestry. We must realize that 'The Dark Ages' of reference in European history is that period coincident with Moroccans conquering of the Iberian Peninsula (Spain and Portugal). This 'planting' has been going on since the European could write.

I'm talking about the Evangelical Christians of today who have been going into Africa and re-colonizing it with this new poisonous European driven Christianity. And I'm pretty sure that the author is referring to them as well.

This is a big deal the nation of Uganda, which is about to pass anti-homo laws is totally 'Family' inspired. If you do not know who the Family is, then it would do you good to know who they are, because they actually are trying to take over the world. These people do not believe in freedom as much as they do the divinity of their leadership, and that belief is a very dangerous thing, almost Hitleresque if you ask me. They are so in this that the moral failings of the member of the Family,...
