Why Are Most White Folks Irreligious by lady2sexy(f): 1:30pm On Jan 26, 2018
Well I can’t speak for all the white folks the few I have met in my place of work are all irreligious. in fact the few I have worked with mostly from western Europe, US, Canada are strictly anti religion.

Just last week the white folk sent to head our department almost sacked our head of operations because of our usual morning devotion. He yelled at everybody like a mad dog and warned that it should be the last time we bring our god damn unproductive religion obsession to the office. He used all sort of f word to denigrate and insult everybody and blamed the dwindling fortunes of our department on our unproductive religious act. He said instead of mapping out strategies on how to improve and achieve our job objective we resort to clapping, dancing and making noise. though we tried to explain that we have done all those before trying to back it up with prayers but he shouted us down.

The previous white guy that headed our unit ain't religious but he's indifferent about our morning devotion as long as we do our normal safety tips and work meeting. other white guys in the coy are also not really interested about religion. only two out of lot identify themselves as Christians but they are basically non practicing as they know next to nothing in the bible. We understand they are Christians as a result of family background.

This is really serious, they brought religion to us and now they are no longer interested.

guys have any of you witness this anti religious stance while working with white folks. And guys that live abroad especially the western world educate us on how an average white folk perceive religion especially Christianity because if am left with this little experience of mine I would say they are satanist undecided

@lady2sexy,

I do not have white co-workers, however, these white folks definitely know the truth about christianity, that is why they react like that!!! They are better at critical thinking, but blacks will claim that philosophy will make you become an anti-christ!!! Most whites are rational thinkers while the blacks eat fufu which turns them into "super mumu"!!! Blacks hate logic while most whites cherish it!!!

Oh, it does. Of course, it doesn't have the answers you want to hear. But it has answers too.

Now, if you had had the patience to go through it, you'd have seen this...
cloudgoddess:

Africa without religion will be nothing but a blood zone.
People across Africa are already slaughtering nonbelievers, "witches" (children included), and homosexuals by the droves, directly for religiously-motivated reasons. Whether religion is doing anything positive for Africans as far as keeping crime at bay is highly questionable (and in my opinion extremely unlikely) considering the large amount of crime that's commited already even in the presence of high religiosity, AND in the name of religion itself.
Manually looking up the crime rates & rates of religiosity for the individual countries would yeild the same patterns; I've done it for a few of the countries shown on the second graph.

Across the board it seems that secular developed societies have far overgrown the need for religion.

Do you mean they're more critical in their thinking than us I have seen way smarter black folks even better than the white folks on the job yet they are religious. In fact I have never met a Nigerian that is self proclaim atheist in real life before and yet I have met Nigerians far smarter and technically sound than the smartest white folk I have ever worked with.

Because most white people have lost touch with *organic reality* including the food they eat.

Apart from those who lives in rural area, the white people have lost their origin and cultural values, and culture is people's way of life and religion is part of that life.

they do not brought religious to us, they only brought abrahimic religion.... truly western folks are irreligious , citing Germany as an example... you can only find religious folks in smaller cities and especially with the old men. the big city like Bavaria ,hamburg are less concern...almost every germans are catholic and you have to pay church tax so when you die the church sponsor your burial through the tax. most Germans avoid church due to tax. that is one of the reason anyway...

Another reason is those whom they see as mentor - the film producer, scientists, politicians, etc. have made technological advancement to judge the standard of human progress, so they accept that the advancement of technology is a most noble pursuit for humanity and not religion... you can see this evidence in their movies, there is so much concentration on science than reality.....

Although its not as bad as we imagined or experienced it around us, the problem our white brother has is that their pattern of life revolve *Working *Eating *Sleeping and *Celebration.

those who care about spirituality tilt towards Yoga, Cultism, witchcraft etc

BUT when Christmas comes everyone loves to celebrate Jesus

They didn't bring religion to us. Most African nations, pre-European colonization, had their own religions and belief systems. As captives/natives/slaves/colonized, you had to learn the language and beliefs of your colonial master. You, for example, speak English because those who owned your 'nation' enforced that language. 'London Bridge is falling down" must have been a popular rhyme.

As per Christianity, it takes a massive level of brainwashing for an African to believe a young Israelite slaughtered in far away Asia died for his sins. Or talks to him in dreams. Those who brought the tool understood its use. Those on whom the tool was administered, now cherish and worship their chains. It's a pity.

Look at this four instances and tell me what you can discern regarding the effect of prayer on the outcome of an exam. Assuming you agree that the statements are true.


A student read very well and prayed before writing an exam, and he passed

The same student read very well and did not pray before writing the same exam, and he passed.

The same student did not read at all, but prayed, and he failed.

The same student neither read nor prayed, and he failed.

Answering this problem will help you understand what those white guys at your place of work think about the productivity of prayers.

In summary, prayer is "redundant".

There are so many things we can learn from the white, from technology to engineering, to science. But when it comes to spirituality, I think they are the ones to learn from us. Africans are spiritually more mature than the white. Most of the White do not believe in the existence of spirits. But our history and experience as Africans especially in Nigeria shows evidently that spirit world is not only a reality but the control house of the universe.

It is true that most of them now are not religious. But don't forget the foundation upon which these countries were built on. The founding fathers of America and Britain were committed believers and Christians. American for instance have the slogan 'In God we Trust'. This could not have come from leaders who are irreligious. Could this foundation be the reason for the wealth they enjoy today?

You cannot disconnect the level of growth in America and Europe from their level of education. Ironically, the origin of these western education is Christian groups.

Believe it or not , Africa is the spiritual power house of the world - both positively and negatively. We teach the white about the operations of the spiritual kingdom. America and Britain are built on Christian foundation and that cannot be ignored.

Almost all Africans would trade their "Spiritual power house of the world" for the white man's engineering, science and technology any time any day; y'all are dying of overpopulation, starvation, poverty, lack of basic amenities etc despite the natural resources you've got and all you could say is that there's an imaginary realm and you're some master of that realm?
that's akin to a mad man telling you he's the richest in his own brain



and oh the usual lie they've repeated to you about USA that "the Founding Fathers were Christians who based their Constitution on Judeo-Christian values!" I guess that's why these assembled geniuses forgot to mention Abraham or Jesus in the entire document, or why good old Ben Franklin told Jefferson to write "self-evident" instead of "sacred."

Lady2sexy, even as a Christian, you should know that conducting prayer meetings during office hours is wrong. You can pray for your workplace at home or in the church, but when you get to work, you should work, because that’s what they pay you for. Also, the workplace is a diverse environment and no religion should be favored. You don’t have to be a “satanist” to see that your white bosses are right to be offended.
