Africa was not always weak but very strong. Colonialism brought religion which has turned Africans into docile people. Once we ditch religion we will take our place

I hope when you say Africa needs to ditch religion you equally mean we ditch much of African traditions, right? undecided

No. Our traditional culture hasn’t caused problems like the religion

Your traditions are themselves religions, and many of your traditional beliefs have played a pivotal part in causing the problem of racism/tribalism and subjugation of women which is part and parcel of the problem among tribes in Nigeria and across Africa. undecided

Culture is and should be subject to change
As time goes on and the world changes
Traditions and cultural values that are not benefits the social lives of the people should be looked at and changed
You both have points though 😂😂

No they are not. It’s just culture. Unlike religion people are not abusing their kids using culture. No one is committing violence in the name of culture. Tradition is actually African the religion is not and hasn’t been good at all for us…

1. It is religion! undecided

2. See how you conveniently turn a blind eye to many evils committed by many in Nigeria in the name of tradition. So all the kids branded witches and the many women who have been branded witches and cast out of communities as a result, you choose to turn a blind eye to those violations all so you can hold on tight to tradition? and it is with that same mouth you cast down all other religions? lipsrsealed

3. Start by being honest about the many problems that are rooted in your African traditions abeg! Until you accept that is part and parcel of the problem, you might as well be swatting flies here. undecided

No it’s not. Tradition could be something as simple as the amala festival. Religion is a way of life. Traditions are not. The only real reason for the north south divide is religion and you’re pretending like that’s not the problem

North-South division? Are you so blind as to claim there is only a North-South division in Nigeria? grin grin grin grin

Look, Mr. Tradition-is-not-religion, if you are not ready to tackle the real problem at its root, then spare us these threads where you showcase how you are just another part of the problem that is Nigeria, choosing to remain blind to the issues right in front of you. undecided

The only real division is north south.
I am not the problem you are for continuing to deny the problem of religion in Africans. Africans are more religious than the people who taught them the religion. It’s fking ridiculous. I think it’s mostly out of fear of sex grin

Ask a man to swear by the Bible or Qur'an and he'll still not hesitate to lie.

Ask the same man to swear by Ogun and he'll even be afraid to swear in the first place, not to talk of lying afterwards.

Religion will continue to remain the Opium of the masses of Africa.
