Given the well extensive damage done to African people throughout history, you have to ask what the appeal of the church and mosque is.

This is much more than individuals. we are talking of organized religion as an apparatus of state; a tool of power.

You think of the English national anthem — God Save the Queen, you think of the United States of America and the role of Christianity in the declaration of independence document and the federalist papers.

This is much bigger than profoundly corrupt and morally bankrupt individuals. This is a system at work here.

We must recognize and appreciate this fact.
