How would you feel like getting beaten by a so called man of God in the name of “religious purification?” For many of us, we would either stop attending the said church or out of anger, beat the pastor back.
But come to think of it, how would you feel when a white priest whips you with a “holy cane” all in the name of salvation? For the majority of you, there could be a feeling of anger but this was shockingly not the case of an African congregation somewhere in Africa.
In what has been described by many African’s as racist and colonialist, this Facebook video shows how a white priest beat the hell out of some African congregants who in turn shook his hand in submission.
Although many viewers have linked the video to the worrying acts of assault by some of our local pastors, one may need to worry about the effect this could have on our identity as Africans. Do you think a white congregation could accept for an African pastor to whip them the way this white pastor did?
