Dr Mensah Otabil Does Not Know What Civilization Actually Means Dr Mensah Otabil

It’s Mensa Otabil again…

As part of his sermon yesterday, he stated that the West have become uncivilized because they grant human rights to GAYS & LESBIANS—and also, women are fighting for a right to go t*pless.

This makes me wonder if Mensa Otabil knows the origin of Christianity, the fraudulent enterprise he and several others claiming to be friends of an invincible God or representatives of a supreme dictator on earth continue to enrich themselves from…

Of course, the West are uncivilized for recognizing that every individual has an equal right—irrespective of origin, s*x, religion, s*xual orientation and color.

So to Mensa Otabil and the religious minds like him, civilization is to refuse another person a human right, treat another person less as a human because they are or have chosen to be different—either a lesbian or gay, agnostic or atheist, Buddhist or Muslim.

It’s deeply appalling, and somewhat diabolical that such religious leaders are allowed to openly preach and champion bigotry—on the back of some ridiculously offensive twisted logic.

To Mensa Otabil and his bunch, civilization is to live by the words and standards of a bronze age book, the Bible—and let me point out some of these standards they deem civilized for you;

#1. Women are inferior and less of human beings.

#2. Prostitutes should be killed.

#3. Gay and Homos*xuals are abomination and deserve to be ‘stoned to death.’

#4. A man should not even share the same bed with a woman who is on her period.

#5. The only time divorce is allowed is when a partner dies—so even if a man abuses his wife, she ought to stay in the marriage.

#6. The Israelis have a right to own slaves, let’s just pray they don’t come for us.

#7. Wearing a cloth/fabric made up of cotton and polyester is a sin—and perhaps, you ought to be punished for that.

#8. People with flat noses (and here it looks like we are talking about black people) are unworthy to come to the Lord.

I can go on and on—if this is his measure of civilization, then there’s no debate here. I understand why granting equal rights to every person would sit on the opposing side of his thoughts.

Ironically, Dr. Otabil fails to realize that the same West which he calls uncivilized brought the religion he is busily cashing in on. They “brought Christianity, hand in hand with slavery and colonialism, we gladly took it, and Dr Otabil is perpetuating that religion in his church. But he wants to rail against enlightenment values which are leading to equal protection for gays.”

Interestingly, Otabil said; “I tell you, church in Africa, the world needs us and we don’t have to bow and we don’t have to yield because we are the remaining light of this world because when I read about churches which are now ordaining gay bishops and gay this, I say: ‘Wow, where did we go?’”

Pope Francis

And my enlightened friend-Gowdin Nii Armah Okine responded in an article on GhanaCelebrities.Com;
“Africa is the light of this world? I presume God did not get the memo to give his ‘light’ water and food and money and governments that aren’t corrupt. God forgot to give his ‘light’ smart people and smart leaders. God forgot to lead his ‘light’ away from wars, and steer them clear of exploitation by both the rich westerners and their own leaders. I guess God forgot to protect his ‘light’ from malaria and AIDS and freaking Ebola. If Africa is the ‘light’ that God is counting on then no wonder people are abandoning him in droves.
Except in Africa, of course- the world’s poorest continent.”
As the lawyer and freedom fighter-Mahatma Gandhi puts it; the test of civilization in any given country, is how that country treats its minorities.
So comparing Africa to the West; it’s only an acute mentally constipated religious bigot who would assert that, the methods and ways of the West amount to non-civilization while that of Africa is the epitome of civilization.
Mahatma Ghandi
This is where I go for Geroge Carlin;
“When it comes to bullshit, big-time, major league bullshit, you have to stand in awe of the all-time champion of false promises and exaggerated claims, religion. No contest. No contest. Religion. Religion easily has the greatest bullshit story ever told. Think about it. Religion has actually convinced people that there’s an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day.
And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever ’til the end of time!
But He loves you. He loves you, and He needs money! He always needs money! He’s all-powerful, all-perfect, all-knowing, and all-wise, somehow just can’t handle money! Religion takes in billions of dollars, they pay no taxes, and they always need a little more. Now, you talk about a good bullshit story. Holy Shit!”
So it’s understandable why benefiting leaders of this ‘cult of ignorance’ will fight so hard to keep it in its current shape with such insane rhetoric—just to keep their credulous followers paying and coming to them all the time.
As a facebook friend noted; Mark Zuckerbeg the facebook founder is an atheist, and his co-founder-Chris Hughes is also gay so if Mensa Otabil hates gays so much and deem them as uncivilized, he should delete his facebook account, and ask all his church members to do the same.
