A pastor was nearly lynched for having condoms fall out of his bible in Nigeria by local townspeople. His message was "safe sex." Their response was "you'll burn in hell!"

*facepalm moment*

Three problems:

(1) Lack of education which has promulgated generational ignorance
(2) Cultural stupidity
(3) Irrational, existential fear -probably caused by missionaries from previous generations.

90% of the problems in Africa at the moment are directly due to the church(es) spreading all sorts of utter drivel there. Are many people there ignorant of science and medicine? Yes. Is it the church(es) keeping them that way so they can exploit them? Also yes.

lol I'd direct the blame at the religion, not the country. Just because they have liberals to keep them in check doesn't mean that American evangelicals would not be the same way.

Was I the only one who thought this thread was titled 'ignorant n*ggers' at first glance?

And lived in mud huts and worshipped giant beetles etc. Not really an intellectual standard I think we should aim for.
