Catholic Church Finally Apologizes For Its Role In The Rwandan Genocide

AFRICANGLOBE - The Rwanda Catholic Church Sunday apologised for its priests’ role in the 1994 Genocide against Tutsis, which killed close to one million people. The apology contained in a statement signed by nine Catholic Bishops who constitute the Episcopal Council was read after mass on Sunday. Thousands had been killed inside churches and church compounds where they had sought refuge. Shortly after the genocide, a report by the Organisation of African Unity, now the African Union, described the Church in Rwanda as carrying a “heavy responsibility” for failing to oppose, and even promoting ethnic discrimination. Since 1996, several clergy members of the Church have been convicted of genocide and crimes against humanity by Rwandan courts.

Whites Took Nothing From No One – Says White South African...

AFRICANGLOBE - “If you are Black God will send you white people,” he said. “Don’t say the problem in South Africa is the white people. No we are not. We have contributed to this nation, and we still do. “If you want to know why white people still have money, it is because they work. So don’t drive them away. They can speak into your life,” he said in the sermon. “Don’t push them away. Let them be the voice of God to you.” This is the type of garbage being preached by white settlers in South Africa.

Where The Bible Really Stands On Slavery

AFRICANGLOBE - Slaves, obey your earthly masters with fear and trembling, in singleness of heart, as you obey Christ; not only while being watched, and in order to please them, but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart. Render service with enthusiasm, as to the Lord and not to men and women, knowing that whatever good we do, we will receive the same again from the Lord, whether we are slaves or free.

White Jesus, White Moses

AFRICANGLOBE - With the glut of Hollywood moves revolving around Biblical themes lately, it seems that Christianity is enjoying a bit of a resurgence in popular culture.
