Ikhide Ikheloa, popularly known as Pa Ikhide, yesterday, criticized Africans for still believing in the Bible and the ‘White man’s God.’ He calls a “Great Work Of Fiction”
Ikhide who is a literary critic, said the Bible “is a great work of fiction” and “a tool of oppression created by feuding brothers to oppress women, children, and the vulnerable.”
He wrote on Facebook:
“Unpopular opinion: The bible is a great work of fiction, a tool of oppression created by feuding brothers to oppress women, children and the vulnerable. It is homophobic and racist and to the extent that white slave hunters prayed over captured warriors from West Africa with the bible before they were shipped off to be slaves, it boggles my mind that an African would look at that bible and not hiss in disgust. Their God looked away during the middle passage as millions of Africans perished during the slave trade. We had our own religion before the coming of the white man. What is wrong with us? We are our own slaves. Onugo of my people lives in me.
