It is Stupid for Africans to Celebrate Christmas!


Folks,
Are you an African? Will you celebrate the birth of Jesus? You are stupid!

ivorian_catholicsprayYes you are, and i know it is another season when most of you will probably be drinking and making merry as opposed to celebrating the birth of this dude called Jesus. To the ones who shall be eating, drinking, and meeting family, that is the way to go. No point of celebrating Jesus at all, the guy is irrelevant to Africans. To those who shall waste time in some goddamn church, hey, get something better to do goddammit! Go out and meet relatives, eat and have merry. Forget the stupid hymns. You are an African for crying out loud, and your great great grand parents never knew Jesus!

You see, the Christian religion is based on the idea that a man called Jesus living in the Roman province of Palestine 2,000 years ago was both human and God. His life and death offered salvation for all who believed in him. Many Africans believe in this story! Many Africans pray to this guy! This guy was a Jew, and his message was brought to Africa around 200 years ago by white missionaries folks. We never knew him before the missionaries came; we had our own culture and way of worship. But today we behave as if we have no identity, and the birth of this jew is so important to us! Damn!

Friends, we are black, we have no relationship with Jesus at all. We do not need to celebrate his birth, his miracles or his promises. Ok? This is what we ought to be thinking about this season. Let us not become slaves of religion. We are already colonized in many ways, our language, our cultures are eroding, we are basically fucked up. But on religion, let us look back and ask ourselves where we came from! The Jesus myth and folklore is not to be believed by any African, sawa?

Any Afriacn celebrating the birth of Jesus is foolish and dumb!

    There is much information available on the Internet showing that the Xmas (or “Christmas”) celebration, has its origins in non-christian, so-called “pagan” practices (the winter solstice, for example), as well as more contemporary secular customs (e.g., the Santa Claus myth). Decorating the home with an evergreen or “Xmas Tree” comes right out of the ancient Roman festival of worship to the non-christian god Saturn, the father of Jupiter (a.k.a. Zeus), and therefore had nothing to do with Jesus (who was not even born in December!).

    The Winter Solstice was a celebration of the returning light of the sun. For more and more people today- including many non-christians, buddhists, muslims, and atheists – these include many Africans – the holiday celebration has returned to its pagan roots, but is observed as a more or less secular, not religious, event. It is celebrated by millions as a day of joy, togetherness with friends and family, gift-exchanging, a time to kick back for a day or two and just plain relax. In my opinion, that is a sign of progress, not stupidity.

    Though a conservative christian fringe claim they would like to “put Christ back in Christmas,” as they say, these latter ones are denying the historical facts that Christ NEVER was part of the ancient celebration, which predated Jesus’ birth. Their agenda for doing this should be obvious, so in one sense I agree with you: Christianity’s appropriation of the ancient Winter Solstice festival and other pagan customs was a stupid idea from the beginning. In this way was inaugurated the historical period of ignorance and superstition that some today still call “The Dark Ages.”

    One cannot stop the sun from gradually returning; it’s a built-in cycle of nature. Today, as illustrated by the Winter Solstice, the Light of understanding is returning, and many are beginning to see it all clearly for what it was: one facet of an empire-wide swindle, perpetrated by the power-lusting religio-political leaders of Rome, intent on world domination by promoting the ignorance and superstition of the masses.

    This is one of the silliest thing tht one could ever say… Wht a silly and irrelevant thg, it is even a waste of web space not to mention the wasted time, wake up! Romans 1:28
    And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.

    ‘… and his message was brought to Africa around 200 years ago by white missionaries folks…’ hey dude, please! please! search for Ethiopian History and you will learn when the Ethiopians first knew about Jesus…Ethiopians used to practice old testament and in the 4th century AD they had transition into Christianity. Little knowledge is dangerous bros!

    The faith of the Ethiopians comes from the age of the Bible, not from European colonialism. For your information: http://roadsandkingdoms.com/2013/ancient-pilgrimage-new-jerusalem/
