It is interesting to see how Africans who are constantly reminding the world of how European's exploited them {which they most certainly did, I'm not debating that for a minute} and colonized them and forced their culture and religion upon them. Now that the West have left, the Africans seem intent in remaining as "Christian" as they can despite having absolutely no history in Africa except Ethiopia.

It's odd how Africans cried over forced cultural change and yet now seem to bend over backwards to keep those archaic values alive. Religious dogma of any kind naturally suppresses human rights and Africans {and their leaders} seem damned and determined to make sure it stays that way.

Its only interesting if you dont understand the culture..african isnt exclusive, its all inclusive. It takes whats good and espouses it. Asian and white culture likes to be exclusive, but african culture will see somethimg good and adopt it. Its the the reason why i love chapatis despite it being an indian dish...

Whats good is good, cult ure.."cult" ure aside

Christianity wasn't spread in Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Sudan, Djibouti and Somalia In the 600 years between the birth of Jesus and the start of Islam

I know Eritrea used to be part of Ethiopia.

As someone pointed out. AIDS is also a reason why Africans aren't into the gay tourism thing, Africa is still dealing with it's own problems to start a gay tourist industry.
