Sourced quotes

  • "We in Africa are always on the receiving end. We have had human slavery, political slavery, economic slavery and now religious slavery. We in the church are saying no. We are prepared to live by what God says, not what you say. Man shall not sleep with man, woman shall not sleep with woman."[1]
Simple: We always suffer in Africa. We have had many kinds of slavery. We say no in church. We will obey god, not man.
