A former aide of President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has tried to put in perspective how African Muslims and African Christians hold their creatos and religious leaders.
According to Reno, what angers a black African Muslim is when you say provocative words about their Allah or Prophet Mohammad.
He says the opposite is the case for the black African Christians because they get angry when you say negative things against their pastors and their G.Os – rather than when you talk against the God.
If you want to provoke reactions from most Black African Muslims, just say something unflattering about Allah, Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala, or prophet Mohammed, Sallallahu Aaihi Wasallam.
However, if you want to provoke reactions from most Black African Christians, don’t waste your time saying something unflattering about the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, or His Son, Yeshua Hamashiach.
They will hardly be provoked enough to take action.
However, if you say something unflattering, though true, about their pastor, Daddy GO, founder, overseer, or man of God, then you will see and hear red.
Nasir El-Rufai once insulted Christ by alleging an adulterous relationship between Him and Mary Magdalene in a tweet.
What did we do?
But the day Daddy Freeze criticised a man of God, the Pentecostal and evangelical arena stood up.
One pastor called him a b*****d.
He insulted his mother and said Freeze does not know his father.
He labelled him a Somalian (as if Somalians are not human beings).
Freeze got death threats.
He lost work.
He had to go underground for a while.
Two similar scenarios.
Two different reactions.
At the end, you may start wondering if they are actually worshiping the Creator or His creation.”
