SUNDAY REVELATIONS: Africa’s Diabolical Entrapment

When I wrote the book “Africa’s Diabolical Entrapment”, in which I examined Black Africa’s plight in its self-imposed religious trap, I stopped short of crossing several thresholds. Contrary to speculations advanced by people who read articles, reviews and intros about this work, the content[...]
