The Azimio One Kenya Alliance presidential candidate Raila Odinga recently stated that, if elected president in August, he will abolish the dominance of Christianity in the nation. This was well received by the Atheists in Kenya Society.
Kenya is a secular state, according to Raila, who spoke on Thursday, and no faith is intended to be more important than another.
The former premier provided a colonial philosophy as an example, claiming it elevated Christianity above all other religions. He promised to ensure that all religions are equal and that none is better than any other.
“My government would put a stop to the colonial ideology that placed Christianity above all other religions. We would respect all religions since Kenya is a secular state, stated Raila Odinga.
Atheists in the nation responded to Raila’s assertion by claiming that Christianity was one of the forces utilized to colonize, exploit, and destroy African culture.
They continued by saying that for a very long time, the native culture and ancient religion of Africa had been denigrated as being primitive and archaic.
We concur with presidential candidate for the Azimio Coalition, Hon. Raila Odinga, that colonialism exalted Christianity above all other religions. According to a statement sent by the association’s chairman on Friday.
