    Great questions, Met.

    Shawn Lawson, your answers were ridiculous. Patronizing and contradicting at best.

    How you in this high energy spiritual institution from 14 with zero relatives involvement? You an orphan?

    So what if it’s associated with Obeah and Poco? Slaveey over so there’s no need to hide and use the European belief aystem as cova. Wha de seal dem fah if you is just bible and dance? The table is spiritual…Sanatria and de rest dem sacrifice and eat after. So why be ashame of the table?

    Why you belief system have such a high turn-out of sadomites?

    I support all African based spiritual practices that are not involved in any negativity. I find it fascinating that so many black ppl are quick to convert to all kinds of religions that originated outside of Africa, but consider African spirituality and mythicism to be less than ideal in their eyes. Some don’t even know that many African cultures have their own creation stories, some even far more interesting than the Adam and Eve story.

    Shaun, you should get proper instruction and learn about the history of your religion, especially since you are a leader. If that means you have to travel out for training then please do. There is much more you could have said, but whether through age, lack of education or just general misunderstanding I have no clue, but please try and get educated in your faith and religion in general so you can fully express what your religion is about and how it feeds the soul of its adherents. You’re very young still and true study of the mysteries is a lifelong pursuit. So it is OK to seek more knowledge if Revivalism is important to you.
