Satirist and comedian Kwaku Sintim Misa aka KSM has jabbed Ghanaians for being ‘primitive’ with their religious inclination. His outburst follows the many interpretations given to Ebony’s sad demise by Ghanaians and religious leaders.
The veteran TV and radio personality, obviously peeved by our over zealousness with religion, asked whether the white people who brought religion to us are towing the same line.
KSM, who was speaking on Radio XYZ challenged Ghanaians to rise above their over reliance on prophecies because the world has evolved.
Our insane and misapplication of religion is one. Look at the tragedy of Ebony. And now it’s become an issue of prophecy. Prophets are rushing to say ‘I said it first’. Nonsense!
Have you heard in America that a celebrity has died in America and reverend whatever, or T.D Jakes say ‘we saw it coming?’ No. Why?
They are evolved, Chief. It’s only in an unevolved society that where attention is paid to primitivity that prophets rush to claim that they saw that she (Ebony) was gonna to die.
So I’m saying that among the other things that we are suffering as a nation today is our obsession with this religion thing. It is killing us but we don’t know.
I’ve been to places where they have all night (service) for those who want job and the pastor will say catch the job. ‘huri na s? w’adwuma no’. You don’t get a job by jumping in church.
When can Ghanaians understand that you get a job by being an intelligent person who’s ready to contribute. Let’s not make religion tell us that we can make it through short cuts. . .its very, very sad for people like me.
