Conservative Anglican Archbishop Peter Akinola of the Church of Nigeria criticized civil liberty organizations, especially those in the United States, for promoting a godless society through the removal of religious references in public.
Akinola, better known for his conservative leadership in the Anglican schism, noted that historic Christian symbols and phrases have been increasingly removed in American society, such as replacing "Merry Christmas" with "Seasons Greetings" on printed materials.
"[T]he founding fathers of the United States of America inserted 'In God we trust' in their coins but modern anti-Christ agents, in the name of civil liberties, are hell bent to erase God not only from the America currency, but also from the entire public domain including schools," he said, according to the Daily Trust newspaper in the capital city Abuja, Nigeria.
He described such actions as the “agents of anti-Christ determined to destroy Christianity.”
Avoiding the issue of history and the ability to read and understand history -- at least U.S. history -- let's just say that when ++Akinola stops promoting hatred and bigotry and when ++Akinola becomes one of those that promotes a chruch that is ope nto everyone and when ++Akinola has become serious about fixing the problems in his own country -- then we can sit down at talk about what is or is not right about the U.S.
