Voodoo Temples: Original religion

You know the true religion of a country when the temples are bigger, more beautiful than the houses of the people.

A Vodun priest would live in a modest house but would buy cement and corrugated roof for the temple of Lêgba.

In Europe the most beautiful and the most visited buildings are their religious temples or churches.

In India the most Beautiful and most visited places are the Hindu/Buddhist temples while most Indians live in modest houses

In Africa, the churches are ugly, hastily built, often with rough branches from the bush, while the residence of the priest or the pastor is the the most beautiful, several stories.

You know a country is following the wrong religion when the temples are uglier than the residence of the worshipers.

You know a country is following the wrong religion when no tourist visit their God’s temples. Unsurprisingly, no tourist visit churches in Africa but the Vodun temples.

Like someone put it ‘in Africa Christianity is kilometers wide but only centimeters deep’.
