Two days later, she called with a follow-up: The winds had indeed changed. Dozier was gone. "The archbishop and some of the other organizers, namely Julius, are shifting around some of the roles in the leadership," said Morris. Dozier was "stepping down" from his role of North American president. A news release said he didn't have enough time to devote to the project.

The preacher was as cordial as ever when reached by phone the day he was dismissed and denied that his departure would affect things much. "This is about the archbishop," he said, "and not about the things I say..."

He paused and gave God the last word.

Don't we have more than enough blaks in america cheating the government in food stamps ,welfare ,section 8 ?Do we really need African blacks to steal more money? Black pastors are more criminal minded than black crackheads.

  Black Africa has fallen from third world status from when all these African countries got their independence back in the mid-twentieth century to the new fourth world status today! They have gone backwards, while other third world countries have moved foward in varying degrees! Black Africa has always been this money-pit like an old jalopy car that as you put money in it the more money it takes to keep it running! As long as the area is unstable(social/economic/political/ethnic/religious/class structure instability), black Africa will always wallow in the mud! Funny how black leaders throughout Africa from the end of colonialism til now have always blamed "colonialism&America" for their present problems&poverty! How much money has been given since independence to black Africa? The future of that area is still going to be a "nightmare" with ever increasing numbers of people surviving on one-two dollars a day!

Religion has actually convinced people that there's an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time...But He loves you. He loves you, and He needs money! He always needs money! He's all-powerful, all-perfect, all-knowing, and all-wise, somehow just can't handle money! Religion takes in billions of dollars, they pay no taxes, and they always need a little more. Now, you talk about a good bullshittt story. Holy Shittt! But I want you to know something, this is sincere, I want you to know, when it comes to believing in God, I really tried. I really, really tried. I tried to believe that there is a God, who created each of us in His own image and likeness, loves us very much, and keeps a close eye on things. I really tried to believe that, but I gotta tell you, the longer you live, the more you look around, the more you realize, something is fuked up.

Wow, anyone buying that this guy wanted Africa to prosper and be enriched ? Africa was the cause, he and his cronies were the only one's that would prosper & be enriched from this ?
