Ace broadcaster and boss of GHOne, Nana Aba Anamoah has contended that religious organizations as fundamentally rooted in hypocrisy in a new post on Twitter.
The eloquent media personality said it’s incomprehensible that church members are plagued with a lot of problems and wallow in poverty yet their pastors don’t set their priorities right. She noted with concern how Christians lack basic needs and can’t afford a lot of things but they all excited and advocating for a national cathedral to be built.
“The biggest hypocrites are the religious organizations. Your members can’t afford basic healthcare needs. They’re dying because simple tools are unavailable for doctors/nurses to work with. Heck, they can’t even get a bed in hospitals. But you’re excited about a cathedral,” she said.
Her post triggered some reactions. See some below;
