KSM continues to express worry over the oversized influence of religion in the lives of Ghanaians and how harmful that can be.
The satirist, who recently warned about the so-called prophets of doom, has another piece of advice for Ghanaians in general about our dealings with religion.
According to him, we shouldn’t depend too much on God to make things happen in our lives, as those who make it in life tend to be those who work to get what they want and not those who jump up and down in church.
“…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,” KSM said on Radio XYZ.
“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..” he continued.
“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,” he added.
