    Why do blacks Practice Christianity? Was it forced on them during slavery?

    It was more like a refuge, we organized under the church, liberated, etc ...

    Remember, Nat Turner was a preacher, right?


    Nat Turner's Rebellion (also known as theSouthampton Insurrection) was a slave rebellion that took place in Southampton County, Virginia, during August 1831.[1] Led by Nat Turner, rebel slaves killed anywhere from 55 to 65 people, the highest number of fatalities caused by any slave uprising in the Southern United States. The rebellion was put down within a few days, but Turner survived in hiding for more than two months afterwards. The rebellion was effectively suppressed at Belmont Plantation on the morning of August 23, 1831.[2]

    Excellent question sister...It wasn't forced but it was fed to our ancestors. It gave them hope and something to believe in at a time when they felt that they had nothing else..They clung to it because it was through prayer and the teachings that a divine being would eventually bring them salvation. If not here, then in another life...(We were hoodwinked) But today what I find peculiar is: How in the world could any sane African/Black person of today continue to embrace the religion of an oppressor which was used to justify the enslavement and cruel and inhumane treatment of our African ancestors..There is something psychologically off here....Especially when one knows that Christianity is a story borrowed from other biblical, mythological and historical writings of Antiquity..Reminds me of The Stockholm Syndrome to a degree..

    No, I noticed she was banned but felt compelled to share my thoughts for others who might also share her thoughts but are afraid to ask or comment...
