Broken Hallelujah


  See, I was drinking and smoking while sitting on the steps. See, I was molesting and killing while hiding behind my robes. See, I was stealing and lying while preaching the gospel of God. just listen to the hallelujah I sang last night, when I used the offertory to buy my new Lamborghini. Ooh! hear the testimony I gave in church last Sunday, about the new house, I bought on the hill, while the orphaned remained homeless. Listening…

Racism and Modern Slavery: The Evils of the Civilised Society


By Muthoni Kamatu Racial discrimination has been a problem in the modern society for quite a long time.

Only good for Leaving
