There is no saying exactly why natural disasters occur. They occur to peoples regardless of faith, religion, nationality, tribe or race. They are natural occurences that are huge and beyond our control. Sooner or later they will visit us. Lake Nyos disaster is just such an example. We should not be as concerned about natural disasters that are the will of God and over which we have no control and treats human beings the same way they treat stones and trees. Instead let us look at bad governance over which we should have control.

The problem with Cameroun is not Rosicrucianism of its rulers per se, but the cronyism and corruption that has become associated with it. Catholic cronyism is just as bad, because it favours the people in the "juju house" over those who are standing outside. Mohammedan cronyism is just as unfair. America is now ruled by people who claim to be very strong Christians. Once again, people in America are complaining about nepotism and unfairness that excludes people who are not like them. There have been riots outside Paris the last few days. People rioting are children who have been cut away from the benefits of society in a country that claims to be secular. So, being secular does not insulate a country from this tendency to do good to those with whom one identifies and to ignore the others. Good government is about ending that tendency as a matter of policy and following through on that policy..

I believe this is all a semantic instrument, dedicated to embarassing our President for his personal beliefs. If you want to criticise him for cronyism then do so! If you want to lambast him for corruption and stagnation..then be our guest.Do not however atribute it to the fact that he may or may not be a Rosicrucian. It did not make him loose his way... Nor do I believe It could possibly have made him any worse!

The problem with him would be that he is too removed from the reality of ordinary life. We want roads, he gives money to footballers..Football seems to be the modern day opiate of the Cameroon people, somthing that would take our minds off the Systematic rape of our Nation. It is for us to tell him we are not interested by Boycotting the Lions!..Then he may spend the money on somthing more usefull. We may then be able to notice we are being fleeced!

As for Praying to God, why should we? If we want to pray to ourselves we should be allowed to, just do not belittle other peoples personal views!..It is Anti Democratic, Fundamentalist and as an African, you have a lot to learn about our traditional beliefs and the direct corrolation between religeous intolerance and the loss of freedom..I Believe what you have done may be considered prejudicial and Illegal.
