 Chimamanda Adichie Reveals Why She Stopped Attending Catholic Churches In Nigeria 



The Nigerian writer, Chimamanda Adichie, has revealed why she stopped attending Catholic churches in Nigeria. Chimamanda is one of the most celebrated writers in Nigeria, and few months ago she released a short story titled, zikora after many years of such release. Here is a biography of Chimamanda

She spoke in a recent Bounce Radio interview with media personality, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu. During the interview, the 43-year-old writer comfessed that she does not attend Catholic churches in Nigeria because the activities in the churches became “way too much” about money, fundraising, and thanksgiving.

According to Chimamanda,

“Nigerian Catholicism is way too much about money, fundraising, and thanksgiving. Some in the east even look at who’s wearing gold. I think the focus of religion should be things Nigerian Catholicism doesn’t focus on,”

The 43-year-old writer, said she still considers herself a Catholic nominally, said she only attends Catholic masses outside the country whenever she finds a “progressive” Catholic community that upholds humanity.

“I grew up Catholic. Catholicism was very important to me. It‘s almost like a culture, not just a religion. So even if you leave the Catholic Church, it’s in you. Today, I don’t like to talk about religion because I don’t know,” 

“I think of myself as agnostic and questioning. Catholicism holds you tight. There are many other protestant denominations that are not so. It’s all-inclusive. ‘You cannot eat before mass. You have to go to confession.’

“There are so many rules. It teaches you guilt in a way that I don’t think so many protestant denominations do. I’m Catholic, nominally. I still feel protective of some things about the Catholic Church. But I don’t attend it in Nigeria.”
