Oba Adefunmi delivers opening incantation to the Ancestors during the consecration of Bishop Jack L. Bomar. The well-attended event was laden with religious personalities and clergy from the Wiccan, Jewish, Native American and Yoruba Isese. Bobby Jones and Bishop Carlton Pearson and a host of religious and Tv personalities blessed the ceremony. This marks the first time a Bishop was crowned here by many faiths and cultures. When asked, Oba Adefunmi II stated that "this is the age of Aquarius and many people are throwing off the old colonial yoke and are open to other cultures and traditions". This even tied together many communities and gave us all a common stage to meet and better be able to address the problems our various communities faced.
Evil is allowed to rear it’s ugly head where good men are silent.
Today in Nigeria the homeland of Yoruba culture, we are calling all Oba’s and other traditional rulers to stand in unity and stage a national and international call for peace among the brother and sisters killing each other in Nigeria. If you are a follower of traditional religion in the diaspora of any sort then you should assume that the peace and stability of the homeland is directly tied to that of our own. Let those in Nigeria know we see them and we love them all and we call for a stop to the killings immediately.
