Chimamanda Adichie Reveals Why She Stop Attending Catholic Churches In Nigeria

Chimamanda Adichie revealed this in an exclusive interview with media personality, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on Bounce Radio earlier in the year.

Renowned Nigerian writer, Chimamanda Adichie, has revealed why she stopped attending Catholic churches in Nigerian.

She revealed this in an exclusive interview with media personality, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on Bounce Radio earlier in the year.

Speaking in the interview, the 43-year-old writer explained that she does not attend Catholic churches in Nigeria because activities became “way too much” about money, fundraising, and thanksgiving.

She also revealed that she considers herself a Catholic, but is truly agnostic and questioning.

In her words:

“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.
“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.”
