Boity Thulo is trending on social media after she made tweets about the Bible and Christianity.
Her tweet caused tons of chaos and has split Mzansi social media users.
The Ba Kae rapper said that her reason for not believing within the bible was the shortage of representation of girls and the way it doesn't resonate together with her journey.
“Lol! The Bible is that the epitome of patriarchy. Thoroughly.”
“Lack of female voices and representation especially within the Bible. Also, the journey didn’t refill the void in my soul the way i used to be mentioned to believe it might ,” she tweeted.
She also acknowledged how she had studied the bible and therefore the whole religion thoroughly and still felt it had been biased towards women.
“You telling me that book was a record of years of people’s Holy encounters and that they barely got 10 nyana WOMEN to speak about their moments with Jesus? Gurl, bye,” she wrote.
Boity had received her calling as a traditional healer and had said in numerous interviews how she still attends church as well as practice as a sangoma.
She stated her stance on Christianity has changed and her fans who are religious people called her out on her beliefs.
“Look man, I’ve gone through the religious journey. Went to church. I read the book. Found little to no form of representation in there. Not race, barely gender, not a name, not much. I was left with more questions than connection. And then I found my way. Each to their own,” she closed the debate.

SibusisoSibiy12 said: “Knowing the Bible is a personal experience, same as knowing God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. We do not have abilities to change how people think and behave but we can influence, do not try to disagree with Boity, that will not help, but be a reflection of what you believe in.”
