I don't know but It is obvious that Somalis are just a victim of their believes! One may argue that the colonial powers would never divided them and they might be more developed right now.

Do you mean historically christian, like Ethiopia? Or do you mean colonial christian like Congo? I doubt we would have been better off, the reason Somalia is failed is not because of religion, but dhaqan, especially the dhaqan of rabshad.

we would be a combination between lebanon and kenya. peaceful east african nation with lots of resorts, nice hotels and restaurants, night clubs etc. but obviously that would never happen cuz of our backward ways and arab cult. let us at least try to establish a nation like djibouti. and make islam a minority religion in somalia.

LOL, the clans of the north-west would belong to the Church of England and the Southerners would be Roman Catholics, we would fight over which church to make our state church, and qabiils would fight over the top positions in the hierarchies of the churches.

I don't mean histroricaaly christian but I mean colonial christian like Tanzania or Kenya. Hadii aad dhagaysato mar uu ka sheekaynay sida dhulka Somali galbeen loo bixiyay Cumar Carte Qabib waxaad ka fahmi karkaa in ay gumaystayaashu ciqaabeen Somalida kabib markaay dhagaysan waayeen misionkookiina uu fuli waayay.

Laakin hadii ay Somalidu christian ahaan lahayd waxay la fangali lahayd hab u dhaqanka gumaystaha waxaa dhici lahaa integration ,la lana dhagaalameen iyaguna way u xoog furmilahaayeen.

I think that Somalis would not be in better position if they were historically christian for they would be invaded by Arabis. Some other good example that they would not be better off is Ethiopia which is the first country on the earth that used the Bible as legislative sources of the state but now almost one out three of its people are illitrate and hungary which mean that there is nothing that come out of that civilization.

Of course, I don't know anything about the christian faith but I know that they are ruling the world and one of the main targets of the colonail powers was to convert the indigenous people although the economic reason was the assential one.

If Somalia was Christian it would have been the most beautiful touristic destination on earth. Instead of backward Arabs we would have enlightened Europeans as allies and Somalia would have been the most enlightened country in Africa. Islam brings only backwardness, anti women culture and conflict with anyone who is not a muslim. The greatest tragedy for Somalia is the day it had accepted Islam in its country.

Hi Lisa, at least Somalis and Habasha would be good neughbours and would had an equal apportunity to their western masters.

It would be exactly like it is now, because Somalia's current condition does not have religious roots. Tribal conflict and civil war would have still been rife regardless of what religion is dominant.

lol I doubt it would play out like that. I think we would practice old christen like ethiopians and middle easterns. even catholics and other christens today aren't that religious. but now anything is better than this backward arab cult we practice.

Lisa aka Sheikh Voodoo, please read on the history of christianity in europe and you should definitely read about the history of the prostatent church vs the catholic church in Holland before talking.

If Somalis would´ve accepted x-tianity, the northern tribe swould belong to the Church of England and the Southern tribes would belong to the Roman Catholic church and fighting would have been inevitable.

Plus, christianity is so sexist that the priests are professional sexists.

Yes Islam can be critized for many, many, many things, but christianity is in no moral position to render Islam backwards.

Oh boy, Somalia would have been so much better without Islam.

We would not have any Bantu or Arab minority populations at all, as these people came to our land with Islamic slave trade caravans. Instead, Somalia would have been a 100% ethnically Cushitic country. Sadly, this isn't the case.

Somali women would have been more prized for their beauty as they wouldn't wear those hideous ninja clothes.

We would not be so anti-Western, and we would actually adopt many of the West's positive culture and we would have been more developed.

Let's face it, Somalia would be better off in so many ways. Insearchof is exaggerating, there are no Catholic Protestant conflicts in Africa as far as I'm aware, and at worst North and South would not want to unite from the beginning. Like I said before, the biggest supporter of our culture is Islam, and if the Europeans could strip us of our religion, what chance would our culture have?

The only thing that would change is that there would a higher HIV/AIDs rate. Muslim countries in Africa have a much lower rate than their Christian neighbours.

Nope.. Somalis would still have the barbaric pagan origin traditional of cutting their women, which would halt HIV. Many Christian Copts in Egypt and Eritrea still circumcise their women (it's an old pharaonic era pagan tradition).

Being Christian is not saving Congo, nor is it saving Ethiopia, or any other christian african country.

If you believe that christianity would mean peace in Somalia, all you have to do is look at Rwanda. Being Roman catholics sure didn´t save them from genocide, so why would it save Somalis who are more nomadic, more illiterate and even more tribal?



Would Somali men become less sexist than they are, if they were given a doctrine which preaches that pregnancy is a curse on women because of the original sin (traditional Judeo-Christian narrative).

Christianity is the vehicle of white supremacy, so I´m not surprised to see many colonized minds on here preaching it. De-colonize your minds people.

Btw, did I mention the Church´s role in the South African apartheid system?

I would rather commit suicide than convert to christianity, even though I have coptic and protestant relatives.#KanyeShrug
