    "Bishop Kukah criticized Western powers that have not done more to help Nigeria. He said: 'We hear promises from the United States and Europe and they all come to nothing.'" Is it possible that the West does nothing to protect the victims of genocide in Nigeria because Nigeria is among the African nations whose people condemn gender ideology, homosexual _behavior_, abortion, moral ambiguity, and a host of other fashionable evils? Almost all African prelates preach and abide in Catholic truth.
