"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Seems to me that the leaders of the Yoruba relgion don't recognize the irony of this statement.

"We realize the pre-eminent position of Cuba in this religion," said congress president Wande Abimbola, a Nigerian professor at Boston University.

"From this island, the religion has been transported to so many diverse places in the world," he said, referring to the Cuban emigration that helped spread a religion that survived centuries of oppression here.

Castro has so oppressed his people, including those who practice Yoruba, that millions have been forced to flee, carrying hteir tratidions and beliefs with them. Wonderful, your faith has spread as a result of the misery and desire of Cuabn's to leave.
