The thing I think people forget in dealing with spirituality is that Spirit don’t look at the color of your skin. I don’t hear Christians saying you have to be a certain color…. Spirit don’t look at who you’re sleeping with. Spirit looks at what’s within your heart.
Aliki, an African-American priestess of Oshun, initiated in Nigeria. Quoted in Queering Creole Spiritual Traditions (pg. 211).
