The Preacher Man - Brother Jero #6

"Religion is flawed because man is flawed..." Dan Brown - Angels & Demons

Brother Jero aka 'Brother Jeroboam' is the name of the main  and  my favourite character from Wole Soyinka's brilliant  play 'The Trials Of Brother Jero'.  Lost count of how many times I've read the play over the years, but seeing this gentleman preaching in Hyde Park brought back fond memories of Wole Soyinka's colouful main character. Although I don't believe in this preacher man's views, which are based on a doctrine of a church  in Calabar, Eastern Nigeria, I do however respect his right and admire his unwavering faith in his belief. I will be posting a series of images of this really fascinating gentleman over the next few days.

Welcome to Speakers Corner, Hyde Park right in the heart of Central London. Come one, come all for enlightenment, and be prepared to have your religious, political views, tolerance and sanity pushed to the limit.

"..debate, humour and madness a place where there is no entry requirements, no rules of intellectual formality and above all, no class restrictions." Anon
