Bartholomew N. Okere, an ordained Catholic priest, asks serious questions about the nature of religion that the people of Igboland are confronted with:  
 
• Can someone believe in a supernatural being without any proof that the being is affecting his/ her life?
 
• Can the notion of God be therapeutic in any sense, especially when people face different life- threatening situations?
 
• Can a hungry person sing and praise God on empty stomach?
 
• Can the name of God be employed for any political gains?

He has been a hospital Board Certified chaplain (BCC) in many different hospitals in the States for many years before becoming the pastor of St.Henry Catholic Church Rogersville & St. James the Apostle Church Sneedville, TN.
