Can I get a church from the congregation?
Talib is asking us, if there are enough people who believe in something strongly enough is it still possible to start a movement? Or has that ideal been destroyed because people think they are only allowed to believe in something if the establishment tells them it is ok to do so. It is also clever word play on a preacher asking for an “amen” from their congregation. Talib is paralleling us to his congregation, or supporters, and asking us, instead of giving him an amen to show our sign of faith, to give him a whole empire in his honor.
