Mandela and South Africa

The editorial fills one with shame when looking at the government of South Africa. A Carnegie Report states that apartheid in that country cannot be reformed, that there must be a defeat of that country’s racist ideology.

What we sometimes forget is that the oppressive, racist government of South Africa is run for the most part by white Christians. This is what staggers one’s credulity. How can they defile their black brethren by terrorizing, maiming, and killing them and then ask to be recognized as Christians? They nauseate one with their hypocrisy.

When we look at the black people of South Africa, we are reminded of Jeremiah who cries out, “Oh that my head were waters, and my eyes a fountain of tears, that I might weep day and night for the slain of my beloved people.”

We cry out against the injustice of apartheid. We weep for the forlorn and the oppressed in the country of South Africa.
