Dashiki dialogues: How do I say atheist in Sesotho?

2011-05-13 14:44

Some of my best friends are atheists. Well, at least that’s how they address themselves to the world. Don’t judge! I can think of worse human beings. Papa Ramps the poet calls them “beasts and preachers, priests and other creatures”. Yes, I know that somewhere an altar boy is nodding his head in affirmation.

Now how do I say “atheist” in Sesotho? Or worse, how do I frame ideas of compassion, love and ­justice without God for this ­beloved person?
