Will Christianity also become as offensive as racism? People who live in South Africa know about racism and how offensive and unacceptable it is. Racism hurts people, it causes division and segregation. It creates an, us and them mentality. It says one ethnic group is superior to another. Chris O’Doud an Irish actor made a telling comment the other day. He said religion will eventually become as offensive and unacceptable as racism. So we will see. But this we do know, religion is causing a lot of suffering at the moment. Just imagine if there was no religious ideology that caused offence and oppression and displacement - what peace we would have on earth.
