Neutrality & Injustice

The world is a school of injustice where we promote excellence in neutrality. The result? We’re silent when there’s travesty of justice in our courts; indifferent when our leaders arbitrarily imprison, torture, and kill our enemies; comfortable when our churches deny or sanctify their acts of discrimination and racism; and we don’t blush in shame when our pious lies, hasty judgments, and fanatical zeal ruin lives! But as Desmond Tutu reminds us, “If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.” Indifference or neutrality in the face of injustice is a crime against humanity—and God (Isaiah 59:9-15). Let’s repent!—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
