A Thorn in the Flesh

Niebuhr, Reinhold
May 1956
New Republic;5/28/56, Vol. 134 Issue 22, p20
This article focuses on the book "Naught for Your Comfort," by Trevor Huddleston. This volume introduces us to the whole sad tale of man's inhumanity to man. The failure to recognize a common humanity is so flagrant in South Africa that one is almost inclined to become complacent as an American. Huddleston was nevertheless a symbol to the Negro community of the saving remnant of Christian charity in a situation in which the Christian Church, that is the church of the Dutch farmers, has become the chief instrument of oppression.
