If you’re Christian and a racist

“When the racist is also a Christian, which is often the case in America, he is frequently a polytheist.  Historically, in polytheistic faiths, various gods have controlled various spheres of authority.  Thus, a Christian racist may think he lives under the requirements of the God biblical faith in most areas of his life, but whenever matters of race impinge on his life, in every area so affected, the idol of race determines the attitude, decision and action.”

~ George D. Kelsey, Racism and the Christian Understanding of Man, (New York, NY: Charles Scribner’s Sons, 1965), 27-28.
