“Religious Human Rights and the Bible”

“There is a story, which is fairly well known, about when the
missionaries came to Africa. They had the Bible and we, the
natives, had the land. They said ‘Let us pray,’ and we dutifully
shut our eyes. When we opened them, why, they now had the land
and we had the Bible.”
 
– Desmond M. Tutu, “Religious Human Rights and the Bible.”
