Is Christianity a charter for oppression? Christianity has received a negative stereotype for being an oppressive religion that only caters to Westerners and for being the basis of colonialism. Is it true that Christianity is the root cause of oppression, sexism and slavery? How valid are these claims?
This past semester Dr. Scott Masson gave a very insightful talk at U of T, at a Power to Change event, challenging these claims, while addressing Christianity’s role in the liberation of the oppressed.
