I stumbled across this newspaper article by Matthew Parris which was published in The Times three years ago – December 27, 2008.

And the sub-title: Missionaries, not aid money, are the solution to Africa’s biggest problem – the crushing passivity of the people’s mindset.

I admire Matthew Parris’ courage and honesty in publishing this article. It is heartening to see an atheist grapple with the gap between his beliefs and his experience.
