The claim that white farmers are being disproportionately murdered and tortured in racially and politically motivated attacks designed to intimidate white farmers and drive them from their lands has over the last few years become increasingly vocal and attracted larger and larger numbers of followers.
In this episode, David and John examine the claim that there is a genocide against white farmers happening in South Africa. Are farm attacks politically motivated? Has the talk of land expropriation without compensation led to a rise in farm attacks and murders? Are farm murders more brutal and violent than other similar events in South Africa? What are the factors behind farm attacks?
How do we as Christians respond to the reality of attacks on farms and the fear that exists within the farming community? What tools does our theology offer to speak to both the reality and the myths surrounding farm murders? How should we as Christians and as church communities respond to the violence in South Africa?
