CHURCH AND STATE
Pro Veritate, a Christian monthly journal, reflects a theological point of view towards the ideologies of the ruling National Party. Christian viewpoints on such issues as conscientious objection, equality of economic opportunity, education for social change, instruments of power and discriminatory legislation are discussed in order to raise Christian consciousness and awareness to effect peaceful social change in those forces and structures causing deprivation, suffering and other forms of social injustice. The moral conscience of the South African population is called to examine the conflict between what is taught in the Christian Gospel and the injustices and discriminations experienced on a daily basis by the majority of that population: to reject racism in every form as being morally unacceptable and consequently to bring pressure on the National Government to effect political and legislative change to afford equal human rights and opportunities to all in a united South Africa. Several editions of Pro Veritate were declared undesirable under the Publications Act of the day. It was finally banned on 19th October 1977 under the Internal Security Act of South Africa.
