Invictus Idolatry

While the title of this post may suggest a political piece, it is not. Listen to the fascinating account of Dr. Peter Hammond of  Frontline Fellowship on his meeting with Mandela.

This stirring new film on South Africa’s 1995 Rugby World Cup victory includes serious distortions of history. Directed by Clint Eastwood and starring Morgan Freeman as President Nelson Mandela, Invictus makes a major contribution towards the building up of the mythology of Nelson Mandela as a modern day idol.
