(Photo by David Cooper. http://www.niagarathisweek.com/opinion-story/5795019-shaw-festival-delivers-with-thinking-man-s-play-the-divine/) The cultural and intellectual experience: The Divine tells a story that contains two important issues in our actual and past age. One is the secrets and darkness hidden behind religion, which is still a fact now a days. Horrible stories about rapes and mistreatment held by priests are released continuously, causing a big impact on society. Also, the time of the play is during the period when all these abuse stories were not discovered yet, and you could also see a lot of child abuse in work industry. The play didn't really change my opinion because I was already aware about how work industry used to employ children to do hard jobs and damage them physically, but also mentally, and I also had my opinions about the awful rape stories in religion. I am a very Catholic guy, and when I hear these stories I just get sad, because I can't believe that someone who dedicates his life to God could be capable to do such a thing. Also, work abuse is something we should still be aware of, because these situations still happen in different places in the world, and it is totally inhuman.
