View Full Version : Deafening Silence

The pen is reputed to be mightier than the sword -- and probably is, over the longer stretches of history. Over the shorter stretches, the sword is definitive; or, as that great Leftist sage, Mao Tse-Tung, expressed it: "Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun." With its monopoly on power, the State is equipped to suppress the truth. And yet the truth will not die, no matter how many people are punished for expressing it. They may die -- or be imprisoned, fined, compelled to publicly recant, or otherwise silenced and humiliated -- but the truth will survive.

These things have been happening for years. And it will continue to do so. With a new baby on the way, I am scared of movements by law and legislation like this. What's really sad is that those who punish christians like this are completely ignorant of the irony and hypocrisy of their beliefs and idealogies. Very scary.

There will be many more examples in the years and months ahead.
