Dietrich Bonhoeffer: "Silence in the Face of Evil is Itself Evil"

Do not be apathetic! Do not sit back and tolerate evil! When you are on your death bed, do you then say that you could have done more?  Have no regrets and do something to stop abortion now!


Dietrich Bonhoeffer

"Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act."


"The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children."


"We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people."
  



Martin Luther King, Jr.

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."
  


"Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it."


"He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it."



Mother Teresa
 
"The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion because if a mother can kill her own child, what is left for me to kill you and you to kill me? There is nothing between."

 



"Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person."



"It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish."



Mahatma Gandhi

“You may never know what results come of your actions, but if you do nothing, there will be no results.”
 


"We must be the change we wish to see."



"What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans, and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or the holy name of liberty and democracy?"
