“You shall not oppress a resident alien; you know the heart of an alien, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt.”
Exodus 23:9 (New Revised Standard Version)
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984)
“We must do more than talk and write, we must act. Again, the Apostle says that ‘we wrestle’, not just talk, with spiritual wickedness.”
