Quote of the Day

Prop. 8 is making so many people sad and frustrated and unhappy. And no matter where you stand, I want you to consider this very famous quote about the Holocaust. It is from a Pastor!  And if this does not capture why we should speak out about injustice and inequality, I don’t know what will.

“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
