G. K. Chesterton on Resisting Tyranny

"The wisest thing in the world is to cry out before you are hurt. It is no good to cry out after you are hurt; especially after you are mortally hurt. People talk about the impatience of the populace; but sound historians know that most tyrannies have been possible because men moved too late. It is often essential to resist a tyranny before it exists." ~G. K. Chesterton

Thank you David for this important and strong statement. Now, Now it is the time for the church to wake up and awaken the sleepin, ignorant, naive governments to the imminent disaster caused by the muslims whose hearts are full of horrible hatred against non-Muslims. Now, Now or it is going to be too late. PEACE.
