Canon Andrew White – On speaking-up?

Faith Under Fire, by Canon Andrew White

“We can never forget what the Lutheran pastor and theologian Martin Niemöller reportedly told representatives of the Confessing Church in Frankfurt on 6 January 1946: They came first for the Communists, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist. Then they came for the trade unionists, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for me, And by that time no one was left to speak-up.”
