************************************
The more you mow us down, the more quickly we grow;
the blood of Christians is seed.

Tertullian

* * * * * * * * * *

Be of good comfort, Master Ridley, and play the man.
We shall this day light such a candle by God’s grace in England,
as I trust shall never be put out.

Hugh Latimer, at the stake

* * * * * * * * * *

The martyrs were bound, imprisoned, scourged, racked, burnt, rent, butchered–
and they multiplied.

Augustine

* * * * * * * * * *

It used to be that people would die for their faith,
but these days religion is not that important, at least not for Western people.
We are not fanatics.
If our government started executing Christians,
even most fundamentalists would be content to pursue their faith quietly, very quietly. There’s no point to getting yourself killed, is there?

John Alexander, The Other Side
