Fighting the Good Fight

Posted by Joseph on 5 May, 2012

The reports on the possible release of Chen Guangcheng and then also He Peirong contain a crucial lesson as Reggie Littejohn states:

“Some say that quiet, back door diplomacy is the way to deal with the detention of Chinese human rights defenders.  But human rights activists have found that high profile, public pressure is far more effective.”

A LifeSiteNews editorial stated recently that they had ” learned long ago that such public pressure is frequently the only way to get results on moral issues conflicts simply because corrupt liberal leaders, when it comes to such issues, are often manipulative and dishonest. They will only take responsible action if undeniable, disturbing facts are made very public and a campaign is organized to force needed resolution. That is the real world on the street which political operatives are well aware of.  Getting many persons involved in determined public campaigns will create far more effective pressure than only a few persons foolishly acting alone.”

Yes, to be effective against evils such as abortion, same sex ‘marriage’, and the liberal soul destroying sex education that spawns such abominations, we must be militant in peacefully promoting our beliefs, and do so publicly, proudly, and fearlessly. If Chen Guangcheng, a poor blind man in repressive communist country can do so much, how much more can we do, if we fight for truth, for justice – for God’s causes- with the tenacity of Chen!

yours in the fight for the family!
