Leftists of all stripes in America are trying to create a totalitarian society in which the only speech allowed is their speech. Already they are trying to control speech about marriage, sexuality, male and female distinctions, Covid lockdowns, masks, policing, evolution and creationism, American history, racism, China, and many other things. What can we do? There are many things we can do and one of those is that we can speak the truth. One reason the speech Nazis are having some success is that so many people are so incredibly timid. We must not shut up in the face of opposition. We can speak by conversation with our neighbors, by the distribution of literature, by social media, by whatever forum we have, every chance we get. If the Bible speaks about something, then God’s people can and must speak about that. The Word must be preached “in season, and out of season.” Refuse to be censored. Don’t sell your freedom of speech cheaply. “The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion” (Proverbs 28:1).
