Enslave the liberty of but one human being and the liberties of the world are put in peril. (William Lloyd Garrison, 19th century American journalist and social reformer)

America was founded on the belief not only that all men are created equal but that they have the right to be free—to have liberty. It’s an ideal that has never been fully realized anywhere in the world, including the USA. That’s all the more reason that we should continue to pray for those who do not have liberty and pursue their freedom from oppression.

Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed (Isaiah 1:17). The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me . . . to set the oppressed free (Luke 4:18).
