It's Our Turn: Time to put an end to silence

Email News Alerts

One of my favorite bands, Christian rock band Red, released its first album in 2006, titled End of Silence. I’ve always wondered what that means. End of silence. For a Christian, I think it means speaking up while there’s still time because that freedom-of-speech window is closing. The world today is becoming both tolerant and intolerant: tolerant of new ideas, no matter how wrong they are, and intolerant of those who oppose those ideas, no matter how right they are.
