Christians and civil liberties

Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both. – Benjamin Franklin

But… we’re giving up liberties right around the world in order to gain “a little security” aren’t we?

What would Benjamin Franklin have to say about the world today?

What concerns me is that the loss of these liberties may benefit this generation by protecting us from nutters, but what happens if a future generation dislikes fundamentalist Christians… are we considered the nutters then?

Let’s protect everyone’s freedoms now, while we still have them for ourselves.
