That was so until Blessed John Paul II came on the scene in leadership in Poland and the Solidary movement took off. The rest is history.
Well, actually, I believe that has been true all along.
Many, many Christians spoke up loudly with both words and deeds against both the Nazis and the Communists (including Pope Pius XII), and I think now, Christians also HAVE to speak up loudly, vociferously, and continously, out of deep, profound love for "the least of these brothers and sisters of Jesus", the unborn children given their life by Almighty God, those precious ones who cannot speak for themselves.
Now is NOT the time to try to stifle the truth, or draw attention away from that monstrously murderous holocaust called abortion. In that case, the love of God COMPELS us to speak out boldly and regularly in defense of the defenseless, no matter who "gets their feelings hurt".
