Ithaca, NY — Saturday, August 12, 2006
Ithaca was lively, as usual. We have our own community there. We had a very interactive and, at times, heated Open Forum all day and into the evening. Our free speech tent displays quotes from many people of the nations like this one, “If we don’t believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don’t believe in it at all,” “If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear,” and , “I may disagree with what you have to say, but I shall defend to the death your right to say it.”
We desire to extend to all those we meet the invitation to express whatever is on their hearts. This exercise of free speech is one thing that restores man’s dignity to him, and helps to bridge the gaps (that sadly exist between human beings), especially when they know that someone cares enough to listen to them. The movement in the world today to level conversation to socially acceptable, bite-sized capsules of political correctness, easily swallowed, is pushing people further and further away from being in touch with what is even working within themselves. These are just some of the things we are finding that love is actually made of—the keys to unlock even the most damaged of souls.
More coming soon!!!
