Elie Wiesel once said: "I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure
suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps
the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never
the tormented." I believe I've received similar direction in answered prayer. Too often, though, Christians are silent in the face of bullying and marginalization of those on the other side of privilege. More often than we'd like to admit, Christians join the oppressors. All of this is sinful, the log in our eyes that stops us from clearly seeing others, must less serving them as Jesus taught and demonstrated.
