‘The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it.’
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two equals four. If that is granted, all else follows.’
“They hate him who reproves in the gate, and they abhor him who speaks the truth”
The “gate” was the public square where the people discussed all kinds of things. Politicians even established public policy. Amos discovered that people who spoke truth were not welcome. Today the public square is social media and nothing has changed. Conservatives and Christians are often targeted for censorship and their content demoted and demonetized. The world is still the same as it was.
