“There comes a time when, as Jesus said, ‘He who is not with me is against me.’ That time is now. The real hope that the world of tomorrow will be the kind of world we want our children to live in is not to be found among the selfish and irresponsible politicians who use man’s inhumanity to man as a means of personal gain. The hope that there will be a decent world for our children rests with ordinary people who fear God, read their Bibles, say their prayers, and who gather on Sunday morning to acknowledge that their highest loyalty belongs to God, and that in obedience to him they must love their neighbors as themselves.”
