History

Most people think that slavery ended back in the 19th century, but that is NOT the case.
Slavery today is everywhere and a bigger problem than at any time in history.

"As was often the case, the brothels seemed to have more friends in high places...and closing down prostitution was a low priority for the local police departments. If any brother owner was tried on such accounts, plea bargains were often struck, and the owners got away with only minor fines. The system was corrupt, and the only way to turn it around was for there to be a huge public outcry against the kidnapping and abuse of these young women.
"What they uncovered was a complicated network of duping, drugging and shanghaiing thousands of girls, most of whom were under the age of sixteen...Some girls were shipped out of the country in coffins - nailed shut, with air holes drilled into them - to serve in the state-controlled brothels of mainland Europe. Many who regained consciousness mid-trip actually died of terror as they tried to claw their way out..." *

THIS IS A QUOTE FROM THE 1880S...
YET THESE SAME EVIL ACTS ARE STILL HAPPENING TODAY

Slavery is bigger than ever



William Wilberforce:
"If to be feelingly alive to the suffering of my fellow-creatures is to be a fanatic, I am one of the most incurable fanatics ever permitted to be at large."

Dietrich Bonhoeffer:
"When the rulers are silent before injustice, then the evil hand of violence is not far off. The violent language of human hands is fearful when there is no justice." 

* Quoted from Roberts Liardon, God's Generals, (New Kensington, PA: Whitaker House, 2008), 430-1
