Key Quotes from Timothy Keller
“C.S. Lewis said the very first sign that you are moving into idolatry of your country is when you whitewash—that’s his term—your history, and you just look away from the bad things and you don’t admit that they happened.”
“What’s scary to me is…we are moving somewhat toward that in this country. There are people who feel like to be a patriot means, ‘I don’t want to hear bad things about my country’s past. I don’t want to hear about Jim Crow laws and slavery and stuff like that. That was in the past, we’ve gotten over it, it’s ok now.’’’
