"Evangelical Christianity was behind Wilberforce's successful campaign to abolish slavery. Elizabeth Fry and John Howard fought for prison reform and Lord Shaftesbury put a stop to children being sent down mines and up chimneys. It was a tradition that influenced many of the founders of the Labour party and trades union movement. "

So says the article in the Guardian today which also says that Evangelicals have now become the modern 'witch burners' and not the reformers of today.

It is so sad that we cannot be accepting.

You are a beautiful human person.
