This is my sixty second post for Linda’s One Liner Wednesday Challenge. This week’s challenge is Torture (Without Pain) or just random funny and inspirational one liners. I tried to make it one liners but some are two liners. Hope everyone is doing well, staying home, and staying safe. Here’s a link to Linda’s blog https://lindaghill.com/2020/11/18/one-liner-wednesday-torture-without-pain/

“Today we are engaged in a deadly global struggle for those who would intimidate, torture, and murder people for exercising the most basic freedoms. If we are to win this struggle and spread those freedoms, we must keep our own moral compass pointed in a true direction.”

“You can chain me, you can torture me, you can even destroy this body, but you will never imprison my mind.”

“To suggest that God specifically created a worm to torture small African children is blasphemy as far as I can see. The Archbishop of Canterbury doesn’t believe that.”
