We ourselves are responsible for our own slavery when either through fear or the desire for an untroubled life, we elect authorities who proceed to promote evil. If we vote such people into power, then we have no right to condemn evil, as we ourselves help create it and legalize it.
– Fr. Jerzy Popieluszko in his Mass of May 1984 in Poland, in Grazyna Sikorska. Jerzy Popieluszko (1985), p. 73.
