Here I am in America in the year 2011 and I am freely writing for my blog. There are no restrictions concerning my faith in the Lord  Jesus!. It was a different story for Dietrich Bonhoeffer in Germany in 1941…

Bonhoeffer was in Switzerland a month. When he returned to Munich at the end of March (1941), he discovered a letter from the Reich Writers’ Guild informing him that he was henceforth prohibited from writing. He had gamely tried to avoid this and even registered with them–something he obviously thought loathsome and did to preserve their appearance of being a “good German” in their eyes. He even had gone so far as to submit the required “proof” of his “Aryan ancestry.” But even this unpleasant ruse had been insufficient to offset the offensively pro-Jewish content of the book on the Psalms. 

(Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy by Eric Metaxas, 377-378).
