Saturday, August 26, 2017, Alabama Attorney General candidate Sam McLure spoke to the Alabama Constitution Party at their summer meeting in Prattville’s Islamorada Fish Company Restaurant at Bass Pro Shop.

McLure said, “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act. (Dietrich Bonhoeffer a German pastor and theologian who was killed in 1945 for opposing Nazi Germany).  If you are not willing to die for your political beliefs then get another hobby. Thievery and murder are the order of the day. Tyranny is not the greatest enemy of freedom, apathy is. I long for the day when Alabamians are more concerned about being on the wrong side of eternity rather than being on the wrong side of history.”
