Tertullian on Black Lives Matter

"It is to be believed because it is absurd."

"Let our “seeking,” therefore, be in that which is our own [teaching], and from those who are our own, and concerning that which is our own – that and only that … can become an object of inquiry without impairing the rule of faith."

"[I]t is better for you to remain in ignorance, lest you should come to know what you ought not, because you have [already] acquired the knowledge of what you ought to know…. To know nothing in opposition to the rule [of faith] is to know all things."

"the absurd is precisely the object of faith, and only that can be believed…."

"you will not be “wise” unless you become a “fool” to the world, by believing “the foolish things”"
