I am here, Thaddeus Stevens.
Life in the spirit world has cooled some of my earthly passions, but my ardor against slavery is unabated. I did not compromise with this evil institution when I was a mortal, and my position has not changed.
There are currently 27 million slaves in the world, and I have chosen to throw myself into the struggle against it just as I did on Earth, only now, there are no impediments on the part of reactionaries and bigots. Oh, how happy I am to be doing this work! What I mean is that, though there continue to be mortal impediments, my own efforts are unimpeded, and I am free to effect change without direct opposition. Oh, it is all so wonderful! How good the Creator is to His beloved children!
There is a mighty force, a mighty army of Celestial Angels and higher spirits flooding the Earth, and you will soon see the fruits of our labor.
As your fears and insecurities slowly evaporate, your soul sees, unimpeded, that you will be very happy because the Creator will provide for literally every one of your needs. You will continue to be given everything you need to do God’s work, and each day, the blessings will accumulate and point you toward your greater destiny, which you have always hungered to fulfill.
Thaddeus Stevens (April 4, 1792 – August 11, 1868), was a member of the United States House of Representatives from Pennsylvania. With Charles Sumner, they were the powerful leaders of the Radical Republicans during the American Civil War and Reconstruction. His biographer characterizes him as, “The Great Commoner, savior of free public education in Pennsylvania, national Republican leader in the struggles against slavery in the United States and intrepid mainstay of the attempt to secure racial justice for the freedmen during Reconstruction, the only member of the House of Representatives ever to have been known, even if mistakenly, as the ‘dictator’ of Congress.” (Source: Wikipedia.)
