Dear governments and politicians, wherever you are

‘Mr. [Prime Minister, President, etc.] with great respect, you are neither the king nor the ruler of [pick a country.] Both you and your colleagues are public servants sent for a short time to [Parliament, Congress, Bundestag, Diet, White House, Pink House, Kremlin, etc. ] at our behest as citizens to govern under God in terms of the [Charter, Constitution, etc.] and to seek a harmony of public legal interest. You do not grant people rights and responsibilities that are theirs as God’s image-bearers and a free people. Since you do not grant them, you have no authority to remove them.’ 

​’Your government does not grant people the right to their bodily integrity, the right to work or earn a living, the right to decide for their children or to be with their families or dying loved ones, the right to gather to worship and obey God, the right to travel in their own land or enter and leave. Civil government exists to protect these pre-political and fundamental freedoms, not bestow and remove them as if it can function in the place of God.’

Slightly adapted excerpt from: An Open Letter to Justin Trudeau and the Federal Government

    Sadly, my bet is this appeal will continue to fall on deaf ears.

      Thanks for reading Larry. BTW, the alleged SCOTUS abortion decision, the shutdown of Biden/OSHA vaccine and mask mandates, etc. are examples of exactly this finally happening in the U.S.
