Canadian clergy rebuke Trudeau's "tyrannical" suspension of civil liberties, coercive mandates
Having lived in exceptionally beautiful, peaceful, and highly civilized Canada for most of my adult life, the sudden ugly turn of events in Ottawa and elsewhere in the country during the last two weeks shocked me to the bones!
By invoking the "Emergencies Act" which is akin to Martial Law in his attempt to quell the peaceful protest by truckers over Covid 19 mandates, Trudeau did not only condescendingly ignore the legitimate clamor of the people; he "insulted, denigrated and lied about them, further dividing a hurting and broken nation" , the pastors wrote in their open letter. The religious leaders scathingly reminded the youthful Prime Minister "to uphold the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms as "the highest law of our land, which recognizes the supremacy of God over all human legislation".
While the Bible teaches citizens to respect civil authority, it also teaches that righteousness on the part of everyone exalts a nation.
