Words to inspire

People who oppose the authorities are opposing what God has done, and they will be punished. Rulers are a threat to evil people, not to good people.- Romans 13.1-3, CEV.
(Courtesy off The Canadian Bible Society)

Now everything comes into focus. Those opposing the provincial government’s economic develpment approach are bound to be ‘punished’.

One takes the liberty to assume that Paul was referring to good government?

PS – the ‘off’ in Courtesy off is a cut and paste from the T&T. Apparently Al Hogan’s tight monitoring of editorial comment does not extend to spelling and grammer.

    You should really post more of that. Are you sure that he wasn’t talking about the police and law and order? Even that is a stretch, just ask any protestor, homeless person, or native. But seriously, it blows my mind that he is actually saying that, that is so wacky its like something out of a tabloid.

    When you start labelling political oppenents as ‘evil’ you are definitely heading down a scary road. When are they going to mention that Shawn Graham is the antichrist and those who vote for him ‘will taste the fires of helllllll!!’

    I don’t, frankly, know the context as I read it online. But it was the Quote of the Day for some reason! I saw Shawn G at the dreaded Atlantica conference and it looked like – I can’t be certain – he was sprouting horns…

    Thank you David for the Al Hogan rants. I finished one on the guy last week. What’s his problem anyway?

    I have no idea. A Napoleonic complex? Megalomaniac? I’m not sure it’s ideological-based as some have suggested otherwise he would have been furious with the Tories for regulating gas prices. I suspect he has a personal relationship with the Premier which would explain his absolute moratorium when it comes to criticzing provincial government activities.
