I juxtaposed clips from Elder Bednars talk with photos, memes, and a video clip about a Pastor in Canada being prosecuted for his civil disobedience around religious freedom.
Elder David A. Bednar speaks about religious freedom in the Covid 19 era, and about government over-reach restricting religious expression protected by the United States Constitution.
Religion and Religious Freedom in the COVID-19 Era: Finding Community and Hope
As an apostle for the Lord Jesus Christ and one of his special witnesses, Elder Bednar shares his thoughts on the need to preserve religious liberty, especially during extreme last days shenanigans.
Elder Bednar discusses the pandemic at BYU Law School conference. Complete talk below.
A few quotes from Frederick Douglas seems timely today.
“What, to the American slave, is your 4th of July? I answer: a day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim.
To him, your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty, an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your denunciations of tyrants, brass fronted impudence; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mockery; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade, and solemnity, are, to him, mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy — a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages.
There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices, more shocking and bloody, than are the people of these United States, at this very hour.
…Allow me to say, in conclusion, notwithstanding the dark picture I have this day presented of the state of the nation, I do not despair of this country.
There are forces in operation, which must inevitably work the downfall of slavery. “The arm of the Lord is not shortened,” and the doom of slavery is certain. I, therefore, leave off where I began, with hope.
While drawing encouragement from the Declaration of Independence, the great principles it contains, and the genius of American Institutions, my spirit is also cheered by the obvious tendencies of the age.
Nations do not now stand in the same relation to each other that they did ages ago. No nation can now shut itself up from the surrounding world, and trot round in the same old path of its fathers without interference.”
Read the whole speech and then think of the totalitarianism of those who have hoisted virulent and deadly pandemics on the world.
These demons like Dr. Fauci who have lived deliciously off the broken bodies and brains of those who have trusted and believed the propaganda and lies since Aids was injected into the people deserve nothing less than being held fully accountable for their many crimes against humanity.
