Call­ing out all Chris­tians

The Compass - - EDITORIAL OPINION -

Dear edi­tor,

Hat’s off to Rev. Mary Har­ris of Lewin’s Cove on the Burin Penin­sula for pub­licly speak­ing out about our Chris­tian faith and her­itage, on which our coun­try was founded, I might add.

Matthew 6:33 (Seek ye first the king­dom of God) is on our New­found­land and Labrador Coat of Arms. Now they’ve changed the time for the lead­ers’ de­bate in the fed­eral elec­tion to ac­com­mo­date Que­bec and the hockey game. Will the same be done here for us Chris­tians re­gard­ing the ad­vance vot­ing time be­ing held over our very sa­cred Easter Week­end?

Rev. Har­ris made some tremen­dously valid points that this change should take place. Ap­par­ently, no con­sid­er­a­tion was given by the pow­ers that be to the fact that this is Easter.

Come on, fel­low Chris­tians. Speak out. It looks to me that we are be­com­ing the silent mi­nor­ity, more to our shame. Let’s do some self-ex­am­i­na­tion to see what val­ues we have in the name of Christ.

What’s re­ally hap­pen­ing here? Are we stand­ing strong or be­ing walked over?
