This letter is regarding Advocate article U.S. senator wants Canada on religious freedom watch list published June 26 on page 24.
The article stated Missouri Republican senator Josh Hawley feels Canada should be on a special watch list for violating religious freedoms by arresting two pastors at different times for ignoring COVID restrictions.
Perhaps he should do some homework by reading passages such as, among others, Romans 13 which clearly states that ‘everyone submit himself to the governing authorities…’
In my opinion, COVID restrictions were just and necessary.
Senator Hawley would do well to concentrate on the problems in his own country.
