To the LCC,

I never thought I'd see the day when those who pledged to uphold and protect the Constitution in the state of Kansas would casually subvert the authority of that Constitution. Using a “time of crisis” to confiscate and prohibit a Free People from being able to peaceably assemble to exercise and practice their right to worship Almighty God. The grievances even go as far as demanding and commanding people not to freely exercise their First Amendment rights, and if free people choose to exercise their First Amendment rights they find themselves faced with the threat of fines, arrest, and possible jail time.

The oath and the pledge to protect and uphold the Constitution is something not to take lightly. There is no secondary clause for legislators, governors, or government officials to undermine the “oath of office” in any way or fashion...“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support the constitution of the United States and the constitution of the State of Kansas, and faithfully discharge the duties of my office or employment. So help me God.”

With a clear conscience, how can government officials advocate to restrict the rights of the people, this is a clear violation of the Constitution. How can they get away with undermining its guaranteed rights? These rights were not given to us just for sunny days, we don’t lose them when troubled times come. How can such politicians believe that they are doing the people a great service? To support the governors latest executive order 20-18 is to be on the wrong side of the Constitution and history. These are not suggested rights that are being challenged, but these are Constitutional Rights.

 “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

If you mean to uphold your “oath of office” then I request that you stand in strong opposition against Governor Kelly’s EO 20-18. 

“The very definition of tyranny is when all powers are gathered under one place.”

James Madison

May the Lord give you wisdom as you consider the right thing to do.
