Before the fall ?

"WAS there a happier Country on Earth before that Period, than this? Did it not enjoy all the Advantages of Government without its Burdens? Is there on Earth, this Day, a more wretched Country? Where is that Peace, that Ease, that Affluence, Security and Freedom which formerly resided in, and distinguished America? They are fled. Oppression, Violence and Usurpation prevail in their Stead. Distress and Affliction are universally diffused. The tenderest Ties are rent asunder. Those who should live and love like Brethren, are filled with deadly Animosity against each other: Not only Fellow Subject waring against Fellow Subject; but Brother and Brother, Parent and Child stand up to shed each other's Blood! Thousands have perished by the Sword, and by the Calamities of War---thousands are driven from their once peaceful Abodes, stript of their Property, and exposed to Misery and Want, on Account of their Loyalty. The Land is polluted with innocent Blood---with the Blood of those who, from a Principle of Conscience, adhered to their rightful Sovereign; and rather than renounce Him, or bear Arms against Him, have submitted to Death. Unsatisfied with these accumulated Evils, the Leaders of Rebellion would plunge this devoted Country still deeper in Ruin. They have leagued with the Popish, inveterate Enemies of our Nation, of our Religion and Liberties---delivered this Country into the Hands of a despotic Power---a Power which has extinguished Liberty, and extirpated the Protestant Religion from all its Dominions; and would, doubtless, gladly avail itself of the Opportunity, now offered, to exterminate Both in this Country also---But I turn from the Subject with Horror---my Heart will not permit me to enlarge."

Are these the rantings of a besieged Monarchist? Or are these the wise watchwords of someone who witnessed the betrayal of all legal and rightful authority? They are both.

Read these words carefully, because they represent a useful foreshadowing of what can happen to Canada once, and if, she decides to abandon all loyalty to the very fount of our existence - the British Crown.

I am not suggesting that our Dominion will be plunged into Civil War, but I do suggest quite strongly that the final result - diminished liberty - will be the same.

The source of such foreshadowing? None other than the Rt. Reverend Charles Inglis, Rector of Trinity Church, New York, and given as the Sermon at St George's and St. Paul's Chapels on January 30, 1780.

Inglis knew of what he spoke - as he lived these very tribulations. He would join the great exodus to British North America and eventually become the Bishop of Nova Scotia.
