AL Lawyer Declares ‘Public Officials Are Ministers Of God’ In Letter To Governor

Justice Roy Moore of Alabama’s Supreme Court has already made enough a fool of himself it seems. He already violated his oath of office by banning marriage equality, but now a lawyer who works for him, Win Johnson, has written an argument so unconstitutional, one must wonder if they have ever even read the Constitution that they have sworn to uphold?

The letter begins with “Jesus Christ is Lord of all” and goes downhill from there. A religious rant, but with a distinct failure of any civic understanding. Because right up front, in the second paragraph, his argument is encapsulated as the following.

Public officials are ministers of God assigned the duty of punishing the wicked and protecting the righteous.

So, public officials are not civil servants, but religious ministers according to him. As such, they are to enforce Sharia Law, not civic law, by his argument.

Further, Wil Johnson demonstrates that he does not even know the Sharia Law he demands our officials follow, for he has forgotten that the covenant under which the laws he claims must be followed was fulfilled, and that as such, those laws are now null and void. For it was Jesus himself who said that the law, the laws which banned homosexuality, were fulfilled, and replaced by a new Covenant. Wil Johnson as such is proving himself anti-Christian in his belief, for in one letter he not only denied to Caesar that which is Caesars (the public officials) but denied Jesus himself and the covenant Jesus established.

Public officials pledge to uphold the Constitution, not the Bible. As such, his letter demanding that they rip the Constitution to shreds, to enforce Sharia Law, is anti-American, bordering on treason. There is a reason why in our Constitution we have a prohibition of religious oaths for public office, and this is why.

Roy Moore and his ally Wil Johnson must tender their resignation for their behavior. They have violated not only their civic oaths, but their religious founders words as well. They are blasphemers to God and oathbreakers. As long-established, it is our Supreme Court, for good or ill, who are charged with interpreting our Constitution. Wil Johnson is wrong, his boss is wrong, and so long as they refuse to resign, they are nothing more than hypocritical heretics.

Here is the letter in full from Attorney Win Johnson.

Time for Public Officials to take their stand one way or the other

Jesus Christ is Lord of all. He came to save the world by His death and resurrection. That world includes you, me, the family, the civil government, all the institutions of life. He came to advance His Father’s kingdom, not watch man run rampant upon the earth as if Christ had never come. As if it were the days of Noah!

Public officials are ministers of God assigned the duty of punishing the wicked and protecting the righteous. If the public officials decide to officially approve of the acts of the wicked, they must logically not protect the righteous from the wicked. In fact, they must become protectors of the wicked. You cannot serve two masters; you must pick – God or Satan.

The criminal laws against homosexual sodomy are for the protection of the righteous, particularly the young, the weak, the vulnerable, who need the law to teach them right from wrong when in a vulnerable state. The U.S. Supreme Court, although it claims to have done so in 2003, cannot take something that God calls a crime and declare it not a crime.

We’re facing something even worse now, the civil government taking a new step and actually requiring the approval and sanctifying by the state of an evil behavior. Five justices on the U.S. Supreme Court have now opined that the States of this country and all of us must approve of so-called marriages of same sex couples.

Therefore, the civil government must now become a persecuting power; you cannot avoid it. The civil government must protect what it approves of. It must protect the advocates’ employment, their business dealings, their lives in every way. Against whom? Against those who think their lifestyle is evil. That’s you and me, bible-believing Christians, the Church, etc.

Public official, what will you do? Will you stand up for the law of Alabama, for the people, for the weak and vulnerable, for the law of God? Or will you capitulate? Will you become complicit in the takeover by the wicked?

“I must follow the law,” you say. Law? What law? There is no law anymore, there’s just opinion. One day this, one day that. When the law becomes merely the opinion of a handful of people on the courts, there is no longer any law. There is tyranny. There is chaos. But there is no law.

The young and the weak, those that are caused to stumble by courts that approve of what is evil, are those whom Jesus referred to when he said, “It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.” Luke 17:2. You don’t want to be complicit in allowing such stumbling blocks.

Don’t use the Nazi war-crimes trial defense: “My superiors (or the courts) told me to do it.” You’re not standing for the rule of law when you capitulate to a law that defies God and exposes people to the wicked. You’re just a coward making excuses!

Or will your conscience cause you to resign? Why would you leave the people of this State, their children, your children and grandchildren to the wolves, those who would rend the society apart with their denial of what’s good and evil?

Your duty is to stand against the ravages of a superior authority that would go beyond its rightful power and force upon the people something evil. That’s what the founders of our country did when Parliament exceeded its powers. That’s what the Puritans in civil government in the 1600’s did when the King exceeded his powers.

On Judgment Day, you won’t stand in front of the media, the advocates of “Equality,” or even the federal courts; you’ll stand before the King of Kings, the Judge and Ruler over the Kings of the Earth, Jesus Christ. His law is not subject to the vote of man, and He, asthe good and loving author of that law, does not exempt any nation from it. The law’s author, speaking of Himself as “the stone which the builders rejected,” said, “Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.” Luke 20:18.

What can you do? You have authority as an elected official. You also are sworn to uphold the U.S. Constitution and Alabama Constitution. Find a way to do so. Don’t acquiesce to the takeover (actually the takedown)! Use your authority and every legal angle to oppose the tyrants! If necessary, just say, “No.” It is not rebellion for you to say, “Your interpretation of the Constitution is wrong, beyond your authority, and detrimental to this nation.” In fact, it’s your duty. You’re not opposing the rule of law, you’re upholding it by saying that.
