Pastor Doug Wilson of Christ Church in Moscow, Idaho updates us on the realities of limiting free speech regarding #StickerGate. What is StickerGate? The better question is: How can a city government enforce a 71 year old ordinance on the expression of Free Speech when it was never enforced in the past? To get to the background read ‘For Immediate Release.’
On this program we will hear from Pastor Wilson about the egregious abuses of power that he and his family are personally experiencing. The arbitrary actions of the City of Moscow are not limited to this size of community but if you look around you can find actions regarding Constitutional Free Speech being ‘cancelled’ all over these United States.
Let us remember that the First Amendment in the Federal Constitution has five fundamental Rights secured: worship of God, speech, the press, assembly and redress of grievances. In respect to StickerGate, the Idaho Constitution clearly secures these fundamental Rights generally in Article I Sections 1, 2 and specifically in Sections 9, 10 and 22. I would suggest that the City of Moscow has problems understanding that based on the Idaho State Constitution, the political class there do not comprehend Article I Section 3 setting “the Constitution of the United States is the supreme law of the land” nor the Rights reserved in all the afore mentioned Sections of Idaho’s ARTICLE I – DECLARATION OF RIGHTS.
The case of #StickerGate is now at trial. Will the Rights of the Wilson’s be secured or is there something else goin on here. Follow Pastor Wilson at his blog called: Blog & Mablog.
What’s Unique about #StickerGate?
I discuss with Pastor Doug Wilson what it means to live out the full extensibility of The Gospel. I have always seen that the effects of the body of Christ in Moscow are exemplary in true active community. Pastor Wilson points out the key to how this works. Here’s a hint: less than 50% of the students in school in Moscow attend secular government schools.
Think about that when considering how folks in the community would know their God given rights and that government is not their masters. Hmm, can it be that an understanding of the fundamentals of truth rub the establishment such that a Sticker can light hair on fire? Listen to find out more about what Sam Adams would say:
“No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and virtue is preserved. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauched in their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders.”
The root of this knowledge and virtue are solid teaching from the Pulpit and dynamic leadership.
One thought not discussed in this program which requires every law enforcement officer and bureaucrat to consider: What does it mean to keep your Oath to Uphold the Constitutions of the US and your State?
What’s Next for America?
Let’s start with this quote from Sam Adams:
“Let us consider, brethren, we are struggling for our best birthrights and inheritance, which being infringed, renders all our blessings precarious in their enjoyments, and, consequently triffling in their value. Let us disappoint the Men who are raising themselves on the ruin of this Country. Let us convince every invader of our freedom, that we will be as free as the constitution our fathers recognized, will justify.”
I want to know ‘What’s Next for America’ and Pastor Wilson discussed the demise of Secular Man. I wonder: What are the possibilities for these United States to reform, repent or re-establish foundational Constitutionalism? Pastor Wilson has a perspective that captures my attention and so it should yours as well. To my surprise and delight, his perspective now compared to a conversation that I had with him about ten years ago.

Sam Adams Wisdom
Sam Adams Quotes applicable to #StickerGate:
“If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.”
“The right to freedom is the gift of God Almighty….The rights of the Colonists as Christians may be best understood by reading, and carefully studying the institutes of the great Lawgiver and head of the Christian Church: which are to be found clearly written and promuligated in the New Testament.”
“A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their virtue then will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.”
“How strangely will the Tools of a Tyrant pervert the plain Meaning of Words!”
“We have this day restored the Sovereign to Whom alone men ought to be obedient. He reigns in heaven and… from the rising to the setting sun, may His kingdom come.”
“The liberties of our country, the freedoms of our civil Constitution are worth defending at all hazards; it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors. They purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood. It will bring a mark of everlasting infamy on the present generation – enlightened as it is – if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of designing men.”
“The Legislative has no right to absolute, arbitrary power over the lives and fortunes of the people; nor can mortals assume a prerogative not only too high for men, but for angels, and therefore reserved for the exercise of the Deity alone.”
