Bishop Joseph Strickland has come out in support of truckers who have been protesting against Canada’s vaccine mandate in Ottawa and at the border to the U.S. for nearly three weeks now.
The bishop of Tyler, Texas, published his comment on Twitter Monday, saying that the freedom convoy is “deeply rooted in the basic values that have built the world [and that] we take for granted.”
Strickland joined the truckers in their opposition to the vaccine mandate, arguing that people must be “free to make choices for [their] own lives,” and that God has given “a tremendous freedom” to men that he created “in His image.”
“We MUST respect individual freedom,” stressed the U.S. bishop.
The freedom convoy is deeply rooted in the basic values that have built the world we take for granted. We must be free to make choices for our own lives. God has given us a tremendous freedom as He created us in His image. We MUST respect individual freedom. #FreedomConvoy
