I think that there is merit in believing in whatever you’d like to believe in — as far as I am concerned, the power with each and every god or goddess (or God, or the Lord, or whatever or Whomever else) is within their metaphors and the teachings brought forward through Their stories. Does it matter if they’re “real”, if the end-result (i.e., the teaching of morals and the difference between good and evil, and et cetera
) was a success? I myself have a rather complicated belief system (with a bit of lore from so many different sources), which is completely and entirely independent of my loyalty to Her Majesty The Queen of Canada
, and Her Majesty’s heirs and successors.
My respect for the monarchy is not one of Christian faith, but one of a deep and profound respect for the constitutional relationship between The Sovereign
and the Canadian people, and a sincere appreciation for the fantastic work done on a day-to-day basis by The Royal Family of Canada
to better the world around them. It has nothing to do with inherited titles, and everything to do with the best possible system to provide peace, order and good government for Canadians.
Is it so difficult to believe that there are those who think that constitutional monarchy is the best system of representative-democratic government?
