Quote from Rev. Edmund A. Opitz,

"There is a place for government in the affairs of men, and
our Declaration of Independence tells us precisely what that place is.
The role of government is to protect individuals in their God-given
individual rights. Freedom is the natural birthright of man, but all
that government can do in behalf of freedom is to let the individual alone,
and it should secure him in his rights by making others let him alone."


Rev. Edmund A. Opitz (more quotes by Rev. Edmund A. Opitz or books by/about Rev. Edmund A. Opitz)
