In Canada and across the Commonwealth, we’re celebrating the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s reign. But to many people, the idea of a constitutional monarchy seems rather backwards. “What’s the point of a Queen who has no power?” is a question (spoken or unspoken) on many a critic’s mind.
Well, I try to give a brief answer to that in an article over at First Things. And I try to do so from a distinctly Christian Canadian perspective. It’s called “God save the Queen: A Canadian reflects on why the Monarchy still matters.” Check it out.
