Summary: Priest Simón José Cera denounces President Tomás C. Mosquera as a "Tyranical Usurper." States that neither God nor the Nation of New Granada elected Mosquera as Civil Magistrate, so the citizens of New Granada do not owe him their obedience.
Historical Notes: At the time of writing, President Tomás C. Mosquera ran an anticlerical campaign as part of his efforts to distance New Granada from its colonial past by severing the connections between church and state. Mosquera who led rebel forces during Liberal Civl War came to power by overthrowing the previous Conservative government, which had supported the Catholic Church as a means of maintaing moral order in New Granadian society.
