One of those few times that the Progressives will use the Bible, is an attempt to prove some sort of hypocrisy by the Tea Party, or Conservatives.
A favorite misuse, because it is almost true, just misunderstood, the scripture is;
Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. (Romans 13:1 NIV)
So where did they go wrong? Simple, WE THE PEOPLE are in control of our government and our Constitution protects us from that monster should it get out of control.
So, those of us trying to convince our government to stay within the confines of the U. S. Constitution which has the power of said authorities enumerated, are doing just as the scripture guides us. God established our authority, over the government, all we are trying to do is keep our authority.
