1. America is a country of laws. Laws do not change based on Twitter campaigns, media spins, or some contrived form of public opinion. Laws change via the elected representatives of the citizenry. It is all spelled out in our U.S. Constitution. (Note: Activist judicial rulings are not binding as a true law of the land. Such precedents defy true Constitutional authority. You can't legislate from the bench).

2. Politics is not the place to make Christian converts. You cannot use the force of government to compel people to go to church. You can't change the human condition via proper legislation. The hearts of men are deceitful and desperately wicked; they can only rebel. However, the moral law of God as written on the hearts of mankind is the eternal blueprint for what is good and lawful. A nation that defies its moral foundation and elects men who dare to circumvent this foundation is bound to implode. Our tendency to rebel does not negate our true accountability before God and man.

3. The Christian leader, who works collaboratively with secular authorities that not only defy God's moral foundation but also undermine the very laws they've sworn to uphold, must step down. These leaders are to relinquish their positions of authority as they have proven themselves unprofitable. You cannot serve both God and man. Whenever the laws and inclinations of the governing authority blatantly conflict with the Word of God, the true Christian can no longer align him or herself with such authorities. And again, we must respect the legislative process and not incite rebellion against laws established and enacted with proper constitutional authority. (Note: The Supreme Court lacks moral authority and justification to redefine marriage and terminate the lives of innocents).

When the links become incestuous, and/or infected and corrupted, they must be wholly severed. See the signs and remain vigilant and faithful...
