I looked up Romans Chapter 13 in my Bible, and it seems to say the exact opposite of what your are contending: obedience to authority regardless. Whatever St. Paul was trying to say, it is clear unjust laws and unjust authorities can demand no obedience on grounds of morality because if they can, the laws of morality mean nothing. Chapter 13 sounds as if those in positions of political or religious authority have a complete exemption given them just by having political authority. A strict interpretation of Romans 13 would make it immoral to challenge the Tweed ring's graft or Hitler's "Final Solution."
We know from history that Lord Acton was right. "Power tends of corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men." ( Letter to Mandell Creighton, April 1887.) As if any further proof was needed, Dr. Phillip Zimbardo's Stanford Prison Experiment removed all doubts.
If morality is to mean anything, it must apply to all equally: the powerful and the meek alike.

I have been compiling a list of prominent socialists over the last 500 years. It is a depressingly long list. It is also one that leaves me thinking hypocrisy and narcissism are part of being a socialist.

Sounds like Chicago is where Detroit arrived 30 or 40 years ago when "the murder city" set a record of 850 homicides in one year. With runaway crime, ultra high taxes, and an in-your-face all the time city government Detroit has lost hundreds of thousands in population and is little more than a burnt out hole. Look at Detroit for the Chicago of the future. Yuck!

Great idea! You are four years too late. AIM Report exposed Barack Obama's links to radicals like Frank Marshall Davis, Bill Ayers, and Bernadine Dohrn BEFORE he was elected the first time. THAT is when he should have been investigated. Forget about Harry Reid's Senate reconstituting the Nye Committee. That idea is DOA. And, do you really think the Republican wusses in Boehner's House of Representatives will re-constitute HUAC?
Accuracy in Media and Cliff Kincaid deserve enormous credit for exposing Obama in 2008 and 2009 as does Dr. Jerome Corsi. Unlike information on Al Gore and John “Swiftboat” Kerry, the information didn’t get where it needed to be when it needed to be there.

Oh yes, the reason Mitt Romney lost was simple. He was a very weak candidate who had flip-flopped too many times on too many issues and was unable to differentiate himself meaningfully from Obama. Plus he carried out a wishy-washy campaign against an opponent who could have been aggressively attacked on so many things. the only time the campaign came to life was when Romney attacked aggressively during the first debate.
I am tired of people trying to explain his defeat due to something other than the intrinsic weakness of the candidate. Most of the rest of the Republican field would have made a stronger run against Obama. Worse, most of these attempts argue as if Mitt Romneycare were some sort of Conservative. His record is clear he is a liberal. Not a "moderate"; a liberal.. His father's and mother''s political records are even worse. George Romney saddled Michigan with a state income tax and the largest spending increases in the history of the state.

I hate to tell you this. Most pastors of most denominations supported Obama and agree with his agenda on most items.
My church, Roman Catholic, sold out to the left in the 1960s. I have painful memories of getting "the spirit of Vatican II" crammed down our throats in my senior year at a Parochial high school. But many denominations had us beat by decades, like the Unitarians. In many denominations, like Episcopalian and Presbyterian, it was a slow process as more pro-freedom clergymen were replaced by modern liberals over many years.
