As regards the acceptance of what is foul for political or monetary expedience I stand by my statement. It is always godly to maintain one’s righteous convictions even in the face of great personal risk. It is never godly to abandon God’s commands for the sake of personal political or financial gain.

It is always godly to maintain ones righteous convictions even in the face of great personal risk.
The danger is believing your convictions are righteous because they are your convictions and believing that holding to them is godly when it may be nothing more than stubbornness and believing that the great personal risk into which it puts you is, in and of itself, evidence of their godliness and righteousness:
"There is a way that seemeth right to a man but the end thereof is death."
