Walmart provides parking for all their customers, too, but I don’t want to live next door.
Bible thumper here, but I’m solidly on the neighbors’ side in this one.
Romans 13 — “Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.”
But, that's isn't the thrust of Romans 14 - "For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil."
In former times in this nation, all elected officials were closely scrutinized as to their Christian belief. Non-Christians were NOT elected. These days we elect closet Muslims to the presidency - and other's that are not a 'Minister of God.'
If the elected are not Christian, then we owe no allegiance to those that are not Ministers of God. We work to oppose and DEpose them.
Ah... so, you too are part of the problem. You don't like those who revere and study the bible - and call them 'Bible thumpers.'
Ok, got it. Now I know where you stand.
