It is difficult to not be pluralistic (in contrast to theocratic) as a government official under the auspices of a First Amendment to a U.S. Constitution which does not specify which denominational or sectarian religion is to neither be established nor prohibited.
If a majority of voters (or those who function or cause the effect of a majority), who vote into office a certain favored government official, determine that the predominant religion is Christianity or Judaism or Islam, that will be the overpowering religion which will [temporarily] rule in a pluralistic society.
It is less likely that a specific denomination of - let's say - Christianity (for example, such as Lutheran or Methodist or Baptist Protestantism) will be agreed upon as the majority-rule religion to the virtual near-exclusion against other forms, not only Protestantism, but Christianity itself (not to mention other religions) in general.
How would you like unionized police and firemen, letter carriers, school teachers - all unwilling to heartily work or work at all unless the lazy rebels are given pay raises they have not earned and do not deserve - to suddenly go on strike in Wisconsin and where you live . . . when you need emergency help and dependable public service?
Obama has done almost nothing to adjust the interstate highway system for slower-moving all-electric cars, establish recharging posts for them across the nation, subsidize first-time buyers of all-electric cars, and begin to put into effect slower speed limits to accomodate those driving all-electric cars.
So, WHO caused more people to get laid off:
Romney, when he was at Bain Capital (and for what causes, with what effect), or Obama, when he was involved in laying off many GM workers (and for what causes, and with what effect)?
Perhaps if they had engineered the Volt to be a range-adequate car that people actually could safely and economically drive at a price they could afford, they would not need to shut down production. But that is what happened when they had to build a car for Obominite enviro-wacko ideology and not for consumers.
Here's the "good" news: now those 1300 laidoff GM workers can collect unemployment checks and stimulate the economy.(?)
The largest banks are actually bigger than they were when Obama took office. And earned more in the first two-and-a-half years of his term than they did during the entire eight years of the Bush administration.
Steelworkers lost their jobs under an Obama operative working at Bain Capital . . . two years after Romney disassociated from Bain.
Energy Secretary Chu admitted the Obominite regime does not want lower gas prices. Perhaps they thought by keeping prices high, they will be able to force already-impoverished people into those overpriced, short-range electric cars and into financial-disaster bankruptcy.
No wonder the unionized Detroit automakers moved off their greedy duffs and got their act together to salvage Obama's bailout for them. The way the unionized auto industry has usually worked is to temporarily lay off production lines so they can get on the government dole (unemployment plus union bennies) while they retool or reassess production or decide to simply suck government dollars until a new line is up and running - which is why foreign cars produced outside the USA started to become the better deal back in the 1980s.
So it cost us taxpayers $3 billion to lay off 1,300 workers? Is Obama awesome or what?
Nobody likes layoffs. We want an America without union bullies pulling the strings of puppet socialist leaders.
Barry's reverse Midas Touch strikes again, most everything he throws our tax dollars at turns to FAIL.
By the way, some of those Government Motors employees will be back on the job, just as soon as Subprime signs the order mandating that federal employees start driving Volts. The taxpayers, already burned once, will get burned again, but Subprime will be able to keep on lying about how he's saved the auto industry.
When GM says "layoff", they mean "lengthy paid vacation" via government bailout dollars.
But don't shed a tear for these wonderful folks.
Adding the layoff cost to the production cost, credits cost, bailout cost, advertising cost, etc. does this bring put the average cost of a Volt above $300,000 per unit?
As I see it, why are homogays uptight about the Marriage Amendment, specifically reaffirming marriage as a union between one man and one woman? That exact wording of the proposed amendment does not specifically forbid same-gender-sodomy-union "marriages," nor "marriages" to animals, inanimate objects, mistresses, cohabitational agreements for fornication, adultery, nor even participating in non-State-registered common-law concubine private contracts. One cannot even make an iron-clad convincing case that the "one man one woman" blurb even infers or insinuates any conceivable type of prohibition against alternative-entity marriages.
Not only does it not specifically address alternative-entity marriages, but it states no fine, imprisonment, nor execution for having such alternative-entity marriages.
What is does seem to specifically prohibit, and touted by sexist feminists who chauvenistically want to control and regulate men (contrary to Scripture), is disallowance of patriarchal harem polygamy.
That is why I personally will NOT vote for the amendment if, come November's Election Day ballot, the wording is: "ONE man and ONE woman."
Nor even "A man and A woman."
What I would vote for is simply the limited wording: "man and woman."
I had always presumed that arrogant and sassy homogays and their nitwit smart-ass supporters were sharper and smarter than they really are . . . instead of being as stupid as the gullible bullyboy Brownshirt Nazi thugs who got Hitler into power but who eventually got to be a larger-audience embarrassment and hindrance because of German-church and general-German-people anti-faggot objectionism which caused Der Fuehrer to have his black-shirted Gestapo suddenly arrest, imprison, and execute the homoqueer Brownshirts.
But obviously homo-activists are being duped by their own proclivity to self-deception - a beginning fulfillment of the Scriptural prophecy: "God sends upon them a strong delusion, to make them believe what is false, because they refused to love the truth."
Astonishingly, homodikes and lesbo homodikesses overlook the anti-homosexual muslim-doctrines upbringing and allegiance of the foreign-wrace Kenyan-not-Hawaiian-born Sly One.
Notice that although he said that "gay couples should get married" (in HIS opinion), he did not elaborate by specifically saying WHO homogay couples should get married to. And so, in cunning and subtle lawyer-like choice of semantics, the Hypnotic One leaves open a very real interpretation of perhaps his intentions of: "Homogays should get married to opposite-gender partners!"
Saying exactly what he actually DID say, the Shrewd One has "had his cake and eaten it too," with a careful win-win response which satisfies most everyone on both sides of the fence.
Christ Jesus reminded us: "By your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned."
There is great benefit from righteous publicity and advertisement, and great harm from wicked publicity and advertisement, whether for modesty or immodesty (regarding and concerning names of accessible websites on the internet).
"[Men] will give account for every word they have spoken" says Scripture . . . so revilers and blasphemers Ed Schultz, Rachel Maddow, Bill Maher, Mike Malloy, Neil Boortz, Lawrence O'Donnell, etc. would do well to heed that warning!
To have "faith" apart from Christ (i.e. apart from Jesus) is at least dangerous, and at worst, lethal insanity.
Morality can be, has been, and will continue to be legislated . . . but frequently neither the morality legislated or the legislated morality is obeyed, and ultimately no one can permanently or even temporarily be or is forced to comply with it. But there has been, are now, and will be consequences from law enforcement and the courts, and certainly from the Lord, against those who neither conform to nor comply with legislated morality.
"Keep your laws off my body?"
"Keep your body off my militarily-enforced territory!"
It is despicable to see and hear TV and radio talkshow hosts on MSNBC, Twin Cities AM 950, and even Neil Boortz on FOX radio essentially promoting "born-that-way" "choice-less" homogays and homosodomy, abortion homicide, evolution, atheism, disruptive unions and protests, and similar deviations . . . plus incessantly and relentlessly, spitefully and hatefully, maliciously misrepresent, ridicule, revile, and blaspheme those of the Christian political right and their Biblically-congruent statements .
Now, most of us are not in a position to verbally or physically confront them personally wherever they presently are located within our country of defamatory-speech freedom. The vicious and vulgar slander emanting from the vile holes under the condemnatory and judgmental noses of the damned-to-become is more often than not "what goes with the territory" amongst those who deplorably do whatever they can and seemingly "get away with it." However:
Jude 1:3 Beloved, being very eager to write to you of our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith [in the courts, on the internet, and by snailmail] which was once for all delivered to the saints.
4 For admission has been secretly gained [into households and businesses via MSNBC and others on TV and radio] by some who long ago were designated for this condemnation, non-godly persons who pervert the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.
5 Now I desire to remind you, though you were once for all fully informed, that he who saved a people out of the land of Egypt [or early pioneer/pilgrim America], afterward destroyed those who did not believe.
6 And the angels that did not keep their own position but left their proper residence have been kept by Him in eternal chains in the nether gloom until the judgment of the great day;
7 just as Sodom and Gomorrah [e.g. Minneapolis, San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, etc.] and the surrounding cities, which likewise acted immorally and indulged in unnatural lust, [e.g. promoting and/or committing abortion homicide and homogay sodomy] serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.
8 Yet in like manner these men in their dreamings defile the flesh, reject authority, and revile the glorious ones. 10 But these men revile whatever they do not understand, and by those things that they know by instinct as irrational animals do, they are destroyed.
11 Woe to them! For they walk in the way of Cain, and abandon themselves for the sake of gain to Balaam's error, and perish in Korah's rebellion.
13 . . . wild waves of the sea, throwing up the foam of their own shame; wandering stars for whom the nether gloom of darkness has been reserved for ever.
14 It was of these also that Enoch in the seventh generation from Adam prophesied, saying, "Hey, the Lord came with his holy myriads,
15 to execute judgment on all, and to convict all the anti-godly of all their works of anti-godliness which they have committed in such an anti-ngodly way, and of all the harsh things which anti-godly sinners have spoken against Him."
16 These are grumblers, malcontents, following their own passions, loud-mouthed boasters, flattering people to gain advantage.
17 But you must remember, beloved, the predictions of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;
18 they said to you, "In the last time there will be scoffers, following their own anti-godly passions."
19 It is these [particularly demoncrat mediapersons like on MSNBC and even CNN] who set up divisions, worldly people, devoid of the Spirit.
20 But you, beloved, build yourselves up on your most holy faith; pray in the Holy Spirit;
21 keep yourselves in the love of God; wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
It certainly is best to leave retaliation against them up to the LORD Himself, who obviously can and will sometimes very publicly wreak humiliating but profound, gradual or sudden but eventually-complete, retribution against those accursed diabolical subversives.
It is not that Ed Schultz, Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O'Donnell, Mike Malloy, etc. have personally defamed most of us by exposing and declaring our personal or pen names. If they did, and caused verifiable illegal libel resulting in court-determined reputational and occupational and financial harm to any of us, complicated and time-consuming criminal and civil lawsuits, even of the class-action type with endless appeals, could be the expensive remedy.
Ac 16:37 But Paul said to them, "They have beaten us publicly, uncondemned, men who are Roman citizens, and have thrown us into prison; and do they now thrown us out secretly? No! let them come themselves and take us out."
Ac 16:38 The police reported these words to the magistrates, and they were afraid when they heard that they were Roman citizens;
Ac 16:39 so they came and apologized to them. And they took them out and [politely?] asked them to leave the city.
1Co 4:19 But I will come to you soon, if the Lord wills, and I will find out not the talk of these arrogant people but their power.
1Co 4:20 For the kingdom of God does not consist in talk but in power.
Third John 1:2 Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in health; I know that it is well with your soul.
3 For I greatly rejoiced when some of the brethren arrived and testified to the truth of your life, as indeed you do follow the truth.
4 No greater joy can I have than this, to hear that my children follow the truth.
5 Beloved, it is a loyal thing you do when you render any service to the brethren, especially to strangers,
6 who have testified to your love before the church. You will do well to send them on their journey as befits God's service.
7 For they have set out for his sake and have accepted nothing from the heathen.
8 So we ought to support such men, that we may be fellow workers in the truth.
9 I have written something to the church; but Diotrephes, who likes to put himself first, does not acknowledge my authority.
10 So if I come, I will bring up what he is doing, prating against me with evil words. And not content with that, he refuses himself to welcome the brethren, and also stops those who want to welcome them and puts them out of the church.
Concerning (NOT "regarding") those responsible for and behind the constant barrage and parade of noxious, smart-ass, toilet-filth ticker comments running like rancid diarrhea on the bottoms of TV screens during MSNBC's nightly Ed Show, we - in our rage-based hopes and dreams - could see ourselves first throwing battery acid into the eyes of such putrid scum concocting such treasonous tripe, chopping off their Twittering typing fingers, then firing a series of .44 magnum bullets into their right kneecaps, then left ones, then their right shins, then their left shins, then their right shoulder blades, then their right shoulder blades, then into their crotch of each, then wait a while while they scream and writhe in anguish. Before collapsing into comas from increasing blood loss, we would angrily continue on hoisting them up on nooses, fire bullets into their guts, then directly into their hearts, then right between their eyes, and finally decapitate them and burn the corpses with gasoline.
God, I assume (and not presume) perhaps has better ideas. Certain types of incapacitating and crippling vehicle accidents, poisonings, being severely burned in a fire, bowel and other cancers, for exanple, can be quite painful, though sometimes gradual - and that is only for starters, to punish them for their impious and irreverent rants of defamation, quasi-blasphemy, and vulgar-pottymouth diatribes against Christianity, Judaism, and even Islam.
"Gay" "rights?" Abortion "rights?"
Are the deviant not errantly trying to interchange and equivocate a "right" with a "capacity" to do evil?
Jer 4:10 Then I said, "Ah, Lord GOD, surely you [?] have complete deceived this people and Jerusalem, saying, 'It shall be well with you'; whereas the sword has reached their very life." [So, is Jeremiah blaming God?]
Jer 23:17 They say continually to those who despise the word of the LORD, 'It shall be well with you'; and to every one who stubbornly follows his own heart, they say, 'No evil shall come upon you.'" [Ah, NOW we know who all to REALLY blame!]
It is remarkable that the Lord hesitates so long to cut out the tongues of those quasi-blasphemous relentlessly-questioning-and-accusatory talkshow hosts, and sometimes has another Scripturally-detailed plan against those who impose their blasphemous daily and nitely tirades:
Le 24:10 Now an Israelite woman's son, whose father was an Egyptian, went out among the people of Israel; and the Israelite woman's son and a man of Israel quarreled in the camp,
11 and the Israelite woman's son blasphemed the Name, and cursed. And they brought him to Moses. His mother's name was Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan.
12 And they put him in custody, till the will of the LORD should be declared to them.
13 And the LORD said to Moses,
14 "Bring out of the camp him who cursed; and let all who heard him lay their hands upon his head, and let all the congregation stone him.
15 And say to the people of Israel, Whoever curses his God shall bear his sin.
16 He who blasphemes the name of the LORD shall be put to death; all the congregation shall stone him; the sojourner as well as the native, when he blasphemes the Name, shall be put to death."
23 So Moses spoke to the people of Israel; and they brought him who had cursed out of the camp, and stoned him with stones. Thus the people of Israel did as the LORD commanded Moses.
Nu 12:1 Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses because of the Cushite woman whom he had married, for he had married a Cushite woman;
2 and they said, "Has the LORD indeed spoken only through Moses? Has he not spoken through us also?" And the LORD heard it.
3 Now the man Moses was very meek, more than all men that were on the face of the earth.
4 And suddenly the LORD said to Moses and to Aaron and Miriam, "Come out, you three, to the tent of meeting." And the three of them came out.
5 And the LORD came down in a pillar of cloud, and stood at the door of the tent, and called Aaron and Miriam; and they both came forward.
6 And he said, "Hear my words: If there is a prophet among you, I the LORD make myself known to him in a vision, I speak with him in a dream.
7 Not so with my servant Moses; he is entrusted with all my house.
8 With him I speak mouth to mouth, clearly, and not in dark speech; and he beholds the form of the LORD. Why then were you not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?"
9 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against them, and he departed;
10 and when the cloud removed from over the tent, behold, Miriam was leprous, as white as snow. And Aaron turned towards Miriam, and behold, she was leprous.
11 And Aaron said to Moses, "Oh, my lord, do not punish us because we have done foolishly and have sinned.
12 Let her not be as one dead, of whom the flesh is half consumed when he comes out of his mother's womb."
13 And Moses cried to the LORD, "Heal her, God, I beg you."
14 But the LORD said to Moses, "If her father had but spit in her face, should she not be shamed seven days? Let her be shut up outside the camp seven days, and after that she may be brought in again."
Num 25: 1 While Israel dwelt in Shittim the people began to play the harlot with the daughters of Moab.
2 These invited the people to the sacrifices of their gods, and the people ate, and bowed down to their gods.
3 So Israel yoked himself to Baal of Peor. And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel;
4 and the LORD said to Moses, "Take all the chiefs of the people, and hang them in the sun before the LORD, that the fierce anger of the LORD may turn away from Israel."
5 And Moses said to the judges of Israel, "Every one of you slay his men who have yoked themselves to Baal of Peor."
6 And hey, one of the people of Israel came and brought a Midianite woman to his family, in the sight of Moses and in the sight of the whole congregation of the people of Israel, while they were weeping at the door of the tent of meeting.
7 When Phinehas the son of Eleazar, son of Aaron the priest, saw it, he rose and left the congregation, and took a spear in his hand
8 and went after the man of Israel into the inner room, and pierced both of them, the man of Israel and the woman, through her body. Thus the plague was stayed from the people of Israel.
9 Nevertheless those that died by the plague were twenty-four thousand.
10 And the LORD said to Moses,
11 "Phinehas the son of Eleazar, son of Aaron the priest, has turned back my wrath from the people of Israel, in that he was jealous with my jealousy among them, so that I did not consume the people of Israel in my jealousy.
12 Therefore say, 'Hey, I give to him my covenant of peace;
13 and it shall be to him, and to his descendants after him, the covenant of a perpetual priesthood, because he was jealous for his God, and made atonement for the people of Israel.'"
14 The name of the slain man of Israel, who was slain with the Midianite woman, was Zimri the son of Salu, head of a fathers' house belonging to the Simeonites.
15 And the name of the Midianite woman who was slain was Cozbi the daughter of Zur, who was the head of the people of a fathers' house in Midian.
16 And the LORD said to Moses,
17 "Harass the Midianites, and smite them;
18 for they have harassed you with their wiles, with which they beguiled you in the matter of Peor, and in the matter of Cozbi, the daughter of the prince of Midian, their sister, who was slain on the day of the plague on account of Peor."
De 21:18 8 If a man has a stubborn and rebellious son, who will not obey the voice of his father or the voice of his mother, and, though they chastise him, will not mind them,
19 then his father and his mother shall take hold of him and bring him out to the elders of his city at the gate of the place where he lives,
20 and they shall say to the elders of his city, 'This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton and a drunkard.'
21 Then all the men of the city shall stone him to death with stones; so you shall purge the evil from your midst; and all Israel shall hear, and fear.
22 And if a man has committed a crime punishable by death and he is put to death, and you hang him on a tree,
23 his body shall not remain all night upon the tree, but you shall bury him the same day, for a hanged man is accursed by God; you shall not defile your land which the LORD your God gives you for an inheritance.
But now, on to the topical subject matter, as we (as of this writing) approach the Recall Election of anti-public-service-unions Wisconsin-Governor Scott Walker.
WOULD Jesus Himself (completely contrary to MSNBC's Rachel Maddow) advocate voters showing up to vote at polling places for political elections and presenting some sort of photo I.D. such as a Drivers License?
If He did advocate such, would it be for the sole purpose NOT of suppressing voter rights, but instead to prevent multiple-vote-per-voter FRAUD?
Let's review some of what He said (according to what is contained within the Bible which His Holy Spirit inspired His prophetic and apostolic writers to author) concerning not being dishonest about one's actual personal identity and whether or not they have already voted in a particular election:
Ex 20:16 You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
Ex 23:1 You shall not utter a false report. You shall not join hands with a wicked man, to be a malicious witness.
Ex 23:7 Keep far from a false charge, and do not slay the innocent and righteous, for I will not acquit the wicked.
De 5:20 Neither shall you bear false witness against your neighbor.
De 19:16 If a malicious witness rises against any man to accuse him of wrongdoing,
17 then both parties to the dispute shall appear before the LORD, before the priests and the judges who are in office in those days;
18 the judges shall inquire diligently, and if the witness is a false witness and has accused his brother falsely,
19 then you shall do to him as he had meant to do to his brother; so you shall purge the evil from the midst of you.
20 And the rest shall hear, and fear, and shall never again commit any such evil among you.
21 Your eye shall not pity; it shall be life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.
Ps 24:3 Who shall ascend the hill of the LORD? And who shall stand in his holy place?
Ps 24:4 He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully.
Ps 26:4 I do not sit with false men, nor do I consort with dissemblers
Ps 27:12 Give me not up to the will of my adversaries; for false witnesses have risen against me, and they breathe out violence.

Ps 119:104 Through your precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way.
Ps 119:128 Therefore I direct my steps by all your precepts; I hate every false way.
Pr 6:16 There are six things which the LORD hates, seven which are an abomination to Him:
Pr 6:17 haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
Pr 6:18 a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that hurry to run to evil,
Pr 6:19 a false witness who breathes out lies, and a man who plants discord among brothers.
Pr 12:17 He who speaks the truth gives honest evidence, but a false witness utters deceit.
Pr 14:5 A faithful witness does not lie, but a false witness breathes out lies.
Pr 17:7 Fine speech is not becoming to a fool; still less is false speech to a prince.
Pr 19:5 A false witness will not go unpunished, and he who utters lies will not escape.
Pr 19:9 A false witness will not go unpunished, and he who utters lies will perish.
Pr 21:28 A false witness will perish, but the word of a man who hears will endure.
Pr 25:18 A man who bears false witness against his neighbor is like a war club, or a sword, or a sharp arrow.

Joh 10:38 but if I do them, even though you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me and I am in the Father."
Joh 14:11 Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father in me; or else believe me for the sake of the works themselves.
Presentation of photo I.D. at elections would be advocated by Saint Paul:
1Co 16:21 I, Paul, write this greeting with my own hand.
2Co 11:13 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ.
2Co 11:14 And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.
Ga 6:11 See with what large letters I am writing to you with my own hand.
Col 4:18 I, Paul, write this greeting with my own hand. Remember my fetters. Grace be with you.
2Th 2:2 not to be quickly shaken in mind or excited, either by spirit or by word, or by letter purporting to be from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come.
2Th 3:17 I, Paul, write this greeting with my own hand. This is the mark in every letter of mine; it is the way I write.
Phm 1:19 I, Paul, write this with my own hand, I will repay it--to say nothing of your owing me even your own self.
2Ti 3:14 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it.
Re 2:9 'I know your tribulation and your poverty (but you are rich) and the slander of those who say that they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.
Re 3:9 Hey, I will make those of the synagogue of Satan who say that they are Jews and are not, but lie . . . hey, I will make them come and bow down before your feet, and learn that I have loved you.
Even the demons "believe," and shudder, according to James. So they have "faith" in the sense of belief, even involuntary submission and accomodation to what God wants and allows them to do.
They are forced by Law to do what is correct - as much as the Lord so forces them to obey what the Law requires in whatever ways and to whatever extent He desires. So they have a "righteousness" of their own, but one which will do them no good when they are ultimately judged.
But their "faith" is feigned and artificial, because there is no willing dependence upon the Lord, as they - of necessity - are strong-armed by the Almighty to comply as much as He wants them to. Such "faith" of theirs neither absolves nor forgives their sins, nor does such "faith" cause them to be considered righteous:
Php 3:8 Indeed I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as refuse, in order that I may gain Christ
9 and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own, based on law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith;
12 Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect; but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own.
13 Brethren, I do not consider that I have made it my own; but one thing I do, forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead,
14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
15 Let those of us who are mature [instead of childish] be thus minded; and if in anything you are otherwise minded, God will reveal that also to you.
16 Only let us hold true to what we have attained.
17 Brethren, join in imitating me, and mark those who so live as you have an example in us.
18 For many, of whom I have often told you and now tell you even with tears, live as enemies against the cross of Christ.
19 Their end is destruction, their god is the belly, and they glory in their [pro-abortion-homicide and pro-homopervert and pro-evolutionary-mythology/heresy] shame, with minds set on earthly things.
20 But our commonwealth is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,
21 who will change our lowly body to be like His glorious body, by the power which enables Him even to subject all things to Himself.
