	I think the Romans passage, etc., does apply quite strongly. We must  
remember that the Roman government was far more vicious towards  
Christians quite frequently during the early church period than it  
appears President-elect Obama will be.

	Of course, at some point we may have to reject a president, but I  
hope it doesn't come to that. I think the Confessing Church in 1930's  
Germany was the best example of when that time arrived. Surely we are  
not there -- and hopefully won't be any time soon.
