In his column on the Jan. 31 Journal Opinion page, Cal Thomas justifies the unwavering evangelical Christian support for an obviously morally compromised president by quoting Romans 13-1. However, Thomas Paine in "Common Sense" destroyed the idea that kings ruled by “divine right” and the Declaration of Independence demonstrates that the founding fathers agreed because it states clearly: “… That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its Foundation on such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such Form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.” - Douglas VanDerVoort, Sioux City
