Colonists went against the will of God

    I am a Patriot and Constitution defender. However, based upon Romans 13 and 1 Peter 2 in the Bible where Apostles Paul and Peter tell us to obey the government—unless it clearly tells us to disobey God (Acts 5:29). I believe that the Boston Tea Party, Declaration of Independence, and Revolutionary War were not God's will...and set a pattern for future rebels.

Dehumanization

    Dehumanization has a natural progression. It starts by defining a whole race or ethnicity by its worst members, say Muslims or sex offenders. It moves on to enforce generally applicable laws and rules that especially hurt a targeted group. Then, as the public at large becomes desensitized by governent-sponsored declarations of doom and gloom, the group can be singled out for hatred and harm. Thus begins the descent, step by step, into a moral abyss.
