Classy Conservatism

Now that the end of the Compassionate Conservatism Era is over, it appears that the Right is ushering in a new (and equally ironic) era of Classy Conservatism, in which it's appropriate to do things like pray the new president fails.
When the rule of men conflicts with the commands of God, the Bible leaves no doubt about where we should stand.

That's why I do not hesitate today in calling on godly Americans to pray that Barack Hussein Obama fail in his efforts to change our country from one anchored on self-governance and constitutional republicanism to one based on the raw and unlimited power of the central state.

It would be folly to pray for his success in such an evil campaign.

...Nowhere in the Bible does it teach us to obey evil rulers. Nowhere.

This is a time for principled biblical resistance, not phony Christian appeasement.
Unlike when the Bush administration suspended habeas corpus and farted in the general direction of the Geneva Conventions while torturing alleged terrorists. Now that was the time for phony Christian appeasement!

Stay classy, conservatives.
