Romans 13

I think about conservative Christians’ refusal to accept President Obama (Obama-nation as Herman Cain so disrespectfully puts it) and wonder what part of this Word of God they don’t get.

“Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.” Romans 13:1-2

Am I reading this right? Am I missing something? Am I reading the wrong translation? Is there another interpretation? Is there another scripture that over rules it? Is there an addendum somewhere that says, “Unless….”

Today I heard Rep Peter King call Ted Cruz a maniac. Is that the Republican party bringing judgment on itself?

What does everyone think?
