Liberty Counsel: We Vow To Disobey The Tyrannical Laws Of Obama And Congress

Over at Dead Jerry Falwell's Liberty University, law students are graded down if they fail to vow to honor "God's laws" over those of the state. So it should come as no surprise that the suspected child kidnappers at Liberty Counsel are today asking followers to "pledge their lives" to "resist the abusive and lawless regime in the Executive Branch and in the United States Congress."
Government exists to secure the civil rights bestowed upon us by God. Government can only do its job if it first gets permission from the People. Government is therefore placed under the control of the People and exists to serve the interests of the People. When any government begins to run rough-shod over the People, or when government behaves in a way that contradicts the will of the People, or when government actually destroys the civil rights of the People, then the People have an overriding Right and Duty to change their government and make it behave, or, failing that, they have a Right to abolish that abusive government and craft a replacement as they see fit. Simply put: In America, we do not suffer tyrants!
Via Right Wing Watch, here's the pledge.
