Outrage and Fear Fuel Continuing Anti-Trump Protests

Spurred by fear and outrage, protesters around the country rallied and marched Friday as they have done daily since Donald Trump's presidential election victory.

The spirited demonstrations on college campuses and along downtown streets were mostly peaceful following previous outbreaks of window-smashing and fire-setting.

Evening marches disrupted traffic in Miami and Atlanta while organizers said people gathered on Boston Common in what was billed as a rally for peace and love.

Earlier, hundreds of people attended another "love rally" in Washington Square Park in Manhattan.

Leslie Holmes, 65, a website developer from Wilton, Connecticut, took an hour-long train ride to the demonstration — her first protest since the 1970s, when she hit the streets of San Francisco to oppose the Vietnam War.

She described herself as an armchair liberal but declared, "I'm not going to be armchair anymore."

"I don't want to live in a country where my friends aren't included, and my friends are fearful, and my children are going to grow up in a world that's frightening, and my granddaughters can look forward to being excluded from jobs and politics and fulfilling their potential, so I'm here for them," she said.

Then she needs to move. None of those protestors will change a thing - they need to get over it and stop whining and crying.

I just watched Obama's news conference and not once did he address the disorderly conduct going on in our Country. Never in our modern history have we seen riots after an election. Obama continues support racial division, period.

Here's my take on the protests:
1% of the crowd are paid community organizers/protesters.
10% Seriously concerned Americans.
15% People of color (waiting patiently for the first store window to break).
74% Mostly comprised of college students and young people just having one hell of a great time, hoping to hook-up.

George Soros money is fueling these protestors

The Clintons and Obamas are as much to blames as George Soros, who is funding and encouraging these protests. He has much to lose, not being able to manipulate politicians with Trump's win, and is on a warpath against Trump.

"Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore, whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves." Romans 13:1-2

How about some exegesis?
Interpretation?

The authorities that exist are appointed by God.
If they are not appointed by God, then, they are not authorities?

just a thought and a stab at it.
