    They also said his “misuse of Romans 13 to indicate the necessity of obedience to secular law, which is in stark contrast to Disciplinary commitments to supporting freedom of conscience and resistance to unjust laws,” constituted spreading false doctrine.

  3. Titus 1:16 says:

    “We’ve got to be keeping families together,” Trump said earlier today, before he signed an executive order that will stop his policy of separating families at border while also directing Attorney General Jeff Sessions to file a request in federal court to modify a longstanding federal court decree – known as the “Flores settlement” – that prohibits the government from holding children in detention for longer than 20 days. If enacted this could pave the way for the long-term incarceration of families in prison-like conditions. It also remains unclear how the administration will reunite the families that have already been separated at the border. https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/immigration/trump-says-he-ll-sign-order-stopping-separation-families-border-n885061
