Making Fun of the President?

There have been MANY times I have seen cartoon illustrations making fun of American Presidents. While a lot of these cartoons are actually funny, did you know that making fun of the President (or any political authority) is wrong? Yes, the Bible says very clearly that we are to not make fun of government officials.

But Paul said to him, “God will slap you, you corrupt hypocrite! What kind of judge are you to break the law yourself by ordering me struck like that?”

Those standing near Paul said to him, “Do you dare to insult God’s high priest?”

“I’m sorry, brothers. I didn’t realize he was the high priest,” Paul replied, “for the Scriptures say, ‘You must not speak evil of any of your rulers.’” – Acts 23:3-5 NLT

It is interesting that the Bible talks about this very frequent occurrence in today’s American culture. The Bible applies today just as much as it did back in Bible time!
