How Christians Are to Act When Tyrants (Like Trump) Arise

Choose death rather than to deny the truth, to commit any heinous crime, or to be compelled to consent to a wicked and horrible sin. If you choose to die rather than to do a filthy deed, the tyrant shall not enforce or compel you against your will. He may indeed kill you: but to compel you to do evil against your will he is not able; for by dying you confess the truth, and by dying you declare that you will not do that which, while alive, they do demand of you. And by that means they neither overcome nor compel you; but are themselves overcome and compelled to see and have evidence of the very thing they wish to destroy. — Heinrich Bullinger
