Speaking Evil Of Rulers

We can certainly express disagreement with the views and policies or our rulers (Trump, Obama, Governors), but we are not to speak evil of them (call them derogatory names, ephithets, etc.):

Acts 23:5b … for it is written (in Exod 22:28), Thou shalt not speak evil of the ruler of thy people.

II Pet 2:10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.

Jude 8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion (same Greek word as in II Pet 2:10 – “government”), and speak evil of dignities.

I Pet 2:17 … honor the king
