Based on the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution, please arrange the following entities, starting with the highest source of authority, and continue the list in descending order of authority, skipping any that do not apply: Academia, Congress, Constitution, God, Industry, Media, Professional Sports, Supreme Court, Voters.

God, Constitution, Voters, Congress, Supreme Court

18. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a Christian and have found salvation through Jesus Christ. Above all else I answer to God in my decision making each day. I am disappointed that over the last 50 years, the church has abdicated its responsibility as the moral compass of our society due to the fallacy of "separation of church and state". It is time to bring God back into the decision making process both in Washington and in Austin.
