Stephen Chapman: Did Bush Blaspheme?

In my view, when the state takes on messianic significance, it ceases to be justly authorized (e.g., Romans 13 describes this kind of state) and becomes essentially demonic (e.g., Revelation 13 describes this kind of state). The only possible response for Christians then becomes one of civil disobedience.

Um, or maybe first we could write a few letters, you know? Let him know we're concerned, give him a chance to explain himself, amend or retract what he said?

What is it with college professors, where their first instinct is always to stage a protest or an act of civil disobedience? Howsabout we try civility, first???
