Bias: Having lost that tingly feeling up his leg, MSNBC's Chris Matthews savages GOP presidential candidates as belonging to cults. Well, at least they didn't spend two decades listening to the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.
Imagine the uproar if Rush Limbaugh had called Islam a cult. Yet there was Matthews, whose legs once twitched at every word coming from Barack Obama's teleprompter, telling fellow MSNBC left-winger Ed Schultz in the presence of the Rev. Al Sharpton that the GOP has "two RCs Roman Catholics running and a Mormon, so three cultists running."

But there's also a place for resistance to tyranny. For example, a tyranny that attempts to shut down or suborn the faith is one that needs to be resisted, passively if not actively.
In the case of the Spanish Civil War, something like 3000 priests were shot by the "Republicans" (= Communists). Not for any crime they had committed, but simply for being Catholic priests. I would tend to think that the "Christians" you're talking about would react the same way to a state that shot thousands of Christian ministers for no reason except their identity. Maybe they would be far less indulgent toward that state than the Spanish Catholics were.
Well we are going to get a chance to see how Christians react to persecutions. My grandfather fought in the revolution and again in the Christero war. Two priest were some of the best fighters in the war. He immigrated to the USA when the “peace” resulted in a bunch of priests and fellow Catholics put up against the wall.
What an excellent line! I love IBD.
