Revisiting the Christian and State Relationship.

Lots of folk milling about. Here’s the goods:

I probably should clarify why I posted this. First, the man broke no laws nor was asked to leave or desist from taking photos by the property owner. No, he is no example of “follow peace with all men” (Hebrews 12:14). Yes, there are quite a number of people who seem to be intentionally seeking out conflict with authorities. The striking part to me is how he was threatened by private persons and then arrested by the state. The state—frequently—is not the white-hatted cavalry galloping over the hill to rescue you. They aided the aggressor here. Probably, this man is fortunate that he was not tasered, regardless of the fact that he was within his rights (as understood in the secular realm).
