Christians threatened in Iraq

This story at Jihad Watch should remind us all that we are targets simply because we are Christians. If we need to rethink policy in Iraq, it should be our subservience to the purposes of radicals who would do to us what they do to the Assyrian Christians. When we abandon the two kingdom doctrine we either adulterate the Gospel or emasculate secular authority. Luther admonished Lutheran nobles not to wimp out, but to do their duty in protecting the weak, innocent and faithful. How does this fit in to the present misunderstanding of separation of church and state?

    What would we expect our police forces to do if Mosques were defaced and destroyed in Detroit and the entire Muslim population of Michigan given a credible ultimatum to convert or die?
