The church has nothing to say about this issue to the police or in the public square. We must willingly let the state run over Christians and their faith. We must intentionally be cowardly and not bold, and not speak out for justice. The church cannot speak out against these kinds of acts against preachers.
Christianity has not authority over politics. It is entirely acceptable for atheists to tell us how to think, yet it is entirely rude and unloving for Christians to tell others how to think, even though we have normative truth and a fully epistemologically consistent worldview while the atheists cannot account for their knowledge or ethics.
