Holy Martial Law, Batman!

Clergy response teams, because the bible helps people be calm in a time of crisis:

For the clergy team, one of the biggest tools that they will have in helping calm the public down or to obey the law is the bible itself, specifically Romans 13. Dr. Tuberville elaborated, "because the government's established by the Lord, you know. And, that's what we believe in the Christian faith. That's what's stated in the scripture."

Meu deus do ceu!

Last I checked, a lot of the national leaders of the Christian faith thought that Louisiana was filled with sinners and homos and fornicators and gamblers and abortionists and what not who all deserved to have the wrath brought down on them via natural disasters. Now suddenly Christian leaders want to help these folks, not let 'em get scrubbed off? Who knew!?

Civil rights advocates believe the amount of public cooperation during such a time of unrest may ultimately depend on how long they expect a suspension of rights might last.

Ya think?

If you read the fine print on Durell, he's a counselor (LPC, LMFT). Personally I don't trust such people, but I admire your boldness in using a single counselor from a single riverboat casino town in Louisiana to make Christians out as hypocrites. Some may say neither position represents true Christian belief (Romans suggests that even religious scripture, much less scripture/law of secular society, is a mere stepping stone to guidance along a true spiritual path that can come only from the holy spirit; Pargament's research on coping suggests wanting the evildoers punished doesn't help people grow and cope, at least not directly). But if Mother Teresa's sainthood's in trouble, maybe they can replace her with Heston.
