Martyrdom’s threat to the state

Source: Mirror of Justice.

From Paul Kahn‘s “Putting Liberalism in Its Place” (link):

The Western state actually exists under the very real threat of Christian martyrdom:  a threat to expose the state and its claim to power as nothing at all.  In the end, sacrifice is always stronger than murder.  The martyr wields a power to defeat his murderer, which cannot be answered on the field of battle.
