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.
