Larry Rasmussen re. Dietrich Bonhoeffer

"Bonhoeffer had subordinated his national citizenship to membership
in the transnational church.  Not only Bonhoeffer's priority but his
very identity was first church, then Germany.  Loyalty to the nation
was drastically relativized.  All the nation's claims were qualified by
membership in the Body of Christ as a concrete, international reality."
