"Clergy Response Team" to quell unrest

Homeland Security Enlists Clergy to Quell Public Unrest if Martial Law Ever Declared

[...] If martial law were enacted here at home, like depicted in the movie "The Siege", easing public fears and quelling dissent would be critical. And that's exactly what the 'Clergy Response Team' helped accomplish in the wake of Katrina.
Dr. Durell Tuberville serves as chaplain for the Shreveport Fire Department and the Caddo Sheriff's Office. Tuberville said of the clergy team's mission, "the primary thing that we say to anybody is, 'let's cooperate and get this thing over with and then we'll settle the differences once the crisis is over.'" [...]
You really want to watch the video (WMP) here. It's creepy hearing Dr. Tuberville say:
"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."
Want to get really creeped out? Go read Romans 13 (NIV), and remember, this is being invoked to "calm the masses" in case of martial law. According to TBN, Dr. Tuberville is associated with this church: Shreveport Community Church. Not clear as to where they are on the Dominionist scale, but this page on "life cells" tells me to stay away.
