Really well said. Religious authority is the authority of Christ and Christ only. It is a spiritual authority to each individual alone. It has nothing to do with worldly coercion and anyone who claims it does is a liar. All worldly, corporeal coercion is just that and nothing more, regardless of whether it 'claims' an authority from God, it does not have it, never has and never will.
Obedience to God is resistance to tyrants.
