Anyway, back to my original point. Though I usually can't stand the phrase, I think a WWJD? is appropriate here. When faced with an oppressive government, did Jesus gather up all the "believers" and isolate them in a religious commune in the desert? Of course not: Christianity has a strong doctrine of engagement with the world, not of isolation. I think most Christians will see this idea as "giving up" on the rest of the world, and there just won't be much real interest in it.
