What to make of Greg Boyd?

Take a trip to this blog and read the recommended NY Times article. Watch the video too, and consider what we learn from Boyd. He is considered by most to be radical - a propnent of Open Theism, that God either does not know the furture or that God only knows that part of the future that is knowable. There are major concerns here. But in this article and video, Boyd at least calls us as evangelical Christians to think about our nationalism. In Romans 13, Paul commands us to give respect and honor to those deserving of respect and honor. Does Boyd think our nation's leaders (especially the military) are undeserving of these tributes? Where do we draw the line between idolatry and honor?
