Using the power of the state to settle religious disputes

In the beginning of the Bible we are given the story of Cain and Abel and how Cain used violence to settle a religious dispute. In the United States of America religious liberty is uniquely important because of the Constitution which bares states or the national government from settling religious disputes. Yet we find in the time of Christ that the Jewish leaders pushed the state to settle a religious dispute which ended in the death of Jesus. It is clearly prophesied in the Bible that in the United State of America the religious leaders will work to overturn the Constitution in order to use the state (police, judicial, and military) to persecute the religious minority which points out the corrupting results of their leadership. 

John19:4 Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him.  

 19:5 Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And [Pilate] saith unto them, Behold the man!  

 19:6 When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify [him], crucify [him]. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify [him]: for I find no fault in him.  

 19:7 The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God.  

 19:8 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was the more afraid;  

 19:9 And went again into the judgment hall, and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer.  

 19:10 Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee?  

 19:11 Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power [at all] against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin.  

 19:12 And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou art not Caesar's friend: whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh against Caesar.
