So if you are one of those people like me that thinks on principle rather than what might be the smartest thing to do for your own benefit, what would you do in this situation?

What I would do is keep your recorder ready for further instances of bullshit. Should he rise to the occassion, talk to him outside of class (office hours, maybe?) and explain that you think he's being unprofessional. This would probably also be the time to show him your research on Josephus. If he's a good professor, he'll at least consider your input and keep the preaching out of class. If he's not a good, he'll do it again and you'll have ammunition to go over his head. But the most important thing I can recommend here is: Do NOT go over his head without first giving him a chance.

So, say he goes off again. Go directly to the head of your department (I don't know if you have the same system we go in Canada) or to the dean. Document when you talked to whom about what. Then let the process take it from there. Chances will be that yours will not have been the first complaint.

Good luck!
