Welcome to Opposing Views Friday. This is the place where I post a question that invites your comments and views on various subjects. The floor is open to you with only three simple requests: 1. Keep your comments short (one thought at a time is helpful) 2. Be respectful and 3. Stay on topic!
The January edition of Christianity Today reports:
Evangelical, Catholic, and Orthodox leaders in November publicly pledged civil disobedience if necessary to live out convictions on abortion, gay marriage, and religious freedom. CT, 01, 2010, p.10
So here is the question: at what point do we as Christians cross that line between living out our convictions in protest, and being proactively disobedient to the state? Should Christians pledge civil disobedience?
