    Let me try to understand this. They protest and use civil disobedience to show their disdain with cops. They demand the Confederate battle flag come down. And now they are going after the gay right activists and supporters of the SCOTUS ruling....

    THEY HAVE A LOT ON THEIR PLATE, and the summer of 2015 should be interesting to say the least. :wavey:

    I don't understand why you're against this. I take it you think your plan of action is better.
    What is your plan?

    The only thing getting arrested does is get you arrested. We, as Christians, do not need to do something to intentionally get arrested. We should do that which God has commanded and if in the legitimate process we get arrested then so be it. Civil disobedience should never be the end goal. Honoring and keeping God's word should.

    Who exactly are "THEY" who do these things and "have a lot on their plate"?

    From what I see, this is a very conservative coalition that focuses mostly on homosexuality. The one post I see, so far, on race, is a link to a Breitbart article on King's neice saying exactly the stuff you guys say: "Stop ‘Tired,’ ‘Outdated’ Race-baiting". It looks to me like the FB page agrees with that, and thus with you. So how is his plate full? Do you say the same thing when Alan West agrees with you on the moral issues?
    (If this coalition has disdained cops and demanded the confederate flag to come down in the past; I apologize, but I'm not seeing any of that so far, and I've already gone back way before the flag issue; all during the Spring with the cops issue; and it's almost all about marriage and gays, even before all the recent events).

    I think the generalizations are getting way out of control, to the point you'll even shoot your own fellow conservatives before realizing who they really are.

    Sorry I took so long to get back to you. I forgot about the thread. :-/

    Okay, what I find odd is that those who created the Constitution and Declaration of Independence did so from the mindset of men of faith. Nobody seems to doubt that much, and most believers feel that, as originally written, they are sound biblical principles on which the United States was founded.
    But have you read them? Talk about civil disobedience! They disobeyed the King. They advocate overthrowing the government if it grievously abuses power and/or fails to represent the people.
    Is the framework wrong? Except for G-d, it is the highest authority in the land.
    I don't believe we are to blindly follow the leader when we have hearts, hands, and minds. Do we have a right to pray for change while refusing to work within our abilities to help that change come to fruition?

    If only John the Baptist had preached Romans 13 and incorporated his ministry to become a 501c3 church he might have kept his head a lot longer.
