    "On Thursday, eight people from Denver-based Right to Life Action gathered at Focus on the Family's headquarters in north Colorado Springs and eventually entered the lobby, demanding to talk to Focus President Jim Daly about Dobson's flip-flop."

    So being pro-life means that one has the right to trespass without consequence?

    Lets see, tresspassing, making demands, I'd call the police too.

    It would be interesting to know if those trespassers had been financially supporting Focus on the Family?
    Had they use other means to contact the leadership at FOF?
    Had they (fill in the blank)..

    Even if they did, it would not give them the right to trespass. But if they had not, then they would have had less credibility.

    Could it be they felt this was the only way to draw attention to the "problem"
    Suppose they had donated $$ to FOF - they may have felt betrayed!

    Hmm, would this be any different than the Boston Tea Party

    Prehaps then they just shouldn't give more money and write a letter or make a call and leave messages. Rather then violate the law.

    Good work, FOTF! I totally agree with them. How about making an appointment? How about going through the proper channels to speak to Dr. Dobson rather than storming the place like terrorists? How about acting in a Godly manner? I guess that doesn't matter when your ticked, huh?

    The article is vague. To peacefully enter a business and request to speak with someone is not trespass. If they were asked to leave and refused then they would have trespassed.

    Funny...you put "truth" in your username, then do drive-by postings that are intentionally misleading. Maybe a name change would be in order.
