Check out this article on the hypocrisy of public approval of civil disobedience...or not. I mean no disrespect to the memory of Rosa Parks. She did what was correct in her refusing to "go to the back of the bus" in her day. There were other questionable values in her life, however. In the meantime, a man stood for righteousness in the public spotlight and got skewered. This is a thought provoking article for people of faith. I have done teaching on civil disobedience and the scriptures in the past. This is the sort of thing that should give Christians pause. If you are a liberal Christian, you are going to get annoyed with this article. If you value your skin color and racial accomplishments above your faith, then this article will cheese you off. If, however, you allow your faith and the values you claim to shape your opinion, then you will appreciate this article.
