We’re well overdue for change. If we were in need of it before Obama, well, he doubled that need. This is a different kind of change proposed and for a different type of people it applies to. The type who normally frown on civil disobedience, not praise it in all situations.
Columnist to America’s Christians: It’s Time for Civil Disobedience

“Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also.”
– John 15:20
The push back has begun. Christian business owners, lawyers, parents, judges, county clerks, organizations, universities, hospitals, adoption agencies and other individuals and groups have been given an ultimatum by five unelected, unaccountable liberals in Washington, D.C.: “You must now obey us and disobey God. You must pretend, with us, that sin-based same-sex ‘marriage’ is an actual thing.”
To which we say, “Not on your life.”
“Or our own.”
Many of us have long warned that this day would come, and it has arrived. In the Spirit of Daniel the prophet and MLK the reverend, we Christians must now engage, as relates our peaceful response to the imposition of counterfeit same-sex “marriage,” in widespread civil disobedience. It’s the right thing to do. In fact, it’s a sin if we don’t.
“So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.” (James 4:17)
We’ll see about that push back or how far it goes? Time will tell. My guess is if Pope Francis spoke against same-sex marriage he would be promptly ignored, where he’s celebrated presently for his global warming stand. But what the media really wants to know is if the Pope chews on cocoa leaves in South America — not his view on same-sex marriage.
As to faithful Christians, the call is out. How do they or churches respond?
