Happy Birthday, Martin

Martin Luther KingJanuary 15, 1929-April 4, 1968

I submit that an individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for the law.

The key to King's statement is his willingness to go to jail for his actions. Evangelical Christians often don't mind breaking the law to make a point, they just don't want to suffer the penalties for doing so.
