    Perhaps you didn't read the OP, but there is not right to marry someone of the same-sex in North Carolina, so nothing is being denied.

    Was it okay for Rosa Parks to refuse to go to the back of the bus and hold up everyone from getting to their destination on time? Possibly making some of them late for work which might cause them to lose their jobs?

    Under the law was it right? No. Were her principals right? Yes.

    Like I said, it's ok for me to protest abortion but it's illegal for me to bar access to an abortion provider and interfere with others access.

    civil disobedience & non-violent protest, in the pursuit of human rights & justice, is OK in my book.

The article says they refused to leave the government office after they were asked to, which to me suggests that something more than just civil disobedience is going on.
    It is done all the time with blocking doors. Their are even those that kill the doctors. So yes the abortionist lawbreakers should be arrested as well. But it does make a point and brings issues to the court.

    The point I'm trying to make is that there is no type of civil disobedience that doesn't involve breaking the law.

    In the 60s there was not the right for black people to eat at the same restaurants as white people. Your point?

    The title lied about why she was arrested, and your personal integrity was compromised when you repeated the lie. the cops did not charge her with applying for a SSM. Please begin being honest.

    And those that kill abortion providers are charged with murder and hauled off to jail. If people are blocking access they are asked to leave and arrested if they refuse. If the article I quoted is the same incident (which I believe it is) then these people broke the law and their arrests are warranted.

    So then why should she have not been arrested if she did break the law? I'm not saying she wasn't practicing civil disobedience, but her actions were illegal and the arrest was warranted.

    I told you why it wasn't a lie. Please use logic.
