  • To what extent do you think that U.S. citizens have a responsibility to follow U.S. laws?
  • Include 5 examples of possible faith/law conflicts.
  • What was Martin Luther King Jr.’s response to what he considered an unjust law (include examples from your reading of his “Letter from a Birmingham Jail”)? **note: his nonviolent protest was not following the law—that is why his letter is a “Letter from Birmingham Jail.”
