Mormons and Obedience to Unjust Laws

Writes JJ Gunther,
This past weekend was our stake conference, combined with 88 other stakes in Southern California (Sunday morning session broadcast from SLC). In both sessions, there were stories about the faithful saints in East Germany who broke various laws in order to promote the growth of the Church, including things such as illegal border crossings and smuggling of banned literature into the country. Anyone who advocates that the 12th Article of Faith requires our obedience to unjust laws would have to think again after hearing these talks.
More on the 12th Article of Faith by Shiloh Logan here. Must read.
