We learned about a Christianity Crisis in Northern Ireland this week. Michael Stone—a Protestant Loyalist who has spent some time in the slammer—recently tried to break into a meeting where Northern Ireland’s fate as a nation was being decided. He intended to try to kill two Republican Catholic leaders. This is just another event in "The Troubles," a time of violence in Northern Ireland between Protestants and Catholics.
Our question is are people like Michael Stone right to try to protest with violence? Does violence as a form of protest make sense?

So what do you think? Is passion for your religion ever worth a violent protest?
