Poll Results

December 16, 2007

I have closed the poll on lawsuits and put up one on the "War on Christmas." The lawsuit poll asked: "There have been many conflicts lately between various Christians that have resulted in lawsuits. What do you feel about such legal actions between Christians?" Here are the results:

Always wrong for Christians to sue Christians: 27.5%
Should be avoided if possible, but might be allowed at times: 50.7%
Only okay if suing Christian organizations, but not if suing individuals: 4.3%
Not a big deal: 17.4%
Thanks to everyone who offered their opinion. The most interesting result to me is the virtual lack of support for the third option, which is the argument used by the Missouri Baptist Convention to justify its lawsuit against five ministry organizations. They claimed it would only be unbiblical to sue individuals, although they have since also sued individuals.
