UU Ministers & Civil Disobedience

Philocrites posted a brief review of Political Survey of UU Ministers this week.  Interestingly to me, 86% would participate in "civil disobedience to protest some evil".  I’m curious how many would act on this belief if given the appropriate, and ideally collective opportunity.  As one who has committed such acts before, and on the path to become a UU minister, it is something that has been on my mind.  I think about Rev. Nick Cardell, a long time UU minister who served time for his protest of the School of the Americas.  Here is a nice piece about him from SOA Watch, he died in 2002.  His life and work served in part to inspire my activist around the School of the Americas.
