PREACH, one Alabama white guy to another!!!
"If you are prepared to imprison a near 80-year-old Baptist preacher and Alabama historian for not obeying that law, at least I will be in good Biblical company. No one logged more time in Roman jails as a matter of moral conscience than the apostle you quoted. He obeyed Roman law when he could, and obeyed Jesus when he could not. The Romans lynched him anyway. But I doubt Christ turned him away from heaven."
