"Non-violent protests never work."
Non-violent protests are acts through which people attain goals through symbolic protests, civil disobedience and other methods, without the use of violence. These non-violent resistance strategies have been present throughout the centuries and although violence is still used in many places over the world, one should often question the use of it. Many people believe that non-violent protests are very beneficial; some because of ethical and moral beliefs, others because of religion. Many Christians generally believe that 'God is Love' leading to the logical corollary that the main enemy is hatred itself. As stated in the New Testament, "But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister will be subject to judgment... And anyone who says, 'You fool!' [to a brother] will be in danger of the fire of hell." (Matthew 5:22) and "Anyone who hates a brother or sister is a murderer..." (1 John 3:15), Christians have come to interpret the terms 'brother' and 'sister' very widely therefore coming to love opponents and even their enemies. However, the way of putting non-violence into practice has been interpreted in many ways.
