Personal Beliefs/Rights vs The State

Pope Shenouda III

So how far should the state intervene into someone’s life? does the state has the right to protect you from yourself?

How far should we comply to the state? when should we go against it? WHO has the right to encourage a certain group to go against the system? Everybody? Nobody?

Is it right to “use” religion against the state? Is it right to “use” the state against religion?

What makes sense to you personally and what doesn’t?
