or should everyone be required to obey the law of the land? Here are some examples of people and groups who've believed they shouldn't be made to obey certain laws. Ethiopian Zion Coptic Church wanted themselves exempt from laws regarding the smoking of cannabis since they considered it an act of worship. Ronald Sparrow fished with a net longer than the required legal length but believed he should be allowed since he was expressing an existing aboriginal fishing right. Bakers were judged to have broken equality laws by refusing to bake a gay wedding cake and are in the process of challenging such judgements. This thread isn't about the individual cases mentioned above, such cases are given as examples of people believing they should be exempted from obeying certain laws.
