I have an interesting question and hopefully it’ll raise some good answers.
I’ve always looked upon suing (taking legal action against a person or organisation) as being sinful. This came from the fact that my grandmother used to tell me it was when I was a kid.
When I think of it today, I see suing as an act of vengeance, an act that defies Christ’s principle of forgiving others. For example, if I have an operation, but the surgeon performs the surgery incorrectly, shouldn’t I just forgive him and find a better surgeon rather than trying to get money out of him by suing him?
Also I see there is no official Church teaching on the matter, but this is the case with many things.
Could my observation be correct?
