How Christian are Violent Protest Movements?

When Jesus was unjustly executed, his disciples didn’t organize a protest culminating in vandalism.  When Peter was jailed the disciples didn’t storm the jail and demand the jailer’s arrest, they prayed.  When Paul was beheaded the Christians of Rome didn’t riot, burn, pillage, and blunder.  Indeed, he had already instructed the Romans not to violate the law (Romans 13).

When Christians were persecuted (and some were) by the Romans the other Christians didn’t attack them.

Why not?
