We have been taught to obey our civic leaders. Even during WWII, when one side was obviously involved in many atrocities, the First Presidency encouraged the members to sustain their government. Now, whether that means you jump in and start sending Jews to Dachau is another question altogether. In my view, it depends on what the issue is that causes us to seek civil disobedience. After all, we look upon the Founders of the US nation as being inspired, yet they were involved in much civil disobedience (tea, anyone?). I think one must learn to pick his/her battles. Is it worth the fight and discord created? Secondly, is there a legal method to fight bad legislation/action?
