MLK

Rick, This is why MLK is being erased. It is all about erasing moral absolutes and turning it all into situational ethics as you can see with our City Council opinions. Rob From an article on him in todays (Saturday) WSJ: “Today, almost 1,000 cities and towns in the U.S. have streets named in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr., and more than 100 public schools bear his name. In Washington, D.C., a 30-foottall MLK memorial stands within sight of the Lincoln and Jefferson memorials. And each year, in January, we celebrate Dr. King’s birthday as a national holiday. But in hallowing King we have hollowed out his legacy. We remember his dream of unity and justice without deeper consideration of the radical Christianity upon which that dream was built. King’s Christianity presents a challenge to liberals, who are often uncomfortable with religion in the public square, as well as to conservatives, who are more likely to embrace religion in politics but don’t align themselves with the implications of many of King’s core beliefs”.
