Speaking the Truth

We don’t like to speak the truth about evil because we’re going to hurt somebody. Let me tell you, you are going to hurt somebody, but that Somebody is God. If you would rather hurt God than your neighbor, there is something wrong with your spirituality. It’s your obligation to speak the truth and everyone can either take it or leave it. But truth must be in us. We live in such poverty of the truth today.

Alveda King

For those of you who don't know, Alveda King is Dr. King's niece. She is a pro-life Republican speaking out against Obama and his policies. I just read an article she wrote about Dr. King's speech and how it could apply to the election (which of course is over now). But that doesn't erase the fact that she says Dr. King would have spoken out against Obama and his pro-abortion views.

Dr. King, in his speech, states "I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."

Hmmmmm.... Really think about that statement. The "content of their character," NOT the color of their skin. Do you think we did that? Do you think we voted for Obama because of the "content of his character?" I don't think so and Ms. King doesn't either. She goes into detail here in this article, reclaiming Dr. King's "legacy" and discussing her own anguish at having an abortion.
