Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. did not march so that Black Nationalists (under the misleading name “Black Lives Matter”) could demand black power and further divide this country along racial lines.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. did not march so that blacks in America could vote Barack Obama into office because of the color of his skin, rather than the content of his character.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. did not march so that blacks in America could lead the country in abortions to the point where more black babies are aborted in New York City than born live, each year.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. did not march so that the black community could go on welfare and throw dad out of the house for the promise of increased government benefits, leading the black community to suffer in poverty as a result of abandoning the traditional family unit (poverty rate for single mother households in the black community is 37%, for households with both parents 8%, for households where both parents work 5%).
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. did not march so that under liberal policies that are legalizing drugs (i.e. marijuana) blacks could get high.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. did march for the hope that people would be judged individually; not based on the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. He marched so that Americans could come together and work together against the leftist forces determined to tear down the American System of liberty and free association. He marched because he believed, “We have an opportunity to make America a better nation…to make America what it ought to be.” He marched so that all Americans would realize that we all have a God-given right to live our lives free from the oppression of tyranny.
Today is Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday. He fought for the individual liberty of all American citizens because Dr. King believed that all lives matter, and all lives should have the opportunity to enjoy the liberty available in America … if only one were willing to pursue it.
He understood that without God, we are not capable of freedom, that without God we live under the rule of man rather than the rule of law, and that without God the liberty and prosperity we so desperately seek is but an illusion.
“Only a virtuous society is capable of freedom.” — Benjamin Franklin
