“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive hate; only love can do that.” –Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a day dedicated to an era-changing man who is was powerful voice in the Civil Rights movement. He was a man of justice, peace, faith and he continues to be a true inspiration in our society as his historical “I have a dream” speech is quoted repeatedly through the day. While we’ve come so far in garnering the equal rights for every American that he fought to endlessly for, there is still so much to be accomplish.
There is one sector of our society that still, in this modern 21st century, is being legally ignored, discriminated upon and viciously attacked – our unborn children. Just 10 years after Dr. King’s infamous speech, the federal courts magically and unrightfully took away every one of their civil rights and their voice has been silenced by blood and death ever since.
“Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God’s children.”
–I Have a Dream, 1963
You cannot stand for equality and justice and yet celebrate these murdered children – it’s just not logically possible. We can’t sit by yelling for civil rights for all and then turn the other way from 54 million dead babies. It’s hypocrisy in the purest form. If you are a believer in so-called “equal rights for all” and an admirer of Dr. King, you should be up in arms today of all days over these legal hate crimes against American lives and their God-given right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Seriously.
