I want to start of with by saying that today, we observe the special day, that gave humanity one of its most powerful, spiritual speakers and human rights campaigners: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
This gentleman has a special significance in my own life, not because I am of the same background as he (actually, I am not), but because upon learning more about him, long after his death, his message rang true – even though so many of the “civil rights” groups seem to misinterpret his message for the world. I am talking about the fact that Dr. King’s message was for EVERYONE, and it was about loving EVERYONE, regardless of background, race, skin-color, creed, ethnicity, or any other sort of involuntary characteristics that just happen to occur with one’s birth. We are talking about his famous line of judging one by the content of his/her character.
As an ordained minister,
His message and the things he taught many folks, had an extra meaning and even more prominence towards those who listened AND (hopefully) learned from him. He was a genuine equal-rights campaigner. He did not want to see ANY discrimination on the basis of race or skin-color, even of the “affirmative action” type. He would have bitterly opposed “affirmative action” as it was still an issue based on race and skin-color. He did not believe in the forced redistribution of wealth based on race or skin-color. He did not believe in any kind of preference programs, especially based on race or skin-color. He did not believe in taking out violent revenge upon those who just happen to be of similar race or skin-color to the former perpetrators of these wrongs. He did not believe in “reparations” for past misdeeds to be forced upon those who are descendents of the former perpetrators of these wrongs. He did not believe in any limits to free speech and expression, by themselves, based on race and/or skin-color. He did not believe that one race is always the victim and the other always guilty of such ungodly conduct. He did not believe it was the state’s duty to decide what was acceptible conduct and to and from whom. He believed that society could right itself, in accord to the Natural (or God’s) Law when given adequate chance and the opportunity in light of knowledge and wisdom. He believed that social ills could be resolved and injuries healed by Love, compassion, and understanding that God created all, with the intended affect that we could all live peacefully together, without the force of the state constantly interfering in one’s personal matters.
Dr. King walked as a man of God. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and others of the same mindset could stand to learn a thing or two from Dr. King’s own words. They could become far more effective and enlightening IF they were to truly honor Dr. King’s “Dream” for a better America, rather prevaricate and posture themselves as the saviors, while profiting immensely from the continued hatred they preach. Dr. King lived as a minister should. His vision was that ALL LIVES MATTERED!
The next time someone gets a chilly reception, or even threatened and publicly censured for ever daring to say, “ALL lives matter”, against the current social context being pushed before us, the deniers need to be reminded of Dr. King’s words of truth: “ALL are equal in the eyes of God”.
To this day,
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., God bless you and thank you for your divinely-inspired words of truth and power! May all who call themselves civil rights campaigners and “fighters for justice” eventually be forced to bow down to the universal truth that God made all, with equal Love towards all. May His message and its lessons be heard, learned, and cherish by ALL, equally. God is neither white, black, nor any specific skin-color, race, religion, etc. God IS, is was ALWAYS, as shall FOREVER BE; ALL things and everything.
