MLK and Sanctity of Human Life Sunday
In 1963, Dr.Martin Luther King, Jr. wrote, “The church must be reminded that it is not the master or the servant of the state, but rather the CONSCIENCE of the state. It must be the GUIDE and the CRITIC of the state, and never its TOOL. If the church does not recapture its prophetic zeal, it will become an irrelevant social club without moral or spiritual authority.”
Next Sunday, Januart 22, is Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. If he were alive, I wonder what Dr. King would be preparing to say next Sunday in light of the fact that death outpaces life in the African American community as a result of state sanctioned abortion?
Over 16 million black unborn babies have been killed by abortion since 1973. Black babies are being aborted at a rate of over 1,200 a day against the back drop of a deafening silence from Black clergy and political leaders. African Americans are being targeted by Planned Parenthood (PP), the nations largest abortion provider, and the abortion industry. Most Black politicians support the 350+ million dollar a year federal tax dollar give away to PP. The result: Black women represent 6% of the population but are having 30% of all abortions. I would think African American pastors would be incensed and speaking out on behalf of the millions of victims of this holocaust. I think Dr. King would be.
