The Source of Law, Rights, and Martin Luther King Jr

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1dKbveDcwM Please ponder, study, and memorize this statement with me. There is a God, our rights come from Him, and the only purpose of government is to protect and secure our God-given rights.  This week Americans will be paying tribute to this century’s likely brightest orator and most dedicated man to individual liberty, Reverend Michael King Jr. (aka Martin Luther King Jr.). While I am almost certain that the good minister from Atlanta, Georgia, would Read more […]

Baltimore: Whatever Happened to Martin Luther King?

The tactics of Martin Luther King appear to have been completely forgotten. “Protestor #1” – Yo, did you hear what they did to Freddie Gray?!? That ain’t right! Police can’t treat us like no animals. “Protestor #2” – That’s right… let’s go act like animals. Oh, how the nation misses Martin Luther King, Jr! Dr. King never gave an excuse, nor tolerated violence in seeking to right the wrongs of America. He would not have stood alongside the President, our past Attorney General, Read more […]

Police, Racism, and a Happy New Year

As we think about police, racism, and related issues, we need to consider the message of Martin Luther King, Jr. Events in Ferguson, Missouri, this year have definitely put this city in the center of public awareness.  But these events, which followed in the aftermath of a shooting death of a man by a police officer, have also led to protests in other cities including Dallas, Boston, LA, and New York. Modern day so called “civil rights leaders” like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, have Read more […]

Civil Rights or God-Given Rights?

Fifty years ago, when Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. addressed a crowd of 250,000 people gathered in Washington, DC, he called on the people of the various states, and the government of these united States to live up to the principles espoused in the Declaration of Independence. But it was not, as many have falsely claimed, a call for “civil” rights. In fact, in my view, Dr. King was not a champion of “civil” rights. He was a champion of God-given rights. Dr. King made clear in his Read more […]

The False Claim of Civil Rights

It was only a little over seventeen minutes in length but it is said to be the most remembered and the most memorized speech in American History. Fifty years ago, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. addressed a crowd of 250,000 people gathered in Washington, DC. He called on the people of the various states, and the government of these united States to live up to the principles espoused in the Declaration of Independence. But it was not, as many have falsely claimed, a call for “civil” rights. Read more […]

Law, Lawmaking, and Morality

All law and lawmaking is “religious” in the sense that it derives its authority to act from something outside of — above — itself.  In this country, that “something” that our law is based on is the Bible.  This is clearly apparent not only in the text of the Declaration of Independence, but it is also demonstrated in the texts of our earliest covenants, constitutions, law-codes, compacts and charters. And this fact is known and recognized by Christians and non-Christians alike.  For example, Read more […]

MLK: “Be the Best Street Sweeper You Can Be”

It’s shocking to know that Martin Luther King, Jr. said the following considering that if a white person said it he would be called – wait for it – a racist and told that he was demeaning blacks and being stereotypical: “And when you discover what you will be in your life, set out to do it as if God Almighty called you at this particular moment in history to do it. Don’t just set out to do a good job. Set out to do such a good job that the living, the dead or the unborn couldn’t do it Read more […]

What Obama Will Not Say In MLK Speech

Today President Obama gives a speech to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s world-famous “I Have a Dream” speech. A few predictions: After a brief revisionist-history lesson about the vaunted Dr. King, Obama will detail in brief the progress of interracial relations in America. At the start it will be a praising of “how far we’ve come,” but it will ultimately have resorted to a condemnation of white society for having not advanced far enough, which will provoke revivalist Read more […]

Dr. King’s Dream Has Been Savagely Beaten To Death

The 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech will arrive on Wednesday this week, marked by a speech from President Obama on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. As Tavis Smiley, Famous Black Person, notes over at The Washington Post, “The president’s decision to honor the march is proper….” Absolutely true. No president who serendipity selected to have in office during the 50th anniversary of one of the world’s most famous speeches, and certainly in America’s top Read more […]

It Doesn’t Take a Majority to Win

Did you know that homosexuals are not in the majority? They make up about 1.7 percent of the population and yet they control Congress, the courts, the media, and our schools. We are in the majority, but we act like a minority. But even a minority can win. When I ponder the history of the heroes of the faith – Moses confronting Pharaoh, David confronting Goliath, Gideon and his small army of 300 standing against the oppressive Midianites, and King Hezekiah confronted with Sennacherib (the king Read more […]

The Irony Of Obama Inauguration Falling On MLK Day

Today President Barack Obama becomes the first half-white President to complete a first term and the first half-white president to be inaugurated into a second. Presidential inaugurations typically fall on January 20, but as that date this year fell on a Sunday, it was decided that Obama’s second coronation would occur Monday, on the federal holiday of Martin Luther King Day. There is still much argument between left and right as to whether King was a socialist or a conservative, each side Read more […]
