Reader comments about this quote:
Also in this famous speech by the african americanand Christian Martyr, King, was the request that one day people be judged NOT by the color of their skin, but by the contextof their creed...while cleric, King perhaps too sufferend from a couple of gaps -- the education gap in the United States which King's effort worked to erode, if not eradicate. But as Christians we learn that well, to be judged at all is, well it doesn't go along with what Christ taught. i don't wish to be judged AT ALL, and i feel it's necessary to split that sortof hair when consdering Christ and American Christain teachers, even one who was a representative of a caste that had to fight for the right o be allowed to learn to read without fear of murder. My dream personally -- and I am no King, but nonetheless I have a dream...that one day American Christians will understand the Bible..and behave as if they truly understand it.
