Martin Luther King Jr. - Human Relations Sunday

This Sunday in United Methodist Churches we celebrate Human Relations Sunday, which is planned to coincide with the celebration of the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr. I was looking for some MLK quotes today, and was really disturbed to find that one of the highest results on my google search was a site supported/run by white supremacists who were trying to criticize MLK in every way possible. I won't link to them - don't want to support their site - but if you want to check it out to join in my disgust, you can go to www dot martinlutherking dot org - isn't it appalling that they have that domain name? Anyway, enough disgust, and on to a quote to share:

"We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people."
From "Letter from Birmingham Jail," April 16, 1963

Let us heed the words of Dr. King, and find our voice to speak out against injustice!
