Demoralizers of the Faith

"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”
As the initial stages of the George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin case proceeds, the media is again resurrecting the issue of racism… and not too far behind are the modern day self-proclaimed civil rights leaders. After listening to their divisive rhetoric (only to help along the administration’s tactic of divide and conquer), I couldn’t help but notice how far off the modern day civil rights leaders are from the creed of the civil rights movement in the 1960’s, led by Martin Luther King Jr. He was a molder of consensus to guarantee equal rights under the law for all men, “endowed by their Creator,” as the Declaration of Independence rightly states.
Let me take you back to the 1960’s. Every participant in the civil rights marches was required to sign the following pledge before they could participate:
However, the self-made civil rights leaders of today, such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, have left off their Bibles and their morals, as they debase themselves and reap nothing but mockery and reproach. Let me contrast the original pledge with the modern version of the pledge, as demonstrated by their actions:
These modern civil rights leaders are demoralizers of the faith. They have turned civil rights into uncivil distribution of privileges, derived by the state. They have left off the Declaration of Independence, therefore throwing off freedom. Under their directives, racism is being taught to a new generation under the guise of decrying racism.
Martin Luther King Jr. condemned the “black power” movement because he knew “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” His point was that men were not to be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. The civil rights movement was about truth and justice, not lies and injustice.
