Whispers In The Dark

"This business of burning human beings with napalm, of filling our nation's homes with orphans and widows, of injecting poisonous drugs of hate into the veins of peoples normally humane, of sending men home from dark and bloody battlefields physically handicapped and psychologically deranged, cannot be reconciled with wisdom, justice and love.

"A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death."

-Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Times is peddling the idea that King would be a supporter of Bush's war today. In an effort to counteract this sort of willful ignorance, we present the man speaking for himself, in his own words.
