Disassociating King from faith is profane

“The ideals and principles for which Dr. King fought have never been forgotten.” The quote from George Lucas served as the answer to the Celebrity Cipher puzzle a few days ago. In truth, evidence abounds that Mr. Lucas and many others have forgotten the “ideals and principles” for which the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. fought.

The Rev. King’s “ideals and principles” are derived from the human liberty established by the self-revealed Creator God. The Rev. King protested the humanist policies and laws that had unjustly kept certain segments of society in bondage and worked to have them replaced with policies reflective of the love of Jesus Christ, the source of dignity for all human beings.

Sadly, many today are eager to replace God’s liberating love with the same humanist and religious philosophies that continually hold us in bondage. Being willfully and purposefully forgotten is the undying faith and love the Rev. King had for his Savior, Jesus Christ. Any and all attempts to disassociate the Rev. King from his Christian faith, which he declared in public throughout all of the rallies, protests and marches are profane acts of idolatry. They are disrespectful to the memory of the very man who so many humanists vainly attempt to honor. They completely disregard the ideals and principles for which the Rev. King fought.

In the words of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.: “I just want to do God’s will. And he’s allowed me to go to the mountain. And I’ve looked over, and I’ve seen the promised land.”

Charles A. Layne, Bunker Hill

 

Keeping police homes off Web limits access

It wasn’t that long ago that police wanted to take their police cars home so there would be a presence in the neighborhood. Now they’re worried about someone finding them?

I guess someone couldn’t just follow them home!

Sounds like someone just wants to limit the public access to public records. Could it be that it might be embarrassing to some of the people who don’t pay their taxes?

If you want your name removed from the tax records then don’t ask to take your government vehicle home, either marked or not. You don’t get to have it both ways.

Ray Harrison, Kokomo
