Quote for the day

Here’s an interesting quote.

Don’t let anybody make you think that God chose America as his divine messianic force to be a sort of policeman for the whole world. God has a way of standing before the nations with judgment and it seems that I can hear God saying to America, ‘You are too arrogant. If you don’t change your ways, I will rise up and break the backbone of your power, and I will place it in the hands of a nation that doesn’t even know my name.’

Some may think this is a quote from Osama bin Laden or some other crazy terrorist. However, these words were spoken by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta in 1967, regarding war in Vietnam.

I’m not some tree-hugging liberal who opposes all forms of conflict or anything, but just stop and think about that quote for a while…
