I set the record straight on.
-- this kind of scratching the surface of the civil rights movement.
What is it what was it what is it really all about vs what progressives and radicals now wanted to think.
It was all about.
You have a right to be free you have a right to live your life -- have -- right to.
Not be harassed -- -- a right to your your life and your liberty and your pursuit of happiness.
That's what this country has always been about but it is always been flawed.
And we've never quite achieve it.
Before we start going backwards.
Let -- let's let's take a look at it again what we're striving for.
We show you how the movement in the 1960s has been perverted and distorted.
If that folks now like -- Reverend Al Sharpton telling people that Martin Luther King's dream.
Was really about redistribution.
Of wealth -- he has.
We use G fleeing al-Qaeda -- national.
But yeah even.
They that he will be better.
-- Britain -- that really.
We also have the NAACP now telling.
Everyone that king.
Was a socialist he said is the NAACP came out I don't I was about six months ago saying.
That we we wouldn't be celebrating Martin Luther King Day if we really knew who he was.
-- a minute hang on just a second and help clear this up listen closely to the chairman of the NAACP.
We we don't remember the king who was the critic of capitalism -- Who says -- Charles Sager what they were jailed together and -- 1965.
That he thought.
A modified form of socialism would be the best system for the United States we don't remember the Martin Luther King who.
Talk to ceaselessly about.
Taking care of the masses.
Not just dealing with the people at the top of the latter.
Add and emphasize that we've we've made him do it different kind of person that he actually was -- -- and it may be.
That that's one reason he's -- celebrated day because we've we've celebrated different kind of man that really existed.
But he was a bit more radical -- not terribly terribly radical but a bit more radical that we make about to be today.
Is that true was his socialist with the economist who was that guy.
Now we have king started any pain as a radical you know what king was a radical.
And just -- Jesus was a radical.
Now we have SC IU Andy Stern Andy Stern doesn't think that Martin Luther King the civil rights legend.
Really was the one that really helped create real change in 2004 he told the Washington Post quote.
Pressure is needed to bring about real change it was not enough to have Martin Luther King Jr.
you needed Stokely Carmichael.
OK so he's he's saying now that Martin Luther King couldn't accomplish what he did without people like stoking car Stokely Carmichael.
Who was the honest the honorary prime minister of the Black Panther Party.
So we have.
The black Panthers.
Being really responsible for real change.
They got it done according Andy Stern because of civil unrest.
Carmichael was knowing -- known for coining the term black power so stern thinks he needs civil unrest to meet demands.
Okay who else is trying to raise the threat of disruption.
To to have the demands met now.
He has -- right.
The new black Panthers the new black Panthers.
We'll see Glenn Beck on August 27 on the national monument the new black -- probably won't see him there since he's attacking us.
Nicely and he won't talk to us will see -- -- national monument on the National Mall.
-- it's -- 28 August -- thing invited to join us peacefully arm in arm as we stand up together.
Of all kinds.
Racism is being used as a tactic for political gain the NAACP.
Is now trying to intimidate Tea Party years.
Passing a resolution to condemn quote the racist elements in the party look I have to take some that.
Racism is real.
Why are we minimizing -- why are we why are we using it for politics.
Why racism is real.
Our other people that -- that a hate blacks or Jews or whites or Asians in the Tea Party sure are there people in the NAACP sure.
Shouldn't we stand shoulder to shoulder against both people.
And we have that in common.
Isn't that the majority of America.
Racism is not a white man's problem.
It is not a black man's problem it is not a Hispanic problem racism is -- human problem.
It is a problem that -- humans have had since the beginning of time.
I don't know when man decided that they could -- each other against each other to rule.
It's wrong when any class it is wrong when any color doesn't.
Martin Luther King.
Tried to get people to unite.
Isn't that what we should be striving for.
What do we unite on we don't unite and color of skin -- it's meaningless.
We unite on character.
It is our responsibility to protect the rights granted -- god.
-- quite frankly the founders fought for did they screwed up did they have it right know has any man ever had it right.
It's the it's the same rights that Abraham Lincoln and blacks and whites fought for in the civil war.
Those are the same rights that king fought for.
Tonight we're gonna talk about those rights individual.
Rights and I'm also gonna ask some tough questions about Dr.
Martin Luther King.
-- But couldn't just one of the most wonderful people you know doctor -- king.
She is the pastoral associate at priests for life she is a niece of Dr.
Martin Luther King she was there.
Daughter of kings brother eighty -- and Stefan broke me he is a senior pastor at fair park Bible fellowship in.
Dallas Texas he's also running for congress.
In that Texas.
Personal that they get any of that wrong doctor king and everything's -- -- -- you -- write in the fifth productive road and just stay home -- but it.
Well I'm a Doctor Who purchased that's right here and we're your universe.
-- -- after I don't know drive them nuts.
A -- let me start with where we started with in the in the monologue.
Did the black Panthers make this civil rights to -- was -- a positive force did that make the civil rights.
Movement would what Doctor King did that make that work.
Happened with the black Panthers -- and now billion.
There is she's about justice and equality of course everybody wants that merely wants -- that.
But my uncle talked about love conquering hate.
He spoke of the unity that you talk about all the time.
He talked about Protestants and Catholics in 2000 jeans black men white men joining together.
-- not going to be able to join together if you're trying to kill each other.
Fine until the violence.
And America and the raids will never bring about the resolutions.
That we need only unity can do that in my uncle -- that.
Was was he a Communist.
My goal is a Christian certainly the values that the Communist Party on paper talked about it the Socialist Party.
It sounded really good on paper but my uncle was not got it bad those -- -- standards when he talked about taking care of the masses feeding hungry.
Taking care of the least of these that was from a foundation following Jesus cry.
That's not not those social -- that's not right that's not so I'll just.
And I guess the last question is Al Sharpton said.
Martin Luther King's dream was.
What he put it in and none of a black man in the White House and that's true I mean that and his streaming either.
-- but he said it wasn't that wasn't his dream.
Was about equal stuff in everybody's house.
Is that even possible if it was a dream that has not that came back after people like Al Sharpton and Julien there.
Any anybody that that was saying that they knew what doctor king's dream alive I just have to nickel back convinced -- My uncle wanted justice to roll down like waters and righteousness.
As a mighty -- And so that's totally different from economic justice and making sure that I have enough money and you give me your money.
And that's not what my uncle Todd that's not what he believed.
As a matter of fact he was a generous and giving me.
And so he would have wanted the quality -- wanted everyone to have enough to eat and somewhere to live of course that's normal in real.
But is back to the principles of belief that -- Caring for every one everyone is I'm rather one human race out of bag that contained one and so -- -- each other was -- dignity.
If that a human issue and -- say.
It's not about race or skin color of their fellow irrelevant Afghan -- -- because that's how we're borrowing but that's not what we're fighting for we're fighting for unity.
The love and for justice and that's what my uncle was about.
OK so let me.
Let me go to you -- on on.
Because what we talked this week.
On the program about collective salvation.
And social justice.
So I would just like to have.
Quick overview of collective salvation.
As I read collective salvation.
That's from the other side betting from god and that is -- as the Pope said.
I'll run that certainly isn't in biblical concept than the concept the within the Bible was an individual personal relationship with Christ.
That means one comes to terms with guns assessment of who they are.
-- makes a declaration that all men are -- And that sin separates us from god OK and then one has to make a decision a personal decision to set the finished work of Christ at the cross that will bring him.
Out of alienation and separation from that.
Into a personal relationship with him collective -- is a concept that is sourced in a doctrine that is anti god.
OK so but that's where.
That's where people get screwed up with with with Dr.
Martin Luther King when you say -- and 81 everybody have a house and food and everything else of course.
I -- tool that we all do that's it that's something that we we should strive for.
But the difference is is when the government.
Says now this is social justice -- when the government says will make everybody equal.
With equal stuff we'll I'll take from you to give somebody else -- house.
That doesn't change anybody's heart in fact I think it makes it colder and darker.
That's a perversion of the gospel that's not what the gospel -- nor was that would Martin Luther King was in pursuit it.
His dream if you go back and visit his dream his dream was about equal.
Access to the American dream right and the and the application of biblical principles connected with the founding principles giving us access.
To our ability to develop as best we can individual.
I think -- that I think the heart.
Deceive the government my uncle saying you know you can't mandate someone's heart you can't make someone.
Love me me and so that we are required that same thing collectively.
That collective group is not gonna have a hard decision.
Accepting the grace and the level -- and their thing I care about you give my brother you're my sister.
And so you have to have a real relationship first.
With did -- -- and then with each other.
And that's what's missing -- that social justice make people do this many people will be right.
What about somebody -- what about the circumcision of the -- -- -- yeah that's tyranny of the worst kind that's the thing that the founding fathers was pushing back against.
And as they develop in a a concept -- the principles.
Within the declaration of independence and it starts with this idea that all men are created equal and endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights.
That's the starting point and the founding fathers were appealing to this fact that there is no distinction.
And the use the word equality.
Between the haves and the have not we are all equal under law not -- in terms of capacity.
You know I may be able to play the piano as a virtuoso.
You can't that how can -- make -- -- there.
I have a natural gift for that thank -- -- great gift I -- in my what is about to break both of your hands -- -- -- -- -- -- right at the -- -- so you put -- up perversion of the idea of equality equality as it is expressed by the founding fathers and -- he had followed in the under.
The law right under the.
Well and the founding fathers is so people say what they have sliced from -- -- the Oliphant and a there -- black founding fathers to slam and even the ones who conflict president Lincoln parade -- -- The flame is wrong and I believe it is less than not we.
And so in that prayer and in those who are actually -- people they knew they were wrong they knew at the end and so we telling him.
Slavery just turned into.
We didn't change hearts in the civil war and so reconstruction.
Turned -- free.
-- unit and have a chain.
A physical -- But you might as well have had a change thing because we didn't change hearts and it turned into something ugly we're still we haven't finished the fight of the civil war.
War that's well.
Here again I think the beauty of the founding fathers -- that they were flawed man.
However that concepts and the principles that they outline for us.
They are above that trump the behavior you perfect and I'm not a -- are you perfect man Doctor King I'm not a -- -- -- far from a perfect man my name the perfect people and what -- and write a flaw it the idea is to take it and try.
Did you did your uncle lead the perfect life.
My uncle and people talk about this and they write about it.
And he says you know don't look at my life you know as you could compare me -- David say you know David got in trouble with the lord.
-- kill Christians who says -- him.
So don't look at our humanity look at what we believe.
Follow us as we follow Christ and he talked about that he says you know I've made mistakes and I can't problems.
But this does not invalidate the fact that we need the grace of a forgiving guy and he talked about that individual and personal relationship with the lord which he had it.
