“When we truly believe in the sacredness of human personality, we won’t exploit people, we won’t trample over people with the iron feet of oppression, we won’t kill anybody.” — Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., 1967 Christmas sermon

As my friends Ryan Bomberger of the Radiance Foundation and Bishop Jim Lowe of Guiding Light Church and others weigh in on the unfolding issues and death counts in Louisana, Minnesota, and now Dallas, I'm encouraging everyone to step back from violence, reach out to heaven in prayer, and act to break every chain.

From Ryan: "Here is my response to the destructive activism (and sheer hypocrisy) of the pro-abortion #BlackLivesMatter movement, especially in light of the massacre in Dallas.

"And, Alveda, here's a new video highlighting that #BlackLivesMatter hypocrisy in one sentence. My heart grieves for this needless, evil violence that takes precious innocent human lives (gun violence, police brutality, abortion brutality) from this earth."

Dr. Alveda C. King grew up in the civil rights movement led by her uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. She is director of African-American outreach for Priests for Life and Gospel of Life Ministries. Her family home in Birmingham, Ala., was bombed, as was her father's church office in Louisville, Ky. Alveda herself was jailed during the open housing movement. Read more reports from Dr. Alveda C. King — Click Here Now.
