Who Will Continue Dr. King’s Legacy?

Today we remember the life of a great man, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. He fought for the equality of people across racial, cultural, and ethnic lines. He pushed so that people would be judged by their merit and their character, rather than the amount of melanin in their skin. And though some nowadays try to speak in place of the late Dr. King and say what he would support had he lived, we know that Dr. King’s fight was a fight of holiness. So where are the modern-day Dr. Kings? Where are the reformers who will stand for holiness?

Today, we don’t often battle against the racial injustices of Dr. King’s day. Society has, for the most part, accepted this to be reality. But now we battle another issue. The fight for life.

Ushered in on the wings of black preachers, Margaret Sanger and her Planned Parenthood has made herself an idol to our people. This woman who spoke and was encored by the Ku Klux Klan. This woman who gave inspiration the eugenicist policies of the Nazis. This woman we have made our Saviour. We sacrifice our children at the altars of “sexual freedom,” “women’s health,” and pleasure without consequences and make ourselves no different than the Ancient Moabites and Ammonites who sacrificed to Chemosh and Molech.

If I take to Facebook and speak against this diabolical legacy, I am greeted by comments from black women about how they received health care from Planned Parenthood when they couldn’t get it from anyone else which then begs the question: is Planned Parenthood a gift or the Trojan Horse of the Black Community?

In 2010, Planned Parenthood aborted 333,964 babies in actual medical procedures. Yet if their stats are correct (which I am admittedly skeptical about), then if America, namely Black America, reverted to safe sex (married sex, the only “safe” kind there is), then we’d collectively shut down 76% of Planned Parenthood’s services! 76%!! But where are the people saying that?

Where are the black ministers who constantly watch their choir stands and their pews fill with unwed mothers? Where are the pastors who KNOW their musicians are actively fathering children out of wedlock? Where are the parents and grandparents who, for shame, are taking their daughters and granddaughters to Planned Parenthood to avoid the embarrassment and cost of raising a child out of wedlock?

The pulpits are eerily silent.

Oh there are some speaking up. Wonderful, godly people like Dr. Alveda King (the late Dr. King’s niece), Bishop Harry Jackson, William and Dehaviland Ford, Mike and Cindy Jacobs, Laura Allred, me. God bless those of you who are out there preaching, protesting, and marching! But where are the others? Where are the modern day Martin Luther King Jrs who will stand up to the “lions of injustice”?

Are you happy with your Trojan Horse of “women’s healthcare” or will you forgo for the sake of holiness? What holiness can be found in financially and emotionally supporting those who willfully end the lives of innocent children? The end to both unrepentant supporters is the same: death. Accept unlike the deaths of those pre-born babies, this death is everlasting.

The preachers who initially assisted were swindled. Deceived. The ones who learned and railed against the truth were silenced. But preachers today have no excuse. Where is Jesse Jackson? Where is Al Sharpton? Where are those who protested for Trayvon Martin? Where are the black celebrities, philanthropists, humanitarians? They’ve been bought with a price. And I’m not talking about the blood of Jesus, but the blood of the innocents that cries ever afresh before the eyes and ears of God.

Also on your skirts is found the blood of the lives of the poor innocents. I have not found it by secret search, but plainly on all these things. Yet you say, “Because I am innocent, surely His anger shall turn from me.”  Behold, I will plead My case against you, because you say, “I have not sinned.” (Jeremiah 2:34, 35)

We would rather get our free healthcare and buy our abortion-praising Yeezus CDs, than stand for right. We have two choices: comfort or holiness. And make no mistake, silence is also a choice.

Will you cry out?
