“Let’s not burn America down. Let’s take her like she is and rebuild her. We must maintain and advocate and promote the philosophy of non-violence…we must live together as brothers or perish together as fools.” Martin Luther King
MLK understood political liberation emanating from truthfulness and spiritual liberation, all of which would be lost in an “I am King” world.
It is the truth of the mystery of salvation at work today in order to lead redeemed humanity towards the perfection of the kingdom which gives true meaning to movements of liberation in the economic, political, and social spheres, and which keeps them from falling into new forms of slavery. Instruction on Christian Freedom and Liberation, 1986
