Let’s not beat about the bush… whom did we stand with during the Civil Rights era? Look at the pics! Reflect on this… those who stood AGAINST Civil Rights are now all staunch members of the Republican Party. Fancy that… no wonder that their real motto in the last election was “Put the White back in the White House“. I find that disgusting… and I’m not alone in that. That’s why most ethnic Orthodox gave their votes to the Prez (and the bumper stickers at St T‘s and Jackson backed that up). Makes ya wonder about the konvertsy, doesn’t it (they ARE loud-mouthed Righties)? After all, shitbirds of a feather DO flock together…

28 August 2013. Fifty Years of “I Have a Dream”… We Wuz on the Right Side!

00. 50th anniversary. I have a dream. Martin Luther King. 28.08.13

______________________________

Fifty years ago, Dr Marin Luther King made his famous “I Have a Dream” speech. I’ll not linger on it… the details are available in other places, in more detail and better-put than I could do it. However, I’d like to point up one thing. We Orthodox Christians were on the side of Dr King…. not Bull Connor and George Wallace. After all, Archbishop Iakovos Koukouzis of the GOAA was there on the podium to give Dr King his wholehearted support. That is, we Orthodox supported the activist “progressives”, NOT the racist reactionaries. It’s something for we ethnic Orthodox to remember and for the konvertsy to pause and think about.  Just sayin’…
