Michael “Martin Luther” King, Jr., is one of the ‘saints’ of the modern world’s religion. We are told — constantly — that he was a devout Christian. Does this narrative hold up to scrutiny? With many men, there is little enough evidence of what they did or did not believe when they pass, but, in the case of Michael King, there is abundant evidence — created by King himself over a course of decades — of precisely what he did and did not believe with regard to the Christian religion. You may be surprised by the truth.
In today’s episode, we will be going through the writings of Michael King to draw out just precisely what he did — and, perhaps more importantly, did not — believe about the Christian faith. Once you have listened to the evidence, the conclusion will be inescapable: Michael King was no Christian. From there, it gets only worse: Next week, we will examine his politics, his associates, and his personal life. At the end of this episode, you will know he was no Christian; at the end of next week’s episode, you will know what he truly was.
