95 Theses for Christian Racial & Ethnic Unity: #14

“One of the great tragedies of life is that men seldom bridge the gulf between practice and profession, between doing and saying. . .On the one hand, we proudly profess certain and sublime and noble principles, but on the other hand, we sadly practice the very antithesis of those principles. . .We talk eloquently about our commitment to the principles of Christianity, and yet our lives are saturated with the practices of paganism. . .We make our fervent pleas for the high road of justice, and then we tread unflinchingly the low road of injustice.”

Martin Luther King, Jr., “Love in Action,” Strength to Love (Philadelphia: Fortress Press, 1981 [1963]), 40.
