(AMERICAN THINKER) -- After finding evidence that the "man of God" and "moral conscience of our nation," the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., participated in the rape of a parishioner, engaged in numerous sex orgies, received cash payments from known communists, and admitted that he was a Marxist, King biographer and Pulitzer Prize-winning author David Garrow wrote of King, "There is no question that a profoundly painful reckoning and reconsideration inescapably awaits."
Black Democrats and White liberals rail about the gains derived from the Civil Rights Movement. I ask, "What gains?" If murder, poverty, and mass incarceration are gains, you may have a point. In an attempt to make him untouchable, liberals have protected King's counterfeit legacy by sealing his FBI files until 2027. Nevertheless, his reckoning is here.
But that reckoning shouldn't occur exclusively because of King's immoral behavior. It shouldn't happen because the "Good Reverend's" best friend, Ralph Abernathy, in his book And the Walls Came Tumbling Down, described King beating a woman and sleeping with two others at the Lorrain Motel the night before his death.
