Martin Luther King Jr. On War

Most people associate Martin Luther King Jr. with the peaceful civil rights movement, but do not realize that he was an avid protester against the war in Vietnam. So, in one sense, he was a hippie. :) I came across this speech by MLK on the invalidity of war for the christian worldview and it challenged me. It's 22 minutes, but it is a fascinating window into another time and a relevant message in our own time. Enjoy.

MLK was an such an inspiration. His ideals of nonviolence were so admirable, especially since His people at the time had good reason to resort to a violent revolution.
