Trivia Question

Who wrote these words?

"By their effort and example they brought an end to such ancient evils as infanticide and gladiatorial contests. Things are different now. So often the contemporary church is a weak, ineffectual voice with an uncertain sound." (Emphasis mine.)

Not rhetorical at all. With those comments in mind, I wonder what King would think of the abortion debate today?

I was in college in Atlanta when King was alive. I doubt if he would walk across the street to meet with Obama. And he would have told Joe Lowry to grow up.
