Faith Activism and Martin Luther King's Legacy

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day was established as a federal holiday almost 30 years ago. This week as we celebrate the life and work of Rev. King, several faith leaders speak out on how well the faith community has upheld the tradition of civil rights and social justice activism.

I don't think today's problems are anything like what MLK and his followers faced. They put their lives on the line--and many of them lost their lives. Today it's not fire hoses or bombs that people face, it's pepper spray.

I think it's pretty "gutsy" to say what MLK Jr. would think about activism, or the Occupy Wall Street movement, in today's world. We can only see his actions as an example of how to act today.
