Letter From A Birmingham Jail

On his radio show today, Dennis Prager said: “There is not a single founder of this country who did not believe in God, in providence, in God judging nations, the afterlife, that we are judged and that this country could not survive without God.”

“He did go around calling himself Dr. King. He called himself Reverend King.”

“Would the United States have been better off or worse off if there had never been a Martin Luther King? It is not debatable by sane minds [that the U.S. is better off].”

“I got a texting ticket at a red light. If there’s a ticket, I’ve gotten it. It was for about $25. I thought I would get a notice in the mail. Sure enough, I did after a month. For not showing up in court, your bill is $850. And there’s a warrant out for my arrest. There may be a letter from LA County jail from Dennis Prager.”

Dennis complained that every question, he heard, in the Miss America contest was politically charged. “Why must every area be politicized? There is no place to detoxify.

“I was reading an article on Miss Massachusetts. She’s magna cum laude from Harvard. I love that at the center of intellectual feminism, someone from Massachusetts ran for Miss America. The notion that you can be sexy and feminine and bright, why is that considered mutually considered? The sexy should know that they can be bright and the bright should know that they can be sexy. Feminism said they are mutually exclusive. A woman to be taken seriously has to de-emphasize her attractiveness. It was a stupid message. Between a little less brains and a little less hairy legs, I’ll take the less brains.”

H2: The Secularization of a Man of God
Prager H2: Reverend Martin Luther King is now universally referred to as Dr. Martin Luther King. This is part of the Left’s desire to remove the importance of religion from the civil rights struggle… The Administration has released a report endorsing women in combat. This is foolishness in the extreme. Does anybody really believe a combat unit would be enhanced by the presence of women?

H3: Moral Bank Account
Prager H3: Yes, Martin Luther King Jr. had his personal flaws. Yes, he had ideas that conservatives strongly disagree with. But on balance there can be no question that he made a major, vital contribution to this country. His “moral” bank account was very full… Dennis talks Rabbi Shmuley Boteach about his new book Honoring the Child Spirit: Inspiration and Learning from Our Children. They also talk about Shmuley’s defense of Sarah Palin’s use of the term “blood libel” in the Wall Street Journal.
