Would Dr. King embraced the prosperity Gospel? Would Dr. King drive his Bentley through the neighbor hood in which he just fleece the Sunday before? Would he watch a whole generation of young people kill off each other and nothing about it?
Would Dr. King watch as our young women become less than zero? Would Dr.King watch as more prisons are build to house our young men? Dr. King was more that a preacher/pastor he was a fighter for his people. I don't think we can put any issues at the alter and the foot of any of our present pastor/preacher feet.
People failed to know or appreciate how King's Christian background as a Baptist preacher and ties to the Black Church influenced his political involvement. The civil rights movement was a political movement but it was also a church movement.
