Where are GOD'S Three Wisemen of Our Time? The Past gave us Jesus and Martin Luther King and Ghandi Today We have Dr. Sowell and Dr. Carson and Cardinal Dolan Where are GOD'S enemies of Our Time?

ML King was largely irrelevant. Segregation would have ended anyway . It's time was over. His only claim to fame was that he was assassinated. Without that, he would be largely forgotten now. The left like to have a hero, so they manufactured him.

Ghandi is also irrelevant. The British Empire was coming to an end anyway. After the American colonies seceded, Britain never again kept a colony against the wishes of its people. Australia, South Africa, Canada, and N Zealand were all given independance in 1931, and the remaining colonies in the 1950s and 60s. All Ghandi achieved was a genocidal civil war which left 900,000 dead, mostly non combatants after the British had left India.

If an American citizen went off to join Hitler's army during World War II, would there have been any question that this alone would make it legal to kill him? Why then is there an uproar about killing an American citizen who has joined terrorist organizations that...
