I have respect for Rev. Olmstead. He supported the attack on Saddam in Iraq. He had his eyes open to the evil of Saddam. His congregation was shocked, but his letter to them let eveyone know that he was a man of principle. He knew there was a time to fight.

What we will not commemorate is Dr. King's acquiescence in the enslavement of millions more than Lincoln freed.
