Racism Must Die So That America Can Thrive.

Monday, August 14th, 2017

Friends, there is a reason why I’m Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn here in the 21st Century. As we see from the most recent racially motivated massacre in Virginia, racism is still alive and raising hell. Think about it. Racism is sin. Hatred is sin. Yet for whatever reason, the pot of domestic terrorism continues to be stirred under the guise of promoting “racial supremacy.” The big lie is that we are separate races, when in fact the spiritual, scientific and biological fact is that we are one blood; one human race [Acts 17:26] Racism and hatred are deadly. This is why I so often quote my Uncle MLK:

“We must learn to live together as brothers [and sisters], or perish together as fools. I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”

We should be grateful that POTUS is calling for a cease fire on the violence. My King Family Legacy foundations have taught me that nonviolent conflict reconciliation is the key to ending these “race wars.”

As one of God’s microphones, I’m often required to say what people don’t want to hear. Abortion is racism, in that abortion takes away the civil rights and lives of our weakest and most vulnerable members of the human race, unborn babies.

Here’s an encapsulation of The King Family Legacy’s approach to nonviolent conflict resolution which is introduced here briefly:

SIX STEPS AND PRINCIPLES FOR NONVIOLENT SOCIAL CHANGE – A sequential journey to victory:
Principle 1: Nonviolence is not passive, but requires courage.
Principle 2: Nonviolence seeks reconciliation, not defeat of an adversary.
Principle 3: Nonviolent action is directed at eliminating evil, not destroying an evildoer.
Principle 4: A willingness to accept suffering for the cause, if necessary, but never to inflict it.
Principle 5: A rejection of hatred, animosity or violence of the spirit, as well as refusal to commit physical violence.
Principle 6: Faith that justice will prevail.

Six Steps of nonviolent conflict resolution:

(1.) Prayerfully gather facts.

(2.) Prayerfully educate adversaries and the public about the facts of the dispute.

(3.) Prayerfully commit yourself to live and manifest a nonviolent attitude and actions.

(4.) Prayerfully mediate and negotiate with adversaries in a spirit of goodwill to correct injustice.

(5.) Prayerfully apply nonviolent direct action, such as prayer vigils, marches, boycotts, mass demonstrations, picketing, sit-ins etc., to help persuade or compel adversary to work toward dispute-resolution.

(6.) Prayerfully anticipate reconciliation among adversaries in a win-win outcome in establishing a sense of community which should now be achievable.

Considering the times, I am grateful to be a part of a biological family as well as a spiritual family who embrace these truths. Won’t you join us?

Alveda King, Naomi King: De-sanctification of Human Life at Core of America’s Crime Crisis

Wednesday, September 7th, 2016

Mrs. Naomi King, wife of Rev. A.D. King, sister-in-law of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and mother of Evangelist Alveda King, Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn with Priests for Life, was recently vandalized at her senior citizens’ residence in Atlanta, GA. Along with Mrs. Naomi King’s, cars of other residents were vandalized, with windows bashed in, and possessions rifled in the car. On October 9, 2015 Mrs. King experienced a similar attack where a teenager approached her car, demanded her keys, and punched her in the face repeatedly when she refused to get out of the car or give up the vehicle.

Mrs. King is a voice for civil rights and justice. She loves Jesus Christ. Today, she and her daughter Alveda are advocates for the sanctity of human life from conception until natural death. They agree that a disregard for the sanctity of human life is at the core of America’s violent crime crisis.

Quoting Saint Mother Teresa, Alveda explains: “What is taking place in America is a war against the child. And if we accept that the mother can kill her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?”

In 1951 Mrs. Naomi was faced with an unexpected pregnancy. She was offered a “choice” by the then “Birth Control League” that would become “Planned Parenthood.” The offer was for a “procedure for a mysterious female ailment,” a D&C which would have eliminated everything in Naomi’s womb.

Naomi went to her future father-in-law, Martin Luther King, Sr., who prophetically described the baby he’d seen in a dream three years prior. Naomi didn’t abort that baby; Alveda. As a result, Evangelist Alveda King is a voice for life today.

Paraphrasing words from her brother-in-law, Mrs. Naomi says: “When we do not value the human personality then our society is in trouble.” She also urges in an open letter: “Our God, who is loving and merciful gave you life and gifts. Are you thankful?”

Naomi’s love of God, grace and beauty, earned for her the title “The Butterfly Queen. “I’m so glad I chose life for my angel daughter Alveda,” she said.

Evangelist Alveda loves her mother and is grateful for her life. She prays for a “cease fire” in America’s abortions, crime and violence; and concludes urging everyone: “Pray for America and vote pro-life.

Amidst France Terror; Rumors of a “Day of Rage,” Evangelist Alveda King Calls for Acts of Love, Repentance and Kindness; Unity of “One Blood.”

Friday, July 15th, 2016

Unite as One Blood2

Atlanta, GA. Today, in France, across America and around the world, we are mourning, grieving, yet trusting in God. In Nice, France, 84 fallen by terrorist attacks. In America there will be memorial services for men who lost their lives in an American tragedy last week.

There are rumors of more rage filled protests, and there are rumblings of prayer and praise abounding. We mourn with the families of the deceased and implore Americans and people of faith in God around the world to unite as the Acts 17:26 “one blood” in repentance, love, unity and kindness to avert more violence and bloodshed; for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness from the womb to the tomb.

Are the Babies in the Empty Chair? An Open Letter to President Obama

Tuesday, January 12th, 2016

160112 blog imageDear President Obama, my prayers are with you as I write this letter today, anticipating your State of the Union address.

Sir, you recently tweeted: “If there’s even one thing we can do, if there’s just one life we can save—we’ve got an obligation to try.” Your appeal seemed to be directed at gun control. Yet, the one life chord is vibrating on a frequency that embraces not just victims of gun violence, but even reaching the innocent lives in the womb.

Many people often try to marginalize the sanctity of life voice. Yet, I would appeal to you to consider that death by forceps or bullets is death all the same:

““I have sinned by betraying innocent blood.” They said, “What is that to us? See to it yourself.”” – Matthew 27:4 ESV

Sir, we are trying to “see to it,” to see an end to senseless violence in every corridor.

Dear President Obama, in the Bible there have been great kings and rulers. Some served God, some did not. In many cases some of these rulers came to know and serve God because of prayerful people within their courts and cabinets. I’m sure you have such voices around you.

In your recent gun control speech you spoke of Zaevion, a high school student, and his heroism as he dove on top of three girls to shield them from the bullets. And he was shot in the head. And the girls were spared. He gave his life to save theirs. You also rightly quoted John 15:16, “Greater love hath no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends.” To lay down one’s life for a friend takes an extremely selfless act, something we don’t hear about too often.

You said, “Every single year, more than 30,000 Americans have their lives cut short by guns — 30,000. Suicides. Domestic violence. Gang shootouts. Accidents. Hundreds of thousands of Americans have lost brothers and sisters, or buried their own children. Many have had to learn to live with a disability, or learned to live without the love of their life.”

Violence is defined in Merriam-Webster as “the use of physical force so to harm someone, to damage property, etc.”

Violence can take many forms. Gun violence is one of those forms. Knife violence is another. Fist violence another; and word violence too. Bomb violence is another. And abortion violence is yet another.

As you spoke and began to tear up, I could see the compassion you have for those who are senselessly killed by guns. I believe that many Americans feel the same way you do, not only for gun violence but for any type of violence. Americans mourned the lives lost to the Boston bombers. We mourned those killed at the twin towers on 9/11.

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), in 2013 there were a total of 41,149 deaths by suicide of which 21,175 were by guns. That means that 19,974 suicides occurred by other means such as suffocation, poisoning, etc. Additionally, in 2011 there were 836,000 emergency department visits for self-inflicted injuries. Although not broken down by types of injuries, I would venture to say that many of them were not due to gun shots.

Although we do need certain legislation regarding gun sales and safety the focus needs to be more on violence control and not excessive gun control.

Violence is due to hatred, or malice people may have towards others for whatever reason. It could be due to skin color, or someone having something that someone else has, or someone not believing what we believe. Whatever the reason the solution is the same: LOVE.

We must change the dialogue from “we’re against something” to “we’re for something.” In this case we must be for love – love of our fellow human being, love of life, love of self!

The Bible advises and teaches us that we should never rail against rulers and leaders in authority; rather we are to pray for our leaders, which I do. There are many words you have spoken over the years of your presidency; some which ring with compassion.

As you may know, I am a pro-life activist. I am concerned about all human lives. I write to you today because, like you and so many other Americans, I am concerned over the growing violence in America. But I am also concerned over the millions of lives lost to the violence of abortion.

Mother Teresa once said, “I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child, a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself.”

I’m writing today to appeal to your compassion for those lost to violent acts and I ask you to consider that what our world needs is not just gun control but violence control. We need to turn to LOVE for the answer.

I do not want to politicize the issue of guns or abortion and that’s why I’m inviting you to step out of the political arena and invite you to step into the arena of principles and moral values. The arena where we can change the world through LOVE and PEACE!

Voices

You gave life voice
To sing sweet psalms.

Life sings of degradation.

You gave life ears to hear
your music

Life listens to pagan drums.

Life has many voices Lord.
We need to only listen.

Of all the voices in my life
Yours is sweetest.

Open letter to President Obama

Monday, January 11th, 2016

Dear President Obama, my prayers are with you as I write this letter today. I’m praying that the heart of this message breaks through all political filters to that secret place that even Presidents go in times of need.

Overcoming the Onslaught of Violence in America and the World

Friday, December 4th, 2015

151204 blog image

“Let not your heart faint, and be not fearful at the report heard in the land, when a report comes in one year and afterward a report in another year, and violence is in the land, and ruler is against ruler.” – Jeremiah 51:46 ESV

Wednesday’s mass shooting in San Bernardino, CA has taken over the news cycle for the last two days and rightly so as it is a horrific tragedy. On the same day there was a lesser reported mass shooting in Savannah, GA. While perhaps there were not enough people killed to make Savannah a ‘big’ story, as the Washington Post noted, “The local news barely acknowledged the murder: One local television station covered it in three paragraphs.

The same article also points out that mass shootings have ‘become normal,’ 355 of them in 2015.

In a seemingly unrelated chain of events, last week’s shooting at a Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs brought on a firestorm of blame at pro-lifers.

Rev. Frank Pavone writes: “Vicki Cowart, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, wrote, ‘We share the concerns of many Americans that extremists are creating a poisonous environment that feeds domestic terrorism in this country.’”

“Vicki Saporta, President and CEO of the National Abortion Federation (NAF), was more explicit in her statement to blame the pro-life movement for Friday’s incident, stating, ‘Although anti-abortion groups may condemn this type of violence when it happens, the way that they target and demonize providers contributes to a culture where some feel it is justifiable to murder doctors.’”

Let’s keep in mind that these women deliberately omit to admit that millions of babies have been legally violently dismembered or chemically killed in America by abortion. And many mothers have been maimed or killed in the process.

There’s more. Lest we forget, the “Black Lives Matter” cries remain as part of the bigger picture. Yes, Black lives matter, all black lives matter [including aborted babies, black on black crime victims, incarcerated youths, etc.]. Indeed all lives matter because John 3:16 says God loves the whole world and that means everybody. We, as one human race (Acts 17:26), are in this thing together whether we like it or not.

What we are missing here is the not so subtle connection to what on the surface seems to be random violent outbreaks in the atmosphere. Yet as Rev. Pavone points out, the problems with the Colorado Springs shooting is not the pro-lifers referring to abortion as murder but rather the abortion industry’s utter lack of respect for life and choosing its solution to solving someone’s problem by killing their child.

Although the Colorado Springs shooting was abortion related, we should consider that there is a common denominator; an utter lack of respect for life. Whether there are various underlying causes for the lack of disregard of the rights of others, consequent actions lead to outcomes such as these mass shootings, high abortion rates, high levels of incarceration, suicide and many other threats to the human family.

Terrorism, be it in the womb, from distant shores, behind the domestic walls of our homes, or wherever it occurs, terrorism by any other name is still the same.

Killing has been a part of humanity since Cain killed Abel. Throughout history humans have been killing for greed, convenience, emotional pain, and the like in order to acquire what others have; whether it be land, money, power, or [and we can fill in the blanks here].

Human life has long been devalued to the point that life has often become disposable as long as we can’t see the danger to our own. Herein lies the Catch 22: we disregard others to save ourselves – sadly not realizing that we are universally connected to our human family.

With the passage of time America has joined the rest of the world in rubber stamping the killing of our babies in the womb, as well as the sick, the elderly and in alarmingly increasing numbers, the poor.

With this acceptance of devaluation of humanity, the consciences of men, women and children have been numbed. The answer to one’s problem becomes the dehumanization and elimination of those who would interfere with what someone wants.

Is there any wonder that mass killings are occurring on a regular, almost daily, basis?

Let’s connect some dots.

Have an unplanned pregnancy? Illness? Getting too old? Other problems? Eliminate your problems with abortion or euthanasia.

Killing is fast becoming the choice many people are “choosing” in order to fix their problems. Killing of another or of self both devalue and destroy life.

We must wake up and recognize that the taking of any life, born, unborn, sick, handicapped, elderly, those of faith outside of ours — is wrong.

“The people who know their God shall [must] stand firm and take action.” Daniel 11:32 ESV

Contrary to what others are saying, that “God will not fix this,” it should be obvious that only God can change hearts and fix broken lives. Pray for America, and the world.

Statement From Fr. Frank Regarding Shooting in Colorado Springs

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015

PriestsForLife

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: December 2, 2015

Contact: Leslie Palma
347-286-7277

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today:

The senseless and universally denounced shootings that took place in Colorado Springs on Friday have brought a number of inquiries to me and other pro-life leaders regarding whether we intend to soften our language or modify our actions regarding Planned Parenthood and abortion generally.

In short, the answer is “No.” In fact, we will intensify both our language and our protests.

We neither participate in nor condone violence. Our messages and our protests did not start because of irresponsible and deranged perpetrators of violence, nor will they change or cease because of such people.

Planned Parenthood — and the abortion industry generally — are dismembering and decapitating little children on a daily basis, and for a profit. We describe abortion that way because that is how medical textbooks describe it. “A long curved Mayo scissors may be necessary to decapitate and dismember the fetus,” Dr. Warren Hern explains in Abortion Practice, p. 154. The US Supreme Court, moreover, has described abortion procedures in detail. “The doctor grips a fetal part with the forceps and pulls it back through the cervix… The friction causes the fetus to tear apart. For example, a leg might be ripped off the fetus as it is pulled through the cervix and out of the woman. The process of evacuating the fetus piece by piece continues until it has been completely removed.” (US Supreme Court, Gonzales vs. Carhart, April 18, 2007, describing the D&E procedure).

If these things were not true, there would be no justification to say them; but since they are true, there is no justification for keeping silent.

As I explained in my column yesterday on FoxNews.com, our language reveals these horrors and opposes them, but the language of the abortion industry not only admits these realities but justifies them. That’s the kind of language that does damage to the moral framework of our society.

If people hear these things and are comfortable with them, they can act and vote accordingly. If, on the other hand, they think these practices should stop, they can work in legal and peaceful ways with us and the entire the pro-life movement to educate the public and change public policy.

In the coming months, we will intensify our multi-pronged Expose Abortion effort (www.ExposeAbortion.com), using the words of abortionists themselves, the photos and videos of abortion, and the corruption of the abortion industry to awaken the public to this violence. The strategies we will employ, and the principles on which they rest, are explained at length in my new book, Abolishing Abortion, released this summer by Thomas Nelson publishers (www.AbolishingAbortion.com).

Likewise, on Thursday, January 21, starting at 9am, we will hold a national prayer rally and protest against Planned Parenthood at its newest Washington DC location (1225 4th St. NE). Many of our fellow citizens will already be in Washington for the annual March for Life the following day, and we urge them to join us for Thursday’s protest, and for a National Prayer Service on Friday morning at 8:30am at Constitution Hall (1776 D St., NW (18th and D St).

Planned Parenthood and the entire abortion industry are committing crimes against humanity. We thank the Republican members of the Select Panel on Infant Lives for the work that they are committed to do to bring to light the facts that support this assertion, and we at Priests for Life will work hard to support their work and inform the public about it. As for the Democratic members of the panel, we will oppose their efforts to distort, dilute and deflect the meaning and purpose of the panel, and will steadfastly oppose their efforts to keep America’s holocaust going strong.

Priests for Life is the nation’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit www.priestsforlife.org.

A Call for Peace On The Million Man Anniversary

Friday, October 16th, 2015

151016 blog image

It’s been 20 years since the Million Man March called Black men to Washington, DC for a “day of atonement.” The eyes of the world were on what for many was hoped to be the next great March on Washington, picking up on the dream MLK unwrapped in 1963.

So, last week, nearly 20 years later, Minister Louis Farrakhan, Pastor Jeremiah Wright and others again drew crowds to Washington, D.C., under the banner “justice or else.”

Or else what? And even better, we should all ask: “What’s next?

In an open letter to Pope Francis, I recently asked these questions:

Can a Gentile love a Jew? Can a Muslim love a Christian? Is a baby in the womb a person? What is the meaning of love? Is sin a dirty word? Do we have to be filthy rich to be happy? Can the Lion really lie down with the Lamb? The point is, how do we find peace?

In two decades, many have forgotten the goal of reconciliation and given over to implied threats. Not to make light of the frustrations beleaguering the African American community, our nation and indeed the world, we must continue to teach and live out nonviolent solutions to our problems.

For example, just last week, my mother suffered a violent carjacking attack while attempting entry into her gated community. In her own words, she “was not scared or angry” at her young attacker,” she was “frustrated by the misguided effort” to take her property using physical force. In an open letter, she encouraged him to seek Jesus and nonviolence in order to fulfill his destiny.

The very next day, my Pastor and mentor of 28 years, Allen McNair, founder of Believers’ Bible Christian Church passed away. During his lifetime, he taught and demonstrated that the best way to encourage, assist and transform “Black America,” our communities, our cities, the nation and the world is with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

My father, Rev. A.D. King; my grandfather, Rev. Martin Luther King, Sr.; and my uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., stood at the forefront of the cause of basic human rights. In spite of horrible violence perpetrated against them and other African Americans, they held fast to the truth that “hate is too great a burden to bear.” They fought on a platform of love, the one power that can overcome hate.

One of the attendees in the crowd 20 years ago was Barack Obama. He became President.

Today, Dr. Ben Carson is s leading candidates to replace the President. What was unthinkable in terms of race relations for the early decades of my life is now not only acceptable, but the new norm.

The lasting impact of the King Family Legacy is that we seek the way to lasting progress and change through love, not hate. Uncle M. L. once wrote: “Bomb our homes and threaten our children, and as difficult as it is, we will still love you.”

Having survived the bombing of my family home in Birmingham, believe me, I understand the difficulty of what he said. Having lived through decades of enormous advances in harmony between blacks, whites, and others in this country, I understand the correctness of what he said.

His timeless appeal still works with profound and amazing success.

Love builds. Hate destroys.

What is also obvious, however, is that of late we have seen instances of terrible injustices committed against African American men by police officers. We have also seen for years the ongoing injustice of black-on-black crime, an occurrence of which my own mother experienced a few days ago. Our response to this violence, though, should not be to take action that destroys our neighborhoods or tears down our social structures.

Our response should always be to pursue positive change. We need not be passive – the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. was anything but passive!

To be effective and have a lasting impact, our actions must be rooted in love and respect for all. To lash out may be immediately satisfying, but vengeance is not only futile, it’s contagious.

When I heard a speaker at this year’s “justice or else” event chanting, “Down, down, USA!” it saddened me terribly. Not only was this speaker destructive, she was just plain wrong.

As one who sincerely prays for the peace of Jerusalem, which would ultimately lead to reconciliation among the natural and spiritual sons of Abraham, I am concerned about the lack of peaceful negotiations among the factions.

Our nation faces many trials. As the Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life, I’m particularly grieved by our trampling of the civil rights of the unborn. But the United States has proven over and over again that, having been founded on righteous principles, we can ultimately only achieve justice by lifting up those principles, not tearing them down.

As Americans, members of the human family of Acts17:26, let us begin to meet our challenges by recognizing that each one of us, regardless of our station in life or our stage of life, is entitled to respect. Let each one of us, regardless of our color or ethnicity or even religious understanding, show concern for each other’s wellbeing.

Most of all let us love one another. That was my uncle’s dream, our family’s dream. It’s still rooted in the American Dream today.

leslie@priestsforlife.org

“We must learn to live together as brothers [and sisters] or perish as fools.” Dr. MLK, Jr.

Staten Island, NY – In route for a prayer vigil and march in SELMA, during an exclusive early morning report, Alveda King, FOX NEWS Contributor, KING RULES author and Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life tells FOX that “all eyes are now on Charleston. Violence is still looming and lurking.

“This isn’t time for violent riots or race baiting. It’s time for prayer and leadership. Officials at all levels, mayor, police, governor, National Guard, congress, president need to pray and enforce peace and justice.

“By the way, evil knows no color. My grandmother Alberta King was shot down and killed by a crazed black man while playing the organ in Ebenezer Church in Atlanta in 1974. My mother Naomi King, Daddy AD’s wife was in the ambulance with BigMama when she died. We didn’t riot, we prayed. Decisive prayerful and positive action is needed now! Granddaddy King said pray and forgive.

“Pray, don’t riot. People are being slaughtered in the womb, in their beds, and, for God’s sake, while worshipping in church. This isn’t just about race. It’s time for the human race of Acts 17:26 to PRAY FOR AMERICA!”

Alveda King to Baltimore Mayor: My dear Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake

Monday, April 27th, 2015

 

Your invitation to “give space for those who want to destroy” is unbelievable. This interpretation of rights to free speech is dangerous Ma’am.

In 1963, my father Rev. AD King, after the firebombing of our home in Birmingham, Alabama, urged hostile protestors to abandon violence and turn to God in prayer instead. Thank God they listened to him, and the even greater voice of his brother, my Uncle MLK, during those turbulent days.

Now, you are inviting violence to your city? Who, Ma’am, will incur the moral and economic costs of picking up the pieces? The innocent taxpayers?

We at www.restorethedream2015.com are very concerned. Ma’am, people are not entitled to pillage and destroy. That is just plain wrong. Our affiliates on the ground in Baltimore are willing to help quell the violent tide. And make no mistake about it; something must be done to save our cities.

How did we get here? Where do we go now? Think about this: Baltimore 1965 vs. Baltimore 2015, compare and contrast:

1. Money spent on public schools then vs. now.
2. Amount spent on social welfare payments then vs. now.
3. The size of Government Bureaucracy then vs. now.
4. The number of black elected officials then vs. now.
5. Number of black children born in Baltimore to an intact nuclear family.
6. Number of Black lives MIA by abortion and incarceration.

If you look at all six questions/comparisons what you will see is the only statistics to have decreased (1965 to 2015) is the number of black children born in intact nuclear families.

Something is wrong. We must stop the killing and advance the healing now!
