The Rev. Joseph Lowery, one of America’s genuine heroes, spoke today at the funeral of Coretta Scott King. With President George W. Bush standing directly behind him the civil rights veteran and peace activist told the audience that Mrs. King, an opponent of the war in Iraq, knew there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq but also beleived there were plenty of weapons of mass misdirection in America under Bush’s policies – policies which have led to increased poverty and hunger.
The Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Mrs. King would have been proud of their friend as he spoke truth to power.
I’ve heard Rev. Lowery preach before and he is a prophet.
