Martin Luther King Jr. has many things to say yet. Photo: cmlk.org The legacy of US Baptist priest and a fighter for the civil rights in the United States, Martin Luther King Jr. has still a force in a world shaken by the power of the industrialized countries, said Cuban religious leader Manuel Entenza, a man leading the First Baptist Church of the Cuban central province of Sancti Spiritus.

Entenza told Prensa Latina that the ethical dimension of Luther King is still present and multiplies in the US, in the struggle against racial discrimination.

Now, the violations of the human rights to live in a world full of peace and love are harming the principles of all the religious people in the world, said Entenza.

The members of the First Baptist Church of Sancti Spiritus gave homage to Luther King, winner of the Nobel Prize in 1964, at the Sancti Spiritus Presbiterian Church, in a city that will commemorate its 500th anniversary of its foundation by Spaniards soon.

The activity was dedicated to the 50 years of the famous speech delivered by Martin Luther King, called "I Have a Dream."

Cuban Reverend Raul Suarez, director of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Center, made reflections on the work of the US pastor and martyr for the struggle against injustice, and murdered on April 4, 1968 in Memphis, Tennensee.

Suarez highlighted the moral dimension of the US Baptist pastor, who made a call to use the dignity to face the effects of slavery, centered in racial discrimination in the US. / Source: PL.
