Former Klansman Apologizes To Rep. John Lewis
This interview deals with the phenomenally improbable apology a now elderly Klansman offered to Rep. John Lewis, for having beaten him at a civil rights rally in the 1960s. I just ran across this quote from a MLK speech which seems almost eerie in its prophetic significance when read against the background of the CNN video. If this man, so full of hatred, can change, perhaps there is hope for even the most hard-hearted advocates of abortion.
“No, we must not lose faith in our white brothers. Somehow we must believe that the most misguided among them can learn to respect the dignity and the worth of all human personality.”
