    King DID plagiarize large portions of his doctoral thesis, misappropriated church money on alcohol and was a known womanizer, “F___ing relieved stress” I didn’t notice any “invented” flaws. He did great things in history, he was not the be all end all though

    And you have verifiable evidence to prove that claim right?

    King didn’t plagiarize most of his speeches. Lots of churches spend money on alcohol — it’s a sacrament in the Catholic church. I think you’ve erred on the issue of prostitutes, too — King had many, many admirers.

    Sure, King had flaws. His greatness outshines those flaws. The flaws are serious enough — there’s no reason to exaggerate them, or invent new ones whole cloth.

    Besides, it’s a comparison with Glenn Beck. Do you have a clue?

    Very biased presentation, isn’t it? They didn’t show Mr. King’s flaws, such as the fact that he plagiarized most of his speeches, spent church money on alcohol, and fornicated with prostitutes despite being a married man. Oh, but including that would defeat the purpose, wouldn’t it? Of course.
