Last week King talked about the lesson read in his church. Yesterday in all Lutheran and Episcopal churches, the Gospel Lesson came from Matthew 25:14-15, 19-29. The parable of the talents includes in part, "For to all those who have, more will be given . . . but from those who have nothing, even what they have will be taken away."
Does that mean that we should not discriminate, prejudge, and/or assume "priviledged class guilt" just because an individual is above the median household income? Although a politically incorrect thought, I've added "income level" at the bottom of the Open Letter that I sent last Friday.
