Man is a Child of God, Made in His Image

quoted in Presbyterians Pro-life News; Winter 2002; pg 5

Keywords: martin luther king, image of God, oppression

"Man is more than a tiny vagary of whirling electrons or a wisp of smoke from a limitless smouldering. Man is a child of God, made in his image, and therefore must be respected as such...And when we truly believe in the sacredness of human personality, we won't exploit people, we won't trample over people with the iron feet of oppression, we won't kill anybody."

--Martin Luther King, Jr. in a 1967 Christmas sermon.
