Martin Luther King, Jr: Extremists for Love or Hatred

These are extreme times, and the question isn’t whether or not we will be extremists, but what kind of extremists we will be. Will you be extremists for love or for hatred?

-Martin Luter King, Jr.

  1. Amen. That’s a great quote. So often the term “extremist” is looked at as a negative attribute. Here is how the word extreme is defined on m-w.com

    1 a : existing in a very high degree b : going to great or exaggerated lengths : RADICAL c : exceeding the ordinary, usual, or expected

    As Dr. King noted in the quote above, why would we not want to take it to the furthest extent when it comes to loving God and others?
