The "Rev. Dr." Martin Luther King Hoax A Holiday for a Cheater The holiday for a cheater is once again upon us; a time of infamy when public school children across the United States make obeisance to the secular idol of the new religion, "Rev. Dr." Martin Luther King Jr. Ronald Reagan, the conservatives' hero, signed the holiday legislation on behalf of a man he personally regarded as immoral and unworthy of the honor. "But," Reagan told a former New England governor with a monumental shrug of the shoulders, "image prevails over reality." Indeed. It has been conclusively documented that Martin Luther King Jr. cheated to obtain a doctorate, but the national "civil rights" hoax perpetrated in his name must be shielded, and hence he's still "Dr." King. King's leftist biographer, David J. Garrow, author of the standard reference work, "Bearing the Cross: Martin Luther King Jr. and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference," has stated: "Nothing can be gained by attempting to minimize or understate either the amount of King's plagiarism or the seriousness of the academic wrongdoing it represented." King's plagiarism in his doctoral dissertation at Boston University is not the only academic fraud he perpetrated. Recent scholarship has disclosed that King plagiarized much of the writing of his entire career. The fact is, King cheated in one form or another throughout his life. The first public sermon King ever gave, in 1947 at Ebenezer Baptist Church, was plagiarized from a homily by Protestant clergyman Harry Emerson Fosdick entitled, "Life is What You Make of It." The first book King ever wrote, "Stride Toward Freedom," was plagiarized according to documentation assembled by King scholars Keith D. Miller, Ira G. Zepp Jr. and David Garrow. King's essay, "The Place of Reason and Experience in Finding God," written at Crozer Theological Seminary, pirated passages from the work of theologian Edgar S. Brightman. Another of King's theses, written shortly after he entered graduate school at Boston University, "Contemporary Continental Theology," was largely stolen from a book by Walter Marshall Horton. King's Boston University dissertation, "A Comparison of the Conceptions of God in the Thinking of Paul Tillich and Henry Nelson Wieman," for which he was awarded the PhD. and upon which his title of "Dr." King is based, contains more than "fifty complete sentences" represented by King as his own writings, but which were actually lifted by King, without attribution, from Jack Boozer's doctoral dissertation, "The Place of Reason in Paul Tillich's Concept of God." The four senior editors of "The Papers of Martin Luther King, Jr.," state: "...only 49% of the sentences in the section on Tillich contain five or more words that were King's own..."! Since the record of King's cheating is irrefutable, how is it that his doctorate has not been withdrawn? On Oct. 10, 1991, a committee of researchers at Boston University admitted, "There is no question but that Dr. King plagiarized in the dissertation." However, "Despite its finding, the committee said that 'no thought should be given to the revocation of Dr. King's doctoral degree,' an action the panel said would serve no purpose." ("Boston University Panel Finds Plagiarism by Dr. King," NY Times, Oct. 11, 1991, p. 15). Do any of you really think he deserves a day of Honor?
