Martin Luther King, in my opinion, was in fact a good and decent man. He was completely against slavery and discrimination. Naturally, I understand times were much different during his day, but when I think about it, he had very good points, and a very positive way of going about them.
He was a God fearing man who made his 95 thesis which explains why the church is corrupt. Even though people may believe him to be racist towards the Jewish, he showed content for them and all types of people. He wanted all people to go down the right path.
He stood up to the people who thought it was ok to be racist he was in the right people that had slaves to work for them just for them being a different color is wrong I shouldn't have to change m,y colour so he was a guy who was fighting for something right
In my opinion I think martin luther was a good person because he wrote the 95 these which to me clearly states that he was a against the catholic church doing many sins and committing fraud and conning loads of people an tricking them as well....!!!! Thxxx from franky b
Martin Luther stood up to corruption in the church and introduced the reality that sins could not be cleansed by monetary donations to the priest or church. This was a brave thing for him to do. He may not have been accepting all around of others, namely the Jews, however this is due to his strong convictions about Christ. Martin Luther stood up to church hierarchy and stood for the people, the Christians, who were being taken advantage of by their church, and led to the protestant reformation. Martin Luther was a great man.
To be fair, I don't want to say anything about a person I don't know personally, but I don't know. Something in my mind associates his ideas with the Ku Klux Klan. I mean maybe it's not true, but he could have a been a racist himself. All I know is many of these Lutheran countries engaged in violent imperialism (England under the Georgian kings [first two], Denmark, Sweden).
