Wrong II

"We are not wrong, we are not wrong in what we are doing. If we are wrong, the Supreme Court of this nation is wrong. If we are wrong, the Constitution of the United States is wrong. And if we are wrong, God Almighty is wrong. If we are wrong, Jesus of Nazareth was merely a utopian dreamer that never came down to Earth. If we are wrong, justice is a lie, love has no meaning. And we are determined here in Montgomery to work and fight until 'justice runs down like water, and righteousness like a mighty stream.'"
--Martin Luther King, Jr.
 Address to the first Montgomery Improvement Association (MIA) Mass Meeting, at Holt Street Baptist Church (December 5, 1955).  "Justice runs down like water, and righteousness like a mighty stream" is a quotation of Amos 5:24 in the Bible.
