Martin Luther King Jr. day should be adopted as a religious holiday by every christian on Earth.

Think about it. MLK is an amazing context for the christian life. Contemplate the distance between actions in your comfort zone and actions within his comfort zone. Get a really good feel for exactly how badass he was. Don't forget the dobermans in Selma.

Now contemplate the distance between actions in his comfort zone and actions in Jesus of Nazareth's. Contemplate how far MLK thought he was from the man whose example he followed.

Now contemplate how unnerved and uncomfortable most republicans would be at being tricked into this excercize.

That's my challenge for you. Go out and make republicans feel unworthy in the context of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The world will be a better place for it.
