Acton Institute President and Co-founder Rev. Robert A. Sirico took to the airwaves in Detroit this morning with guest host Jason Vines on WJR Radio’s The Frank Beckmann Show to discuss the oft-overlooked fact that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was first and foremost a Christian pastor – the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

In many current day remembrances of King, his status as a Christian pastor seems to be downplayed or altogether ignored, instead portraying him as more of a generic “civil rights leader” – a more secularized version of the man. Sirico and Vines discuss King’s calling as a pastor, and examine what this secularized version of King says about the status of Christianity as a part of modern American culture.

The full interview is available via the audio player below.
