Commonly known as a major pillar of the civil rights movement and an anti-violence Baptist reverend, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. essentially condemns ambivalent people to hell for not taking a side on what is presumed to be racial conflict. This quote is actually a loose translation from a line from Dante's "Inferno." This statement illustrates the steadfast connection between the black church and political mobilization.
