Martin Luther King Day Mass

My childhood parish St. Augustine is having its annual MLK Day Mass tommorow. Although I'm thankful for all MLK did--- people forget how horrible daily life was for black people when my parents were young; but I'm not happy about this at all. MLK was not Catholic and not a saint. He was about as faithful to his wife as JFK was to his, which is to say, not at all. A Mass in his honor seems um.... silly.
