I come to this magnificent house of worship tonight
because my conscience leaves me no other choice...
A true revolution of values will lay hand on the world order
and say of war, 'This way of settling differences is not just.'
This business of burning human beings with napalm,
of filling our nation's homes with orphans and widows,
of injecting poisonous drugs of hate
into the veins of peoples normally humane,
of sending men home from dark and bloody
battlefields physically handicapped
and psychologically deranged, cannot be reconciled
with wisdom, justice, and love
