MADISON, Ind. (BP)--It is official: theological literacy in America has reached a new low. This was established Jan. 17 when new Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley created a firestorm of controversy through his comments at a Martin Luther King Day speech in the Montgomery church where King once preached. Speaking to a diverse gathering at the Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church, Bentley dared to appeal for the conversion of his hearers. In today's politically correct climate, that was taken as a scandalous act.
