The Reverend Dr. Bill Lawson compared Lay with civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. and Jesus Christ , and said his name would eventually be cleared.

"He was taken out of the world right at the right time," he said. "History has a way of vindicating people who have been wronged."

Reverend Dr. William Lawson: "He reached out to touch many people from many backgrounds ... many economic levels ... that included minorities like me."

"Ken Lay was neither black nor poor, but I'm angry because Ken Lay was a victim of a lynching."

"The folks who don't like him have had their say. I'd like to have mine ... (Like Jesus Christ) he was crucified by a government that mistreated him."

un. believable.

what a perfect display of contemporary Republicanism. la famiglia Republicana pays their respects to a loyal money-man, and grevious corporate crimes are absolved by the Christianist belief that if you're on our side, you are incapable of wrong.

Tony Soprano's funeral would probably be much the same.

In any case, he's dead and, as all dead people, we should show some respects..
I guess that is asking too much.

I don't think I'm disrespecting him at all to point out that he was being compared to Jesus and Dr. King. I find that comparison disrespectful and offensive. If that's what you're saying nbc, of course I could be wrong about my interpretation and please correct me if I am.
