Judge a man by his character

Martin Luther King once said he longed for the day when a man would be judged not by the color of his skin but by the content of his character. I agree that a man’s character is what he should be judged by.

That having been said, allow me to ask: What is the character of a man who will openly disrespect our national anthem, our flag, the men and women who serve in our military in harm’s way and let’s not forget those who came before them and gave their lives to preserve the freedoms we enjoy? What is the character of a man who will openly display a racist sign indicating his true feelings toward those of another color?

I would say he is lacking in character, and as is said in the Holy Scriptures, he has been weighted in the balances and found wanting.
