4. Well, take that, Cornell West

I don't think Ms. King Farris thought using MLK's Bible was a travesty.

7. My thoughts exactly.

I think MLK would have been proud that President Obama used his Bible.

17. Neither would his children who, I don't think, wouldn't have

let President Obama use it if they didn't think it was something their parents would allow or like. I personally think Reverend King would have praised every bit of the Inauguration for the historical event that it was.

19. Someone on MSNBC said that the family asked

President Obama and the chief justice to sign the bible to commemorate the occasion.

29. Thanks for the info, since I heard Cornel West's concerns

I have gone round and round in my head about the Inauguration and why so many are seeing the 2 bibles and the day in general as something postitive but West does not.

I'll add this to another reason I think King would have had lunch with Obama before he went home to be with his family.

The answer is YES!
