Remarks Delivered by Archbishop Iakovos on the CBS Nationwide Radio Program "The World Tonight" Concerning President Johnson

 

"The commitment that our President made before our nation last night renews the faith of our people in equality, democracy and human dignity. The orderly demonstration in Selma yesterday guarantees the peaceful solution to the problem that has done so much damage to the image of the United States here and abroad.

''If demonstrations in the future are guided by the spirit of our President’s address, I am more than confident that peace and order, obedience to the law and to the Divine, will definitely prevail at the end for the benefit of all and a historic legacy for the whole world and the generations to come.”
