Martin Luther King, John F. Kennedy, Jesus . . .Ken Lay

"Ken Lay was neither black nor poor as James Byrd was. But I'm angry because he was the victim of a lynching"

"This is not the first time somebody good has been falsely accused and even crucified."

"Just like Martin Luther King and John F. Kennedy, my hope is that people will view Ken Lay in a much more positive light after his death."

-- Rev. William A. Lawson, pastor emeritus of Houston's Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church
