King says that he was intially disappointed at being labeled an extremist, but that over time, he came to gain a measure of satisfaction from it. King uses Biblical strtegies to make his point, citing that Jesus was an extremist for love, Paul an extremist for Christianity, and Amos.... an extremist for justice.
