FBI tapes analyzed by the biographer of Martin Luther King Jr. have led to several salacious claims levied against the civil rights icon.
“Secret FBI tapes that accuse Martin Luther King Jr of having extramarital affairs with ’40 to 45 women’ and even claim he ‘looked on and laughed’ as a pastor friend raped a parishioner exist, an author has claimed,” according to Daily Mail.
Biographer David Garrow, a Pulitzer Prize winning author and King’s biographer, analyzed the tapes. He also claimed that in one of the tapes, King can be heard saying that he is the “International Association for the Advancement of Pussy-Eaters”
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has long kept their secret recordings under lock and key, where they still remain. It is a well-known historical fact that then-FBI director J. Edgar Hoover ordered surveillance of King under the pretext that he might be a member of the Communist Party. The tapes will remain in a vault in the National Archives, and are slated for release in 2027.
According to Garrow, the tapes could be the impetus for a “painful historical reckoning.”
The report claimed that King participated in numerous acts of debauchery, including discussing with a pastor friend which parishioners with whom he would hypothetically engage in sexual acts, witnessing a rape by a fellow pastor in a Washington, D.C. while laughing along with the alleged rapist, as well as participating in orgies. It also claims that King engaged in sexual acts with at least one prostitute, and that he might have had a lovechild with a woman in Los Angeles.
King’s wife, Coretta Scott, often complained that King spent nearly no time at home.
“It poses so fundamental a challenge to his historical stature as to require the most complete and extensive historical review possible,” Garrow said.

Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.
— SBC Executive Committee (@SBCExecComm) September 17, 2020
But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
