Bishop Curry addressed the audience as "brothers and sisters".

"When love is the way, we will let justice roll down like a mighty stream and righteousness like an ever-flowing brook," he said, quoting the bible and raising his arms.

"When love is the way, poverty will become history. When love is the way, the Earth will be a sanctuary."

[Verse 1]
The power of love is a curious thing
Make a one man weep, make another man sing
Change a hawk to a little white dove
More than a feeling that's the power of love
Tougher than diamonds, rich like cream
Stronger and harder than a bad girl's dream
Make a bad one good make a wrong one right
Power of love that keeps you home at night

[Chorus]
You don't need money, don't take fame
Don't need no credit card to ride this train
It's strong and it's sudden and it's cruel sometimes
But it might just save your life
That's the power of love
That's the power of love

[Verse 2]
First time you feel it, it might make you sad
Next time you feel it it might make you mad
But you'll be glad baby when you've found
That's the power makes the world go'round

[Second Chorus]
And it don't take money, don't take fame
Don't need no credit card to ride this train
It's strong and it's sudden it can be cruel sometimes
But it might just save your life

This power of love thing is for the oppressed to move on after oppression by loving one’s enemies. The other two alternatives are to use violence on oppressors and to let evil pass unnoticed I.e accept oppression.

“His original exhortation on the power of love, then, was an explanation for his nonviolent philosophy. It also functioned as a set of instructions for African Americans trying to figure out how to respond to the racism they were forced to deal with on a daily basis.”

Thus, as the nation faced its civil rights crisis, in a world in which “history unfortunately leaves some people oppressed and some people oppressors,” there were three ways the oppressed could face their situation — and here’s where the wedding quotation comes in.

The first method was violence. That didn’t work because it “creates many more social problems than it solves,” and “as the Negro, in particular, and colored peoples all over the world struggle for freedom, if they succumb to the temptation of using violence in their struggle, unborn generations will be the recipients of a long and desolate night of bitterness.”

The second method was to give up and accept oppression because fighting is difficult. That didn’t work, King said, because “noncooperation with evil is as much a moral obligation as is cooperation with good.”

The third method was love. Not just any love, but resistance through love.”

“[There] is another way. And that is to organize mass nonviolent resistance based on the principle of love,” King said. “It seems to me that this is the only way.”

King’s conclusion was that he would “rather die” than hate. But that didn’t mean he would let evil pass unnoticed. Rather, he would send the power of love at it, in hopes that “somewhere men of the most recalcitrant bent will be
transformed.” The love of which he spoke, the love summoned by Bishop Curry at the royal wedding on Saturday, was to be used not merely to begin an individual relationship, but also to change the world through mass resistance to oppression.

Forgiveness and power of love after being oppressed are the fashionable way to go now. Didn’t Mandela and Anwar said the same thing? Forgive Najib. Forgive Mahathir. Etc
