Don't tell Bernice King or her brother Martin. But someone let an Atlanta pastor preach about gay-inclusive change during the run-up to Wednesday's MLK anniversary celebration. The audacity.
Pastor Joseph Williams from Salem Bible Church in west Atlanta uttered the three-letter word during his speech on Saturday, which you can watch above. That came during a march and rally to mark the 50th anniversary of MLK's “I Have A Dream” speech. The week-long celebration is capped on Wednesday — the actual anniversary of the speech — with remarks from President Obama.
Williams' inclusive remarks are encouraging, given Bernice King's constant defense that she's not a homophobe (when she really is) and MLK III's gay marriage bigotry. Bernice King helms Atlanta's King Center, which helped plan the anniversary celebration.
