Fox News shacks up with anti-gay Atlanta troll

Add this share

Not content with one Atlanta-based hater of all things gay, Fox News put a second under contract. Now, MLK family bully Alveda King can spout her “gay marriage equals genocide” venom on national television. Sigh.

Fox announced that it signed the 64-year-old MLK niece as a regular contributor last week. King often rallies against gay marriage, reasoning that her own three marriages somehow deliver wisdom that she should share publicly. 

Like this:

“It is statistically proven that the strongest institution that guarantees procreation and continuity of the generations is marriage between one man and one woman. I don’t know about you, but I’m not ready to be extinct and none of us wants to be. We don’t want genocide, we don’t want to destroy the sacred institution of marriage.”

And this:

“Neither my great-grandfather, an NAACP founder, my grandfather Dr. Martin Luther King Sr., an NAACP leader, my father Rev. A. D. Williams King, nor my uncle Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. embraced the homosexual agenda that the current NAACP is attempting to label as a civil rights agenda,” says King, founder of King for America and Pastoral Associate for Priests for Life.

“In the 21st century, the anti-traditional marriage community is in league with the anti-life community, and together with the NAACP and other sympathizers, they are seeking a world where homosexual marriage and abortion will supposedly set the captives free.”

And this:

In January, she told the AJC: “I fully support God’s biblical plan for marriage, which does not include divorce, does not include adultery, does not include fornication, does not include same-sex marriage and polygamy. Liberty does not always mean doing what feels good to people.”

And this to supporters:

“Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong. And do everything in love,” King said on Tuesday. “These conflicts over religious freedoms are not limited to issues of sexuality.”

Fox News Chair Roger Ailes couldn't be more pleased to add King to his stable of haters.

Via the AJC:

“Alveda has brilliantly carried the legacy of the King family to the next generation and has been a source of inspiration for many Americans. Her passion and mission for social change will be a valuable contribution to our network.”

And why not? The network already offers Erick Erickson, the WSB radio host and Red State editor who hasn't met an LGBT he doesn't hate and often uses his political punditry to carry on about the terrorists in gay Atlanta.

King couldn't be happier.
