MLK niece renews war on ‘homosexual agenda’

Add this share

King family embarrassment Alveda King, MLK’s niece, really needs to stop talking. She’s focused on the gays. Again. And not in that Betty White sort of way. Who’s grandmother spews hate and talks like this? King is upset that the NAACP on Saturday passed a resolution supporting gay marriage, just days after President Obama publicly endorsed gay nuptials. So she cranked up her personal hate-o-meter and spit out this nugget:

“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.”
Interesting to note that King, like other Atlanta-bred gay marriage bigots including Newt Gingrich, preach on about “traditional marriage” yet have been divorced more than once themselves. This isn’t the first time that King, the former Georgia lawmaker, has gone anti-gay and claimed that her uncle would, too. There’s this bit from her King for America website:
The Christian Church has the best kept secret around. "Christians do it better!" Any sex outside of God ordained marriage is counterfeit and unfulfilling. This includes adultery, homosexuality, pornography and fornication.
King’s anti-gay history goes back further, including telling Coretta Scott King, MLK’s wife, in 1994 that her support of gay rights would bring “curses on your house and your people,” and saying in 2008 that a possible repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act would “unleash a storm of sexual immorality.” She’s also among conservative pundit Glenn Beck’s anti-gay army. And let’s not forget the gem she dropped on the steps of the Georgia Capitol during a marriage rally in 2010:
“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.”
