The doting Atlanta grandmother who once compared gay marriage to genocide popped her head up on Tuesday to hate on the gays some more, just in time for the federal holiday commemorating her uncle, Martin Luther King, Jr.
Alveda King joined the parade of anti-gays at the State Capitol as they rallied for Kelvin Cochran, the Atlanta fire chief canned over his anti-gay book. And there was King, lecturing anyone who would listen about the perils of this “seemingly never-ending debate over sexuality.”
“The growing controversy surrounding First Amendment religious and freedom of speech rights are reaching fever pitch now in Atlanta between the mayor and the fire chief,” King said.
Then she read the First Amendment, just in case “some of us may never have heard that.”
King rallies against LGBT issues, especially gay marriage, whenever she can. She nearly imploded when President Obama backed marriage equality and the NAACP followed with its own resolution. All this from a woman who's been married three times.
“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.”
But really, the gays ones are the issues that push her hate-o-meter into overdrive.
