I'm just going to put this right here.
And she knows that her grandaddy would tell us to, "keep looking up." I do not know what MLK Jr. did feel about LGBT rights. Do you? (of course she said MLK Sr. in the interview so does she know what she is talking about?).
There is a debate raging in the atmosphere about whether or not Dr. King would have been in favor of a ban on same-sex marriages. Even within King's own family, there is division on the issue. King's late widow, Coretta Scott King had spoken publicly on more than one occasion about the need for justice for homosexuals, claiming that her husband would have been in favor for the rights of homosexuals to marry. Meanwhile, in opposition to her own mother, King's youngest daughter Bernice said the following at a conference in Auckland, New Zealand: "I know deep down in my sanctified soul that he did not take a bullet for same-sex unions." A few of those who "knew" King, including a friend of his from the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, Rev. Joseph Lowery, said if King were alive today, he would view marriage as a "private affair".
The reality is, King never spoke publicly about the issue of homosexuality and today, the frame of reference is quite different. – thenewblackmagazine.com
But there is also this occurrence.
(CNN)– Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was writing an advice column in 1958 for Ebony magazine when he received an unusual letter.
“I am a boy,” an anonymous writer told King. “But I feel about boys the way I ought to feel about girls. I don't want my parents to know about me. What can I do?”
In calm, pastoral tones, King told the boy that his problem wasn’t uncommon, but required “careful attention.”
“The type of feeling that you have toward boys is probably not an innate tendency, but something that has been culturally acquired,” King wrote. “You are already on the right road toward a solution, since you honestly recognize the problem and have a desire to solve it.” – cnn.com
Did that answer our question. Nope. Not fully and without him here, I do not wish speculate too much, but I'm sure as heck not going to listen to Alveda about MLK Sr. or Jr.'s beliefs.
"We need to watch what pastors and preachers across America are going to do." She also needs to see what Pastors and Preachers have been doing for many years. They have been marrying same sex couples. And the biggest thing is, are all gays looking to be married in the eyes of God or just the government. I could care less if a church blessed my union if it ever happened. I would want the blessing from my friends and family first and the government second.
So should we listen to what Alveda King has to say?
King usually invokes her uncle’s name – without mentioning that she is estranged from the rest of the family – when she appears on Fox to comment on socially sensitive issues. She did so again on the Your World show yesterday. Also not mentioned? King has had two abortions and is the single mother of six children. So spare us the lectures, please, about morality, Ms. King. – crooksandliars.com
Host Neil Cavuto seemed to go along with King, but also be fair in his openness. He never shut her down, but seemed to stay a little neutral and just let her speak.
"God is even higher than the supreme court." If you believe in God, then yes, this would be true.
Is her God your God? Who else would send us all those rainbows!
