*Dr. Alveda C. King, the niece of Martin Luther King, Jr., has expressed dissatisfaction with the NAACP’s affirmation of gay marriage and rejects claims that the fight for such unions is linked to the civil rights movement, reports the Christian Post. King claims the anti-traditional marriage community wants “a world where homosexual marriage and abortion will supposedly set the captives free.”
Dr. King, who is also the Sr. Pastoral Associate and Director of African-American Outreach for Priests for Life and Gospel of Life Ministries, said in astatement that she opposes the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People’s recent endorsement of same-sex marriage.
“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,” the civil rights leader expressed.
“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,” King added.
