Gay Rights: What Would MLK Do?

The Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the civil rights group founded by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., is trying to fire Reverend Eric Lee, the president of its Los Angeles Chapter, because he supports gay marriage and dissed Prop 8. While it’s pretty ironic that the SCLC would give him a pink slip over gay rights, that’s sadly, not the only thing funny about a leading civil rights group turning their back on a marginalized community. Reverend Lee was a key figure in the marches and rallies against the California bill. But sadly, 70 percent of black voters did not share his sentiments at the polls. While the SCLC refuses to comment on the matter, perhaps, as the WOW Report pointed out, this quote from a 2003 speech by MLK’s widow, Coretta Scott King, can come to his defense now.

“I still hear people say that I should not be talking about the rights of lesbian and gay people. … But I hasten to remind them that Martin Luther King Jr. said, ‘Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.’ I appeal to everyone who believes in Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream, to make room at the table of brotherhood and sisterhood for lesbian and gay people.”
