Argues family long line of black leaders did not back homosxual agenda.
Alveda C. King, heir to a long line of NAACP leaders, says the black civil rights organization is taking a wrong turn with its recent decision to endorse 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." said King as founder of King For America.
The NAACP announced Saturday that its board of directors passed a resolution endorsing marriage “equality.”
“Civil marriage is a civil right and a matter of civil law,” said NAACP CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous in a prepared statement. “The NAACP’s support for marriage equality is deeply rooted in the 14th Amendment of the United States Constitution and equal protection of all people.”
The next paragraph of the NAACP resolution states: “The NAACP Constitution affirmatively states our objective to ensure the ‘political, educational, social and economic equality’ of all people. Therefore, the NAACP has opposed and will continue to oppose any national, state, local policy or legislative initiative that seeks to codify discrimination or hatred into the law or to remove the constitutional rights of LGBT citizens. We support marriage quality consistent with equal protection under the law provided under the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution. Further, we strongly affirm the religious freedoms of all people as protected by the First Amendment.”
King said that 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.”
Her statement was one of many from leaders of black organizations who reacted in opposition to the NAACP’s statement.
Day Gardner, founder of the National Black Prolife Union, joined her.
