In a diatribe against Barack Obama, titled, “Obama’s election heals ‘white guilt’ at the cost of life and family,” Martin Luther King’s niece, Alveda King, said that overturning the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) “would unleash a storm of sexual immorality such as America has never seen.”
Alveda went on to say that, “Obama gives a face to abortion.”
Her commentary is profoundly disturbing and her homophobia is off the charts. I’m sure that the late Coretta Scott King, a gay rights supporter, would not be proud of such anti-gay rhetoric.
Coretta once said that, “Homophobia is like racism and anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry in that it seeks to dehumanize a large group of people, to deny their humanity, their dignity and personhood.”
I agree with Coretta.
