Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King Jr., is unhappy with the NAACP for pushing gay marriage.
“How can we show compassion for people who want to legitimize sin? If we love them, shouldn’t we try not to hurt their feelings by pointing out that things like abortion and homosexuality are against the Word of God? No matter how many new Bible translations that people come up with, God’s Word isn’t going to change."
“Right now the anti-procreative 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. To the contrary, it is the Word of God on these and all human issues that sets people free. As Christians, we must have the compassion of Jesus Christ and tell the truth and shame the devil. We must not allow false compassion to force truth to take a seat on the back of the bus.”
She is not alone. Day Gardner of the National Black Prolife Union chimed in:
“Many black people are realizing just how far off the mark the NAACP is with regard to the real issues and the most important problems facing the black community,” Gardner said. “The NAACP organization was founded by blacks who had an understanding and strong faith in God. They were people – pastors and congregations – who knew that the Bible, which is God’s final word, was indeed very clear on the immorality and wages of homosexuality and abortion.”
