As you can see, the AmTaliban has its splash of color up there for the big shindig, all prominently featured on the web site. Sadly, one of them is the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Alveda C. King. She and the civil rights leader's daughter Bernice are homo-bigots (Coretta Scott King, his widow is a strong supporter of gay rights).
But it gets better, according to Pam ….
Alveda has been quoted as saying “Bernice says herself that she knows deep within that her father did not march and did not take a bullet for same-sex marriage.”
From my the volley of emails I received today, queers and assorted nonlethal Christians are heading to Philly to protest. As for me, I'm going to spend that day attending a local church that is gay-affirming. Then I'll probably take a few shots against Rick Santorum's marriage by spending quality time with my partner.
Pam's blog is good stuff. Nice to see well deserved attention focusing on a lesbian of color.
