MLK Jr.'s Daughter Bernice King Stands AGAINST LGBT Equality!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GayLGBT

Sometimes the apple falls VERY far away from the tree…

The daughter of famous civil rights defender Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is sticking to her stance AGAINST same-sex marriage!

Bernice King, an American Baptist minister and youngest child of Dr. King, has even gone so far as to use her father's name in the fight to end same-sex marriage rights in the U.S.!!!

According to Ms. King:

“[My father] did not take a bullet for same-sex marriage.”

In the August issue of Atlanta Magazine, Bernice King once again sounded off on her opposition to LGBT rights, saying:

"I value marriage between a man and woman. Spiritually I value that. Psychologically I value that.”

While Dr. King's own attitude toward homosexuality is all but unknown, several close to him believe he would be greatly in favor of gay rights. Including his late wife, Coretta Scott King.

Before Coretta passed away in 2006, she spoke on the issue of same-sex marriage and equality for ALL and stated that she knows for sure that her husband would have fought for LGBT rights if he had the chance. Coretta disclosed:

“I still hear people say that I should not be talking about the rights of lesbian and gay people and I should stick to the issue of racial justice. 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 brother- and sisterhood for lesbian and gay people.”

While Bernice King maintains that she disagrees with her mother, she made it clear that the issue of same-sex marriage never came between them while Coretta was alive. Bernice explained:

“When my mother was living they tried to pit us against each other. I love my mother and she loved me. They couldn’t divide true love."

You're right, Bernice. No one can divide or separate or end true love. Whether it be the love a daughter has for her mother, or a husband has for his wife, or two people, regardless of their gender, have for each other!

It saddens us to think that a woman who was raised by such a great man who cried out for freedom for EVERYONE could still have a place in her heart for hate.

But we have our certainty that Bernice King will not join her father on the right side of history. Because love will always win, no matter how hard the fight may be.

Perhaps Bernice should reexamine Dr. King's acclaimed 'I Have A Dream' speech. Because we are all created equal and all deserve the same liberties afforded to ALL Americans.

Let freedom ring!!!

    You have your opinion, she has hers. Why is it that anti gays cant state their opinion yet gays can?

  2. 2

    Homosexuality is an abomination and a disease.

  3. 3

    I dont think what she said was so horrible, just because she doesn't think like perez people should demonize her?

  4. 4

    Perez, your "love" only extends to those who share your point of view. If you truley believed in love, it wouldn't matter that people didn't agree with you.

    Bernise King is talking about her beliefs and values, she has every right to express them.

  6. texasannie says – reply to this


    agree, she has a right not to support gay marriage. And the black community is the most opposed to it to a degree. I don't say that as a put down, anyone can feel the way they do, but the black community in particular is not as supportive of the gay lifestyle. And shocker, many don't equate gay issues at all with race struggles.

    You would think an oppressed person would want no one to be oppressed. I guess she goes on the "I got mine too bad for you" train! I'm thinking really selfish.

    Mario. Let me school you in something you ignorant person. Just because someone disagrees with a lifestyle choice, does not mean they have "hate" in their heart. Get over the fact that the majority do not agree with homosexuality. Did you hear that closed minded Mario.

  10. tll84 says – reply to this


    Hate in her heart? How is it hate? She doesn't support it. I HATE when gays automatically assume someone is homophobic or hates them just because they don't support you. I have no reason to fear a gay person, I also don't agree its right. but hey, you guys do you, I have gay friends and don't mind them. I think PDA is gross.. gay or straight. get a room. like I always say… in the end of our lives.. we'll see who was right. whether or not God cares if you're gay or straight and what not.

    hey Bernice- stfu! Stop preaching against your father bitch! You don't know shit about what he would have wanted since he was killed while you were still too young to understand which way was up bitch! HE WAS ASSASINATED BY THE SAME HATEFUL ACTS THAT YOU ARE NOW PREACHING! So, yea- i hope karma comes back around and bites your big ass! I hope you get racially profiled and thrown behind bars so that you can realize that dream your father wanted for you and the rest of us. stupid orangutan looking black bitch!

    Re: texasannie – i can't wait for the day that the gay's rights are valued more than the blacks so that they can still keep crying about racism! doesn't matter that EVERY TYPE OF PERSON HAS BEEN ENSLAVED AND DENIED RIGHTS DURING THE COURSE OF HUMANITY- a black man is crying fowl so lets please console him and make him feel better. yup- the lgbt is about to show the black community how to really take your rights back!

  15. Andyourpointis says – reply to this


    Who made it a requirement that she had to like gays and lesbians? Or for anyone who doesnt like that lifestyle, to be demonized? Last time i checked it was a free country, and we are all entitl4ed to our opinions and all of a sudden, we cant dislike blacks, gays, lesbians, and gay marriage? F that, with a silver spoon. This country is turning into a weak overly sensitive gay loving pot of garbage.

    Re: BITCHY BERNICE KING – why should she stop? She is entitled to her opinion, just as much if not more than the gays. hypocrite.

  18. 18

    Perez you really love to show your asinine ways. Just because someone does not agree with homosexuals getting married does not mean they are against gays. I have gay family members and friends, I support them being together and living a normal life with no hatred. Do I think they should be allowed to get married? Of course not, because the DEFINITION of marriage is a union between a man and a WOMAN. Why are gays so hung up on marriage? Why can't we create a different union for same sex couples, with all the same benefits, just call it something different. My problem is not with gay people its in trying to change the very definition of a word to fit something that quite frankly is NOT normal. Now before anyone goes and calls me a homophobic for saying its not normal just take a breather and think about it for a second. Normal is the norm, and homosexuality is absolutely in no way shape or form normal. It's not wrong, but its not normal. I think the biggest flaw in the homosexual community is all this propaganda lets make noise and create an issue over every single thing and file it under equality. If same sex couples would just go about their lives without having to rub it in everyone's face every 5 seconds nobody would give two shits what they did.

    Re: mikal – what majority? your mom? waist size doesn't constitute a majority. The majority are in favor of our rights. The minorities, this black bitch and yourself included; still think you're apart of the majority. have a fuckin seat and watch the gay train pull out of the civil rights station bitches; we're on our way!

    Re: TruthSpeaker – you are so dumb. Wow I feel really bad for you because you've taken about 10 sips too many of the kool aid. Open a book, turn on the news, read a legitimate news website, the majority of Americans are NOT in favor of gay marriage.

  23. 23

    There are no public record of Dr. King talking about his support of hate of homosexuals. You don't know what his opinion would have been. I hate it when both sides of an argument about a subject try to say that MLK would have been on their side. You don't know! He's dead and he's been dead for quite some time, don't try to speak for him.

    Re: TheTruthIsTheTruth – how do the gays go about living their lives without fighting for rights? you must not be gay. you must not have been young and wondering why the thoughts in your head didn't match the teachings you were given. you must not have lost your gay virginity and attempted for hours to scrub the flesh off of your body afterwards because of the fear and hate that has drilled you into thinking you just did something wrong! you must not have been confronted by some random person and possibly beaten just because of the way you dress, talk or walk. what exactly is normal? beating up on kids who act differently? bad mouthing people who live differently? TAKING RIGHTS AWAY FROM SOMEONE BECAUSE OF WHOM THEY LOVE? FUCK YOU & YOUR WATERED DOWN ATTEMPT TO JUSTIFY YOUR HOMOPHOBIC RANT. fuck you royally! fucking bigot. you're a homophobe- go look in a mirror and say it to yourself because denying it is a lie.

Perez stick to celebrity gossip because you are an idiot when it comes to politics.

    Liberals always hate on everyone that doesn't believe what they believe in. Everyone has a right to their opinion. Its the liberals that constantly spew hate speech. Perez stick to celebrities.

    It always saddens me to see someone who supports inequality, and it's extra sad to see someone in her position support inequality. However, she is entitled to feel however she wants, and there is nothing we can say or do that would change that. I can only hope one day she will change her thinking.

  36. 36

    For those who say
    'she has her opinion',
    what if the 'subject' was race and she stated
    that she believe in extending marriage rights to a race ?

    I disagree with her.

    Now as a fact, everybody who lives in the US deserves a partner and all assigned benefits of having a partner. That means, heterohomorplatonic. That did not need to be rendered by marriage, but by applying for this right. This right, shold apply to platonic relationshipstpp, that have no sexual involvement either party. I am sick and tired of gay Gestapos.

    Who gives a fuck what she thinks? She's no MLK, she's his daughter who grew up without him and clearly didn't inherit his intellect or his heart. She's using her last name for notariety and she's an idiot. Who the fuck cares what you value spiritually or "psychologically" (lol). Don't marry a woman. Many others value equality and civil rights.

    This woman is a hypocrite. Years ago, black people weren't allowed to marry white people. Does she still think that people should only marry people within their own race, or has she MOVED ON from that!? If we can get past that view, WHY cant we get past the horrible view some people have on gay marriage. At some point, gay people have faced almost, if not the same amount of hate black people have suffered.

  60. Andrea says – reply to this


    I agree she's a disgrace to what her father stood for, and gave his life. However, because of that abrupt end to his life, she wasn't really raised by him. She's the youngest, so she probably barely knew him.

  61. 61

    Re: BAN THE BEIBS – Okay so I don't know 100% if he never had a public statement on homosexuality. I did read some advice he wrote in a magazine about a boy who wrote him asking what to do because the boy was homosexual. MLK told the boy that his "problem wasn't uncommon, but required careful attention." And he also told him that he was on the right road towards a solution because he already recognized his problem.

    I'm not saying he was for sure on either side because people don't know how he would have felt. The thing that annoys me is that people answer that question for him. The media and news outlets proclaim that he would have been on the side of whatever they are talking about. And I think it's wrong to assume something for someone who is long dead and can't give his opinion.

    Re: sick_girl

    I can tell you for generations if my family members would have supported gay marriage or not because of their religious views and their commitment to them. She knew her father and his religious views. Last time I checked, he was a Reverend who knew the word of God, whether or not you believe in it.

  67. Is there a way says – reply to this


    To have an open and honest discussion anywhere about this hot topic without using offensive language, threats, judgments of others and how they may feel? Is it possible at all? Because it seems hate blinds all on both sides.

  68. 68

    Re: i don't agree… – This is exactly why I don't think anyone would 100% know if MLK would have been a supporter of LGBTQ rights. We know his views on equal rights for blacks, but we don't know anything about his opinions on homosexuals. And lots of people say that he wanted equality so that must mean he would stand for this. But he was a reverend, he was a religious man, and that does have an impact on many people's opinions on gay rights. So nobody really knows for sure what he would of said, how his views might have changed or whose side he would be on. Every side of every argument likes to say that MLK would have been on their side, but they don't know. And to me, it seems disrespectful to speak for a man who is dead.

  69. 69

    I don't think she is being hateful she is simply expressing her personal opinion aren't we all entitled to that without criticism?

    I am sick of people saying just because others do not believe in same sex marriage we are haters. I am against it and I don't hate anyone. It is my responsibility as a Christian to tell you what God says and how He feels about homosexuality. what you do with that knowledge is between you and God. As far as Dr. King, if he was a true man of God, a true Christian, he would be against it. Period.

  81. 81

    She's right. MLK Jr. was working for equal rights among the races (and particularly the equal rights of darkies). He didn't do the same for homos because it wasn't as trendy and because sexual deviance shouldn't ever be a civil rights issue. As for someone "hating," I think that word best describes YOU. You are an ignorant, hate-filling, immature, intolerant bully. The good news is that everyone knows what a moron you are, and so no one takes you seriously.
    Re: rosebud99 – So a person is automatically guilty of bigotry because he or she doesn't support homos? You're one of the liberal assholes who lives her hole life as a hypocrite; you'd object loud and long to someone labeling YOUR worthless ass, but you don't hesitate to do it to others. When you get past your own hate issues, you stupid whore, maybe then you can point fingers at others, because you are definitely a hater. Dumb, hateful bitch.

    Re: Siné!!!SEMICOLON!!!ad M – I'm tired of people comparing interracial marriage to gay marriage. Apples and Oranges. Moses married Zipporah (an Ethiopian), and God had to strike Miriam — Moses' sister — with leprosy b/c of her smarty mouth comments towards their interracial union. In fact, the bible is replete with interracial marriages. God condoned some and not others, due to religious (not racial) purity. But God clearly hated sodomy, and called it an ABOMINATION. He destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah because of what's going on in this great nation now.

    I can't believe the ignorance in this comment section. Some of you people make Perez Hilton seem like a world scholar. First of all, the second you mention the word "God" in an argument about the legality of anything in the United States, you forfeit the argument right then and there. This nation was built on the separation of church and state, and this kind of method for determining the law is exactly what this nation has made sure to avoid ever since it was first established. If you want to use the Bible to determine what you can and can't do, feel free. Don't use it to determine what I can and can't do. How would you feel if Jewish people were trying to stop you from eating pork just because their religion doesn't allow it? You'd probably feel like it doesn't make any sense, wouldn't you?

    I think it's a bit far to say that she has hate in her heart for it. I think she just thinks that she's doing the right thing and following her interpretation of her religious texts. While I don't agree with it, I would go so far as to say she's being hateful.

  88. 88

    Re: Sweets36 – do you have facts to support this claim?

  91. 91

    MLK was a Baptist minister. That particular off shoot of Christianity has always been very vocal about being against homosexuality. I'm not going to say MLK was for or against but taking in his religious views and the time period in which he lived, chances are he wasn't for it. Once again, I'm not speaking for all black baptist of the south in the 60's, but looking at it in a purely historical stand point (meaning without emotion) homophobia was rampant. Yes, her father was an important historical and social figure, but just a little bit of research into to the subject will show you that some of of the loudest anti-gay voices are/were black church leaders. Am I saying all blacks are homophobic? No. But especially in the south, where the black community is focused around the church there still is a lot of anti-gay preaching and agendas. As a leader in one of those churches, of course she's going to speak out against it. People are entitled to their opinions. While I completely disagree with hers, I understand where it comes from. My only hope is that the inventiable backlash will open a few eyes and maybe change minds to a more accepting and peaceful place.

  92. 92

    Re: Siné!!!SEMICOLON!!!ad M – I agree. The whole speech against the LGTB community is the same speech there was about blacks in the past (if anybody lived it and remembers it) and the whole "her opinion, my opinion" it was exactly the same. It is THAT way that freedom of speech is used in order to push personal beliefs onto others, and it gets worst when its a movement of people with the same opinion. Truth is that up to these days, there should be no doubt that the LGTB community is completely entitled to have their civil rights, just as anybody else, because the law doesnt give a f*k where you put your genitals, the law should only care in protecting and giving the same rights for ALL citizens and those that contribute as well.
    I had a mormon mate in college years ago who used to say "black people are evil people, thats why they are black, because 'God' cursed them. When I see someone black, I cross the street, black people shouldnt study where we do." Now, that was her opinion ofc, so who cares right?.

  93. Andrani says – reply to this


    Re: sick_girl – that quote sounds a lot like what king would have said. and the fact that he saw the boys issue as a "problem" says it all. it sounds like he wanted to help the boy fix this "problem". obviously, since dr. king was a conservative baptist minister,chances are, he would have been against homosexual marriage. i really don't see what the big shocker is. the bible he believed in and preached throughout his life never condemned blacks or anyone of a certain race to slavery, abuse, and oppression. the whites simply twisted it to justify the enslavement and oppression of blacks. but it did, however, condemn homosexuals (and other deviants) to hell. point blank. that is clear and not a matter of interpretation like african slavery and oppression.

    Re: kikikiwi – I don't agree with you saying the black community doesn't support gay rights. I found that a stupid thing for you to say because as an African American I can defend my community and say a lot of us DO support gay rights because we know how it feels to not have the same equal rights as everyone else. It's more of the Christian community who doesn't support gay rights and that's me saying this as a baptist Christian as well. So don't put down the black community when you don't know nothing for a fact! I'm a huge supporter of gay rights and so does a lot of African Americans I know!

    Re: Twanasia – I'm so glad that you speak for the entire black community. NPR has reported that African Americans are less likely to support gay marriage. Even Obama has said that the community hasn't lived up to Dr. Kings message that they have turned their backs on homosexuals. I don't know the whole quote by heart (google it, if you're that interested). I'm glad you and your friends are accepting but the fact is a large majority of the African American community are against gay marriage.

    equal rights …. hmm shouldn't that mean the same thing for everyone? GAY, BLACK, ASIAN, MEXICAN, WHITE, INDIAN ETC….. I am sure her father and mother would be ashamed. He fought hard for EQUAL (means all treated the same) RIGHTS….. We do have a freedom of our own feelings but what a disgrace to her and her legacy

    Being against gay rights is the same as being against HUMAN rights. Being gay is hereditary and it's within your genetic makeup, much like your ethnicity. It wasn't too long ago when it was against the law to marry a different race. Now we can look back and say that was not only racist, but also wrong. People who hide behind "it's just my opinion b.s." are going to end up on the wrong side of history, just like the racist bigots of the past.
