Misusing Martin’s Memory?

Black commentator Star Parker believes homosexuals have hijacked the civil rights movement.

martin_luther_king_jrHer most recent example is the purging of Grammy Award winner Donnie McClurkin from performing at a concert commemorating the 50th anniversary of the 1963 civil rights March on Washington and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech.

McClurkin, a black pastor and gospel music superstar, was disinvited to perform at the dedication as result of pressure from homosexual activists, because McClurkin dares to say he himself was saved from the homosexual lifestyle, through God’s mercy.

Parker points out that the civil rights movement was a Christian movement. Dr. King was a Christian pastor, inspired by the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and led an organization called the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. The new memorial to Dr. King on the national mall contains no reference to his Christianity, at all!

Parker says it is time for the Bible, rather than political answers, to define black life and our religious liberties.
