That's great information but how does it negate my argument that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would probably not have supported a form of marriage that violates Gods will?<quoted text>
His widow sure did.
"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" - Coretta Scott King
The only thing that you managed to prove, at least to me, is that Coretta Scott King decided to abandon her Christian roots and adopt a moral relativist position, which Dr. Martin Luther King "could never accept."
Let's remember that Martin Luther King, Jr. was a devout American Baptist minister. According to the official website of the Southern Baptist Convention, which is the world's largest Baptist denomination with 16 million members as of 2012: "We affirm God's plan for marriage and sexual intimacy one man, and one woman, for life. Homosexuality is not a valid alternative lifestyle. The Bible condemns it as sin. It is not, however, unforgivable sin. The same redemption available to all sinners is available to homosexuals. They, too, may become new creations in Christ." Source: < http://www.sbc.net/aboutus/pssexuality.asp> ; ;
The fact that Dr. King was a Baptist minister, and American Baptists do not officially support same-sex marriage, provides compelling reason to believe this American hero would not have supported non-traditional marriage.
Furthermore in 2009, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, which was founded and lead by Dr. King from 1957 to 1968, threatened to fire the former president of its Los Angeles division, Rev. Eric P. Lee, for advocating against California Proposition 8. Source:Steinhauer, New York Times July 10, 2009 < http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/11/us/11gay.ht ... ;
That action reveals SCLCs stance on same-sex marriage.
Personally, I don't think Coretta King could have persuaded Dr. King to go against God's will because he was far too wise, morally convicted, and honorable.
