In our current struggles how many times have you been told that we need to be "reasonable" or "polite" and not offend people? Or that you are being an "extremist" because you confront people (and public officials) with the truth? That you need to go through "proper channels" and not be disagreeable? Or that your church has decided it's best to avoid difficult social issues? Sadly, this isn't new.
To have MassResistance quoting Martin Luther King Jr. is very offensive. Then I thought about MLK's dream. While his quest to wipe out injustice isn't even remotely similar to this hate group's activities, Dr. King would have hoped that by them quoting him, some of his insight into the world of injustice and quest for freedom might somehow trickle into MassResistance's follower's thoughts and deeds.
Dr. King would have never advocated publishing lies on the internet about people or harassing public or private individuals by publishing their home telephone numbers. MassResistance neglects to mention that Bayard Rustin, one of Dr. King's closest advisers and one of the men who organized the 1963 March on Washington was GAY and Dr. King was proud to have him at his side.
Coretta Scott King continued Dr. King's advocacy of non-violent protest and speaking out on injustice everywhere:
I still hear people say that I should not be talking about the rights of lesbian and gay people. ... 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 brotherhood and sisterhood for lesbian and gay people."
Anyone can quote Dr. King but that doesn't change the meaning of his words.
