Anti-gay Michigan preacher: 'Abraham Lincoln, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr and our forefathers apparently died in vain'

by Jeremy Hooper

Because gay people are on the road toward greater equality, two great voices of equality died in vain. Thus goes the latest pontification from the wrong side of history, weighing on today's historic ruling out of Michigan:

Moreover, he has said to the almost 70 percent of Black citizens who voted in favor of marriage protection that our voting rights are no longer protected. Abraham Lincoln, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr and our forefathers apparently died in vain

—Rev. Dr. Roland A. Caldwell, Pastor of Burnette Inspirational Ministry, Detroit, Michigan

Mmm hmm. Because we all know that *more* discrimination is fully in line with what these men wanted.
