The Southern Christian Leadership Conference, a civil rights group partly founded by Martin Luther King Jr., has threatened to fire the president of its Los Angeles chapter because he supports same-sex marriage..."I'm not going to let their inaction handcuff me from fighting for justice," Lee said. - LA TIMES
Unfortunately, a founder of SCLC was removed from office for being LGBT,
Bayard Rustin (see the terrific film on his life, Brother Outsider on LOGO or order it today at rustin.org)
Saddest thing? Even the folks over at jesus-is-sav(i)or.com know Coretta Scott King and Martin Luther King Jr. supported LGBT Civil Liberties.
So why is THE MESSAGE OF Love and Tolerance still missing from SCLC?
To deny even established leadership the opportunity to redefine injustice and intolerance indicates this group is erring on the wrong side of their OWN history, so please use your voice and speak up in favor of human rights!Submit a letter of support for Rev. Eric Lee's involvement in marriage equality visbility on the SCLC website!
http://sclclosangeles.org/contact.htmLABiCenter.org was recently invited to attend the launch of Rev. Lee's latest book at a Courage Campaign event. We are SOOOOO there!* As Bisexuals, we easily recognize when equality is ill-defined and not held to the same standard that LOVE should be; open, fair-minded and free.*yes, this bi is in cali, can't ya tell ;)
STATEMENT BY THEFAYTH ABOUT THE BISEXUAL COMMUNITY By thefayth, BiNet USA President With additional edits/support from Juba Kalamka, BiNet USA VP Bisexual communities have been notified of my intent to remove my networks, support and help from those who center white supremacy or practice trans exclusionary radical feminism. Simply put, I do not believe bisexual exclusionary communities (or beci's) to represent the bisexual community. When I emailed, messaged and tweeted at "Jayne Shea" and messaged her last Tuesday, I did so because I'd seen Seattle continuing to thrive with TERF's, or people who exclude trans people. It occurred to me, that the same group reported to BiNet USA for allowing cis only women was possibly closely associated with Jayne Shea; this has now been confirmed. And now the rest is history, Black-bisexual-intersex-trans history as I, thefayth, recently became more public in my transition from assumed cis female to known intersex trans multi-gen
