Though it is clear that King's words resonate with our cause, I now believe that not only would King not have supported LGBTQ rights but his relevance on social issues would have continued to wane considerably had he survived.
Recently, and not surprisingly, the emotional battle over LGBT rights has focused on America's moral giant Martin Luther King, Jr. and the question: "What Would Martin Do?"
You cannot stand for freedom and at the same time deny it to others. So let us join together in the fight for equality for LGBT individuals and all people. Then perhaps we will be free.
