Martin Luther King Jr.
On Wednesday, Houston Mayor Annise Parker called on places in Houston to join her later in the month for a bell-ringing ceremony commemorating MLK milestones.
As the country will honor the life, legacy and mission of peace Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. embarked upon, Houston will commemorate Dr. King with a parade as well as with a “Day of Service” on Monday.
Rev. William Owens takes great issue with Obama’s linkage of Dr. King’s civil rights movement of the past to the current gay rights movement regarding same-sex marriage. Owens says that King embraced traditional religion, and he strongly suggests that King would not want his civil rights’ mission altered to include same-sex marriage.
