Gary Bauer Is Pretty Sure That Martin Luther King Jr. Would Have Opposed Gay Marriage
On yesterday's episode of "The Hagee Hotline," Matthew Hagee interviewed Religious Right leader Gary Bauer about the Supreme Court's decision to take up the issue of marriage equality in the coming term, which Bauer pre-emptively dismissed by asserting that "there is nothing in the Constitution of the United States that says that same-sex marriage is the law of the land."
Similarly, Bauer said, there is nothing in the Constitution that says that abortion should be legal or that public schools cannot open the day with mandatory prayer and Bible reading ... and Martin Luther King, Jr. would agree.
"I think what we've seen is the concept of civil rights being hijacked by all kinds of people who, I believe if Martin Luther King were alive today, he would be mortified by," Bauer said.
King, of course, opposed mandatory school prayer and supported Planned Parenthood, but that didn't stop Bauer from claiming that King would have sided with anti-gay activists in opposing marriage equality.
"I think Dr. King, being a pastor, would have certainly understood the biblical definition of marriage," he said. "It's sad to see that legacy being hijacked by folks that have a fairly radical agenda that's exactly contrary to what what Dr. King, as a Baptist minister would have believed in":
