Coretta Scott King--All Discrimination is Wrong

Coretta Scott King passed away today. She was and still is a great force in fighting racial injustice. She had recently taken up the cause on behalf of gay people as well.

I have to say, no matter what someone thinks about the rightness or wrongness of being gay (that's a WHOLE different post), I simply don't understand the desire to be able to discriminate based solely on someone's attractions. Discrimination of any kind is wrong, period. Someday I think everyone will realize that. You don't have to support gay people to simply look and say that discrimination is wrong.

Pam's House Blend has a great speech from Coretta Scott King about the GLBT fight for equality. What a sad loss to have her gone.
