The conservative niece of Martin Luther King, Alveda King, was on Fox News Friday to suggest that the King family would not have accepted the Supreme Court ruling that guarantees the right of same sex marriage because “There is a higher authority” than the U.S. Supreme Court.

King usually invokes her uncle’s name – without mentioning that she is estranged from the rest of the family – when she appears on Fox to comment on socially sensitive issues. She did so again on the Your World show yesterday.

KING: I believe if my granddaddy, Dr. Martin Luther King, Sr., were here today, he would say, “Keep looking up.” …God is even higher than the Supreme Court. So the verdict is not totally in. We’re still praying and waiting to hear from God and that’s my position.

Alveda’s uncle is the revered Martin Luther King, Jr. Not mentioned was that he would likely have supported gay rights.

Host Neil Cavuto seemed to go along. “Major religions, Alveda, recognize only the union between a man and a woman as married,” he said. “The Supreme Court has, obviously, decided that this includes same sex. So that would seem to pit God in that case against the Supreme Court.

“That is the position right now,” King agreed, “and yet you have to see what pastors and preachers across America are going to do. So it’s going to be a long hot summer and an interesting year ahead.”

Cavuto asked King, who is a pastor, “Would God be OK?” with same sex marriage.

”Love and sex are two entirely different things, and so who is anyone to argue about who can love who? But sex, procreation, that kind of thing, God has some specific plans for that. …There are some guidelines for sexuality. ...People have not been taught, not properly educated, it’s not to be done in a hateful manner. So there’s a lot of teaching to be done.”

Cavuto also asked, “would God welcome” same sex couples adopting. “Those kids want someone to love them, right? Does it really matter whether it’s two Mommies, two Daddies, a Mommy and Daddy? “ He challenged.

“We know all human beings don’t require sex,” King replied, in something of a non-sequitor. “Love and sex are not the same thing, and there’s a lot of teaching that has to go on about that. … Are we going to obey God or are we going to obey man? …We’re going to have to obey God."

Also not mentioned? King has had two abortions and is the single mother of six children. So spare us the lectures, please, about morality, Ms. King.
