Alveda King: MLK Would Be a Modern-Day Social Conservative

Alveda King Says her Uncle Martin was a Social Conservative
Atlanta, GA – Dr. Alveda King, full-time Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., said today that advice columns written by her uncle for Ebony magazine in 1957-58 reveal a man who today would be regarded as a social conservative.

“In advising men and women on questions of personal behavior 50 years ago, Uncle Martin sounded no different than a conservative Christian preacher does now,” said Dr. King. “He was pro-life, pro-abstinence before marriage, and based his views on the unchanging Word of the Bible. Today, Planned Parenthood would condemn Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as part of the ‘religious right.’”

In advice columns written for the African American-oriented magazine, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. told a young man who had impregnated his girlfriend and refused to marry her, resulting in a “crime,” that he had made a “mistake.” He urged another reader to abstain from premarital sex, noting that such activity was contributing “to the present breakdown of the family.”

“Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a man of peace, justice, and most of all a man of God,” added Dr. King. “Were he alive today, he would be working to secure peace and justice for those in the womb and healing for a nation that is still pained by over 50 million missing lives.”


  1. Am I wrong when I say that I personally read his papers and found that he didn’t believe in the unchanging words of the Bible?

    MLK did NOT believe in the virgin birth of Jesus, His deity as the Son of God, and His resurrection. Seeing that those are the fundamental tenets of Christianity, and the fact of MLK’s adultery up until the night before he was killed, is it possible that MLK was even a Christian at all?

    In any case, I have a great deal of respect for Ms. Alveda King.

  2. I'll take Alveda's word over some indoctrinated weakminded libtard any day.
