Christian University Uses MLK Day to Promote Transgender Rights

Martin Luther King, Jr., famous people, miscellany

Martin Luther King denied the deity of Christ, the virgin birth, the resurrection of Christ, and the inerrancy of Scripture. On top of that, Luther was a sex-trafficking bisexual and whoremonger. Usually, when Christians – like the ELRC and The Gospel Coalition – promote this lost man it’s because of his contributions to racial equality. One university – affiliated with the United Methodist Church – will use MLK Day this year to promote Luther’s contributions to sexual immorality.

The llinois Wesleyan University will celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. day with a gender identity “teach-in” on January 21. The university is affiliated with the United Methodist Church and it will have two primary speakers, Charlene Carruthers – a “black, queer feminist community organizer” – and an LGBT activist named Dave Bentlin, who is president of Prairie Pride Coalition. 

The event will end with a “session on gender identity and human rights” led by the IWU Pride Alliance. The theme of the event, according to a university news release, is “gender and social justice.” In other words, it sounds like the agenda of The Gospel Coalition, the ERLC, and 9Marx. Frankly, it sounds like the agenda of at least three speakers at this year’s Shepherd’s Conference.

According to Campus Reform…

Carruthers, who received IWU’s Outstanding Young Alumna Award in 2017, authored the book Unapologetic: A Black, Queer, and Feminist Mandate for Radical Movements, which was released in August. 

“Drawing on Black intellectual and grassroots organizing traditions, including the Haitian Revolution, the U.S. civil rights movement, and LGBTQ rights and feminist movements, Unapologetic challenges all of us engaged in the social justice struggle to make the movement for Black liberation more radical, more queer, and more feminist,” a description of the book on Carruthers’ website reads.

Last year, in 2018, Florida State University used MLK Day as a reason to invite a member of the Communist Party to address the students and promote “civil rights.”
