Missing the Point?
Dr. Sheila Koger of Bethlehem Baptist Church felt the need to go off-topic during a prayer service prior to Monday's events in Columbia, S.C.:
During the NAACP-sponsored service before a march to the State House in King’s honor, Dr. Sheila Koger of Columbia’s Bethlehem Baptist Church said the Bible doesn’t condone homosexuality and that transgender people confuse children.
“God said in the beginning he created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve,” Koger said. “If you don’t got a womb, then you’re a man.”
Koger said in an interview later that she raised the issue because she opposes gay rights and thinks King’s holiday should not be used to support the issue.
“Martin Luther King was not talking about gay rights,” she said. “He was talking about rights to have liberty. Don’t forget, he was a gospel preacher.”
