Alveda King, a niece of Martin Luther King, Jr., spoke at a rally for the antigay National Organization for Marriage and said that same-sex marriage would lead to “extinction” and called it “genocide.”

King, who heads King for America, addressed a rally Saturday in Atlanta that was outnumbered by counter-protesters, according to the Georgia Voice.

”King also spoke of her family’s commitment to strong marriages, including her uncle and ‘his lovely wife,’” reported the Voice. “She did not mention that Coretta Scott King, Martin Luther King Jr.’s wife, spoke out in favor of gay marriage on several occasions and was a speaker at Atlanta’s Gay Pride festival in 1996.”
