Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Today is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Since MLK, Jr. was from Atlanta, it is a widely celebrated day here. However, today, there were some people that protested the ceremonies held at Ebenezer Baptist Church. Rick Warren, author of "The Purpose Driven Life" and the man who will deliver the invocation at tomorrow inauguration spoke at the former church home of Dr. King.
Protestors were there because Pastor Warren helped rally support to outlaw same sex marriages. The protestors were there because Rev. King believed in equal rights and they are saying that Mr. Warren there since he is not the voice of equality.
