'Anti-gay religious right plagiarist now exploiting Martin Luther King, Jr' and other Wednesday midday news briefs

Land: Fighting Abortion & Gay Marriage is Like MLK Fighting for Racial Justice - Fascinating that the same folks who accuse gays of exploiting the civil rights movement are doing it themselves:

There is a HUGE irony with Richard Land exploiting the civil rights movement. Earlier this year, he faced an ugly controversy for accusing President Obama and other African-American leaders of using the Trayvon Martin case to "gin up votes" for Obama. And the controversy gets funnier. It turns out that Land plagiarized his comments from someone else's piece. Ultimately, he was reprimanded by the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission and lost his weekly radio show.

In other news:
