Former Georgia Democratic lawmaker Alveda King, the niece of Martin Luther King Jr. spoke out against former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman on Wednesday because of her comments criticizing Vice President Mike Pence after he said he hears the voice of God.
“He can pray any way he wants to. This is America,” King told Fox News. “If he is hearing God say ‘be strong’ — Martin Luther King Jr., my uncle, said he heard the voice of Jesus say ‘stand up’ — Martin Luther at his kitchen table. Was my uncle crazy? Don’t answer that.”
Omarosa made her comments during an episode of CBS’ “Celebrity Big Brother” Monday evening. The fired White House aide told the other show contestants that Pence’s understanding of Christianity was “scary.”
“He’s extreme. I’m Christian, I love Jesus, but he thinks Jesus tells him to say things. I’m like, ‘Jesus ain’t say that,'” the ordained minister who left the Trump administration in December and is reportedly working on a book said on “Big Brother.”
King went on to say that she herself has heard the voice of God.
“I’m going out on a limb here and I’m going to tell you when a tree limb and a hot wire fell across my car, I was driving home from a storm many, many years ago. I mean, driving home through a storm and this live wire falls across my car. I really believe I heard an audible voice in my car say ‘be still and know that I am God.’ I think I hollered ‘oh Jesus’ and then I heard that,” King said.
“And you know what I did? I froze. I just sat there. It’s in the book King Truths. The first responders when they got there they said ‘ma’am, if you had touched anything on this car you would be dead,” she shared. “And so I really believe I heard a voice that said ‘be still and know that I am God.'”
