He was in the original civil rights movement, and now the founding president of the Coalition of African American Pastors is starting a new initiative to defend traditional marriage.

It’s called RISE, and according to the group’s website it’s a new movement for faith, family, and justice.

Bill Owens, founder of the CAAP, said marriage should be between a man and a woman, and he said he disagrees with LGBT individuals who call their campaigns the new civil rights movement. He said the two issues are not the same.

“Now the homosexual community is saying that it’s the same thing; it is not the same thing,” he said. “They didn’t die…. They weren’t hung from trees. They didn’t work low paying jobs. They didn’t suffer what we’ve suffered.”
