Group wants Jamal Bryant out as keynote speaker of Florida MLK breakfast

A group is seeking to have the Rev. Jamal H. Bryant, a Northwest Baltimore pastor and activist, uninvited as keynote speaker of a Martin Luther King Day breakfast in Florida after learning he has preached that homosexuality is "a sin."

Bryant became nationally known after appearing beside the family of Trayvon Martin, the Florida teenager who was shot to death by a neighborhood watch captain in 2012. He subsequently took part in protests in Ferguson, Mo., and Baltimore, after the deaths of Michael Brown and Freddie Gray, respectively.
