The Rev. Keith Ratliff Sr., a civil rights leader and Baptist minister, has resigned as leader of the NAACP for Iowa and Nebraska.
Ratliff, of Des Moines, wasn't giving interviews, but he told his congregants that he resigned over the organization's support of same-sex marriage last month.
In 2011, Ratliff said the gay rights movement was an insult to the civil rights movement.
“Deviant behavior is not the same thing as being denied your right to vote,” he said.
