Donnie McClurkin: Drama Queen
Say what you will about gospel singer Donnie McClurkin claiming to be an “ex-gay.” One thing for certain is that
girl he is a serious drama queen.
At the recent gospel campaign event for Barack Obama, McClurkin got all diva like with his homophobia claiming among other things “God delivered me from homosexuality.” Never mind the damage that his ridiculous outburst would likely have on Barack’s campaign, McClurkin had something to say and no man, not even the potential next president of the United States was going to keep him down.
From the NYT:
He approached the subject gingerly at first. Then, just when the concert had seemed to reach its pitch and about to end, Mr. McClurkin returned to it with a full-blown plea: “Don’t call me a bigot or anti-gay when I have suffered the same feelings,” he cried.
“God delivered me from homosexuality,” he added. He then told the audience to believe the Bible over the blogs: “God is the only way.” The crowd sang and clapped along in full support.
Donnie, the truth will come out the next time you “suffer from those feelings” and seek warmth in the arms of another man. And when it does, we will gladly and gleefully shatter the glass house of internalized homophobia that you have built for yourself. Despite your protestations of innocence, you have declared yourself to be at war with homosexuality and we gays are no longer a “gentle angry people.”
