Video: Donnie McClurkin: God Delivered Me From Homosexuality

October 30, 2007 at 11:37 am 15 comments

“Ex-gay” gospel singer Donnie McClurkin can try as he might to justify his anti-gay rants, by using the weak ass “hate the sin, love the sinner” rhetoric, but he is in fact a homo-hater who has spoken out repeatedly against LGBT people. At the Barack Obama campaign event in South Carolina McClurkin, who also emceed the show, said to loud cheers from the audience:

I don’t speak at the homosexuals. I tell you God delivered me from homosexuality.

As if homosexuality was something that we needed to be delivered from, when what we really need to be delivered from is the rampant homophobia that people like McClurkin spread like a virus through African-American communities.

In his speech he talked about hypocrisy and especially hypocrisy in the church, when he is amongst the biggest of hypocrites after having had sex with men while preaching that homosexuality is a sin when in public.

What happened on that stage was inexcusable. He did a great disservice to the Obama campaign, he further marginalized Black LGBT people and he drove a further wedge between Black evangelicals and LGBT Americans. I don’t blame Obama for this, but he has to make sure that his campaign never makes this kind of mistake ever again.

You can see the full rant here.

    i feel that everybody is trying to make this whole 2008 election a racial thing trying to pick out the differences from obama and other contestants. obama knows what race he is and so do we. we need to figure out what is best for our country and who would represent us the best. instead what color a person skin is.

    The complementary structure of the male and female anatomy is obviously designed for the normal husband-wife relationships. Clearly, design in human biology supports heterosexuality and contradicts homosexuality.

    This is obsurd to hear that so many homosexuals are upset at a man who is obviously dealing with his demons. He does not desire to be homosexual, just like the Apostle Paul said, ” the things that I should do I don’t and the things that I do I shouldn’t” He knows that homsexuality is wrong and he is battling with the flesh.

    Also it’s sad to see that the homosexual community have become so agressive and hateful. Flat out it’s wrong, point blank, end of discussion. in Roman (Bible) God said that he’d give people over to a reprobate mind or a wrongfully thinking mind so that they can justify what they believe to be right. Christians are not here to bash or to hate or to make any one person feel inferior to the other. We believe that Christ is the only way the only truth and the only light of this world…His ways are pure and holy and just.

    Gay preachers, pastors, etc. are just a further deception to the real truth that is Christ Jesus…God rained on Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis) and then told the homosexual community that they would not inherit the kingdom of God (Romans)…that covers the old and the new testiment. Again it’s flat out wrong. The Bible teaches us that though we have the option to do whatever we want, doesn’t mean that it is good for us. We all make our own choices and God urges us to choose life…turning away from every immoral and sinful thing and live a righteous life.

    So I don’t live in Donnie McClurkin’s home and I don’t sleep in his bed, but it is not my place nor anyone else’s place to judge him or to be angry with him for striving to live a righteous life and desiring to be free from the immoral sin of homosexuality. And however he chooses to express that, is his choice.

    God is love.

    Look I am 17 years old and I have been dealing with the same situation since I was 11 years old. Donnie McClurkin is kind of my inspiration because he is believing that God will and has already delivered him from this immoral sin and I believe God will bless him for that. And just seeing him do that makes me want to be even more like the man that God has created me to be, and that is a handsome, HETEROSEXUAL, intelligent, young man who is going to make his wife happy physically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually, and we are going to have lots of children. That is what he is doing, he is calling those things that are not, into reality and that is how you get delivered, you can speak it into existence. I pray that this world will know what demonic spirit this is and then stop doing this, because just like Sodom and Gomorrah the people want to stay in this lifestyle will be destroyed.

    I can’t understand all the anger. Homosexual is a way of life. It is distinctly different from the heterosexual way of life. Not everyone wants the homosexual life – I have heard that it can be sorrowful and painful. Also, McClurkin was introduced to homosexuality against his will at the ages of 8 and 13. One can understand that he is against it, since it was forced on him. If he had come to willingly, as an adult – maybe he would have a different attitude towards the group. Homosexuals rarely celebrate the same joys as heterosexuals do. They seem to place their sexuality above everything and that excludes the joys that Christianity teaches use to pursue. Is it wrong to reject this lifestyle and say that you have been saved from a destiny that you consider unpleasant? Who among the gay community would wish homosexuality on their dearest friends?

    the truth is that according to the standards of the bible homosexuality is worng…stated earlier. in romans 7 paul talks about a man that is battling with sin becuase he is captive by satan, born in sin shaped in inquity because of adams sin in the garden..this sin the man is battling could be homosexuality but then in romans 8 the man recieves the holyspirit.this is the what jesus christ died on the cross for , to send us back the holyspirit that gives us power over sin and set us free from the captivity we were born in.(it wasn’t our fault but what we did in sin was the lust of our father satan) now i serve a god that created the universe and everything in it trust me he can set a man free from homosexuality or any other sin.this country was build on god and through him it has prospered, but the futher it departs from him the worse the conditions of america get…look at all the other nations that have exalted other gods above the one and only true and living god for example africa. we need to stop making so many provisions for satan..(homoseuality, abortions..etc) ii mean who doesn’t reconigze that homosexuality is unnatural i mean what if i wanted to marry a dog tomorrow is that ok? and i not being unsympathetic i have been in the shoes of homosexual thiugh the other way because i am a female but i have witnessed the power and love of god all i am asking is that you seek a deliver as i did deep down you know you don’t want to be in the state that you are in and i am not here to bash you or look down on you but i am telling you is that there is hope…if i told you you could live free from the desire of wanting your same sex, that god can completely change how you feel and what you feel that you can live in peace and that i know its not your fault would you take the oppertunity to change..you would be a fool not to. so try god the real god not what america has made him to be but the god that created the heavens and the earth and everything in between even you, the god that loves you and is mindful of you and is just waiting for you to chose him…with all the love in my heart i will be praying for you and know what my purpose was in this..just to show you the love of god and to save your soul.

    I love you Donnie, your love for God and your strength amidst all these stone-throwings about your past. I can imagine you laughing it off and continuing with your work for the Lord. Keep up the good work and don’t mind them… After all, everybody is entitled to an opinion, let them express theirs. Its okay.

    this is to everyone of you thats have issues, with Pastor McClurkin for know reason, Question, are you jealous? because he is healed from his affliction, my Grandmother told me this once; and i quote, if you are pointing one finger at someone look how many are being pointed back at you. stop condeming and pray for the Man of God, may be one day, just by chance, you might need him to say a prayer for you.don’t forget to forgive, ask the Lord to forgive you for the wrong you have done, and repent of your sins, and be save in JESUS name!
