The Following excerpt is from Nicola Menzie’s article “Pastor Donnie McClurkin ‘Uninvited’ From MLK Memorial Concert Over ‘Ex-Gay’ Testimony?” on “Donnie McClurkin, award-winning and internationally celebrated gospel recording artist and Christian minister, has claimed that he was uninvited from a MLK Memorial concert on Saturday in Washington, D.C. because Mayor Vincent C. Gray heeded the demands of gay rights activists who wanted him dropped from the event marking the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. McClurkin has previously shared that he believes God delivered him from the ‘sin of homosexuality’ and that people with unwanted same-sex attractions can change.”

“McClurkin, pastor of Perfecting Faith Church in Freeport, N.J., stated in a Socialcam video: ‘The mayor of D.C. uninvited me from a concert that I was supposed to headline today in the Washington (National) Mall commemorating…this 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Movement. I was asked not to attend although I’m considered the headliner of the concert, and advertisements had been circulated and the churches as well as the community are prepared to come out by the tens of thousands into the Washington Mall (area).’” …

… “Controversy over McClurkin’s presence at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial concert stemmed from the Christian minister’s remarks about sexuality, including his own.”

“McClurkin has previously shared his story about childhood molestation and struggling with same-sex attractions in books like Eternal Victim, Eternal Victor and the DVD ‘The Donnie McClurkin Story: From Darkness to Light.’

“‘I’ve been through this and have experienced God’s power to change my lifestyle. I am delivered and I know God can deliver others, too,’ McClurkin, 53, has stated about overcoming homosexuality.” …
