The following excerpts are from Christopher Doyle’s article “Gay Activists Hijack Civil Rights Event, Discriminate Against African-American Ex-Gay Donnie McClurklin” on the Voice of the Voiceless website: “It’s a sad day in America when a Grammy Award winning Gospel singer, who is African-American, gets uninvited to perform at a civil rights celebration honoring the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. because it would ‘offend’ gay activists.”

“But that’s exactly what has happened. Gay activists have successfully hijacked the civil rights movement in America, and last Saturday, held the city of Washington, D.C. and its Mayor Vincent Gray hostage unless ex-gay Donnie McClurklin was uninvited.”

“McClurkin was scheduled to headline the concert to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. But gay activists objected because of his public statements opposing homosexuality and ex-gay testimony of being molested by male relatives as a child, living a gay life, and then coming out of homosexuality. ‘I’ve been through this and have experienced God’s power to change my lifestyle,’ he wrote. ‘I am delivered and I know God can deliver others, too,’ commented McClurkin in a 2002 online testimony.”

“Because of McClurkin’s ex-gay testimony and politically-incorrect views on homosexuality, he was labeled divisive and hateful by gay activists, who urged the Mayor to eliminate him from the D.C.-government-sponsored concert at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial titled: ‘Reflections on Peace: From Gandhi to King.’ Mayor Gray asked McClurkin to withdraw from the event, saying: ‘The Arts and Humanities Commission and Donnie McClurkin’s management decided that it would be best for him to withdraw because the purpose of the event is to bring people together.’”

“But according to McClurkin’s video statement posted online Saturday, it was not a mutual decision. Rather, he was on his way to the airport to fly up to Washington, D.C. on Friday when he received a call from the Mayor’s office saying he had been “‘uninvited from a concert that (he) was supposed to headline.’” …
