    Gospel Singer McClurkin Cut From MLK Event Over Gay Rights

    Gospel musician Donnie McClurkin claims he was uninvited to a concert in Washington, D.C. celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. and the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington due to his stance on homosexuality. McClurkin has said that God delivered him from what he reportedly called “the curse” of homosexuality after he was sexually abused as a child….

Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

    Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

    ______________________________________________________

    This article as well as several others that are making breaking news today states that Donnie Mcclurkin has been uninvited from a Civil Rights Event, a celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s speech and the March on Washington. To make matters worse, although Donnie McClurkin has been uninvited, a homosexual White man, a so-called ‘pastor’ of God has been invited. Who ordained this White homosexual man to be ‘a pastor of the living God’?

    It’s shocking to me that we are now being faced with issues that has nothing to do with the Bible and Christianity and the plight of the African Americans. Personally, I am not at all against people who choose to be homosexual or lesbian, but I do have a problem with making this an issue of law in connection with the Bible and infringing upon the human rights of believers and innocence. The fact that Donnie McClurkin was actually raped as a child is one of many stories that shows the connection that many Black homosexuals have in common and shows how evil this system is to deny him the right to speak at a Civil Rights event. Homosexualism--Legal under what premises? Mankind is not the Creator. The Created is not the Creator. No one can to this day, prove how the sun came to be, or has the answer to the first reproduction. The government has no basis to marry homosexuals or lesbians outside of the Bible and the Creator of which ordained marriage in the first place? Marriage is an institution set up by God in script. Mankind can act and lie against the Bible and God, but there will hopefully be a day of reckoning, because the Bible clearly states that homosexual and lesbian acts of sex is against God, and the Bible makes it clear that all mankind has been made aware of this, therefore, there is no excuse.

    Let’s put it this way, in times when people were facing famine and families were struggling and destitute in history, homosexual desires were not even an issue. Why? Because homosexualism is a social vice and like that kind of social behavior, and even other kinds of social behaviors that were considered to be acceptable, they were for the most part, not enjoyed in times of human struggles when people were in danger of starvation or subjected to widespread diseases and plagues. So here we are today with a Black man of whom has overcome being raped as a child and of whom has overcome the sin of homosexual tendencies to be able to testify to this cause, and he has been uninvited to a civil rights event due to conflicting with the governmental deemed ‘human rights’ in terms of marriage of Gays and Lesbians. No one outlawed Gays and lesbian relationships in the past and before president Obama’s election, but now, the issue has become a legal issue because of the issue of marriage? Why can’t these people just live together and leave the marriage part out? Ah! Because they are doing this for other deliberate reasons--that is the issue, in my opinion. ‘They’ believe in God, but hate God because they know that he does not believe in them and are acting out on this basis. It seems to me that the Adversaries of God, the anti-Christians, are mocking God under the names of Christianity, Republicanism, and etc. and are trying to convince themselves of a lie, in that all Black Christians condone this practice to the point in which we would run after the president as if he is god, and reject our God the Creator and, they do so because they hate God for his creation of the Black African presence. White Gays and Lesbians came over to this country by choice and not by force, so there is no comparison to their choice in their sexual practices and relationships as opposed to the human rights that have been and are being denied to African Americans.

    White homosexuals and lesbians can get jobs if they choose to hide their social and sexual practices, but Black African Americans cannot hide their racial makeup in order avoid being terribly discriminated against for jobs and for so many other liberties that human beings are supposed to have by the nature of being human. It is not ungodly to be created Black, African, an original Hamite, or the original Seth mankind, but God did not create homosexuals or sin. He is a God that cannot lie and cannot sin. There is a saying that God loves the sinner but hates the sin, so why don’t homosexuals admit to their choices as being a sin, instead of going against God and doing this even in the name of being pastors? Homosexuals and lesbians go against the will of God and his creation of man and woman, Adam and Eve. Everyone knows this and there is no excuse for being liars against God’s will. If people choose to sin, then they should not lie against the truth.

    For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; . . . For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse. ROMANS 1:18-20.

    I don't speak against the homosexual. I tell you that God delivered me from homosexuality."

    McClurkin's words drew raucous applause from the crowd, who had lined up around the block to get into the Township Auditorium in Columbia.
    Although a small demonstration led by the South Carolina Gay & Lesbian Pride Movement had gathered across the street from the concert venue, they were dwarfed by the crowd of black Gospel fans and Obama supporters who turned out to see the performance.
    Meanwhile, Obama staff were inside and outside the building, working the crowd and trying to register new voters.

    Nearly all of the African-American concert-goers interviewed by CNN expressed support for McClurkin. Some referenced the First Amendment, saying McClurkin had the right to say what he pleased. Others agreed with McClurkin and said that homosexuality is a choice. Several more invoked the Bible and said homosexuality is simply wrong.

    …McClurkin said during the concert that he had been introduced to Obama by Oprah Winfrey.

    What's the point in calling yourself a Christian if you don't follow God???

    The Word of God:

    Leviticus 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

    Deuteronomy 22:5 The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.

    As the servant of God stated in the book of Romans:

    Romans 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

    23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

    24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

    25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

    26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature.

    27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

    28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

    29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

    30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

    31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

    32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

    Point of information CosmicMessenger,

    You've ventured into the Christian Study Group Forum area. There's no combative discourse similar to the other non-study forums.

    Understanding your newness here, just thought I'd share this bit of info, a hint to the wise is sufficient.

    What's the point in calling yourself a Christian if you don't follow God???

    We all fall short ...

    Which is why Jesus told the adulteress to "go and sin no more".

    That's exactly what Donnie McClurkin did.

    To DISOBEY God and CONTINUE sinning while calling yourself a "Christian" is a slap in the face.

    That's why Jesus said, "sin on more" instead of saying, "it's okay to sin over and over again."

    At that time Jesus, Yashua, Eashoa was alive and not dead, this is very important. What is the Cross of atonement? And what does it cover?
