Gospel singer Donnie McClurkin disinvited from MLK concert amidst complaints by Gay activists

Once again the Gay lobby flexes their muscles and Democrats dutifully bow in obedience!:  I thought Gays don’t like bullying?

Washington Post reports Mayor Vincent C. Gray confirmed Monday that it was his decision to cut a gospel singer who has made controversial statements about gays from a city-sponsored concert Saturday at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial. donnie

Donnie McClurkin, who has been vocal among “ex-gay” activists who believe homosexuality is a sin that can be overcome with divine appeals, was removed as a headline performer at the “Reflections on Peace: Gandhi to King” concert held at the memorial after local gay activists lodged objections. “This was an issue involving a potential controversy at an event that was going to focus on harmony and peace, and we just didn’t think that was appropriate for this event,” Gray (D) said Monday.

A mayoral spokeswoman had said that the city’s Arts and Humanities Commission and the singer’s manager had “decided that it would be best for him to withdraw.” But McClurkin said in a video posting Saturday that he had been “asked not to attend” by Gray’s chief of staff, Christopher K. Murphy.

In an interview Monday, McClurkin called the mayor’s move a “disservice to the D.C. faith-based community” and said the suggestion that the withdrawal was mutual constituted an “insult” – one, he said, that “pales in comparison to the insult and the humiliation of being uninvited to such a significant affair.”

So according to Democrats people of faith like Donnie McClurkin aren’t allowed to believe in their convictions if it offends Gay people.But I wonder if any Muslims are attending the MLK event and if so why?They chop homosexual’s heads off in Muslim countries on the regular.Funny how I don’t hear a peep of grievance about that from the Gay mafia.
