Why Does Barack Obama Associate With Black Bigots?

Another great article by John Ridley

 This one concerns Obama’s support by a black minister who is openly anti-gay.  Oh Liberals, where forth arth thou rage? Among the great advice my father gave me as a child — besides never buy tires at full price — was that the only thing lower than a car dealer is a used car dealer, and car dealers are scum of the earth.

To paraphrase — the only thing worse than a bigot is a black bigot…

And to take it a step further would be to include a black bigot who drapes himself in the cloth and hates in the name of the Lord.

And, yet, there is Donnie McClurkin who’s planning an SRO three day stand with the brother who would be president, Barack Obama.

A lot of folks are calling McClurkin anti gay or a gay hater or a straight out homophobe ’cause he says that he’s in a “war” against homosexuality, and homosexuality is a choice and gays can be fixed.

A lot like, I’m sure, Ann Coulter would tell you Jews can be perfected — and while we’re on the subject of the absurd, the Patriots can be beaten because their passing offense really can be stopped.

Anyway…

With Obama coming under fire for including a hate monger in his Compassion and Unity tour, McClurkin shot back at all the anti-hata haters and said that his comments were taken out of context.

A lot like, I’m sure, Bill O’Reilly will tell you his comments are often taken out of context.

McClurkin feeling that gays can be perfected does not come from nowhere. According to McClurkin, as a child he was raped by a male family member, which so affected him, he “became” a gay man for some 20 years before religion helped “straighten” him. I want to stress very, very emphatically that a young person being molested by ANYONE is beyond humorless. It is sick and depraved.

But as far as McClurkin becoming gay as a result, then later having ministry cure him, well…

A lot like, I’m sure, Ted Haggard would tell you a little church can cure you of the need to have your gay masseuse sell you a little meth.

According to a piece in the Chicago Trib, McClurkin now says he is straight and that his ministry is open to those who say they no longer want to live as a gay person. What he doesn’t do, he says, is crusade against homosexuality.

And for the record, my house is open to all people who no longer want to be redheads. If you’re a redhead, then get the F out! But I’m certainly not crusading against redheads.

And this is the guy Obama’s gonna share a stage with?

In an official statement Obama has said that he “strongly disagrees” with Reverend McClurkin’s views, yet he still intends to share a stage with him.

But, Barack, you can’t say you strongly disagree with the head of the Klan, then invite him on stage just ’cause he knows his way around a Johnny Cash song (no disrespect to the late Johnny Cash or his family, just the first singer who popped into my head). http://www.huffingtonpost.com/john-ridley/donnie-mcclurkin-and-perf_b_69772.html

  2. BE VERY CAREFUL HOW YOU COME AGAINST A TRUE MAN OF GOD,DONNIE MCCLURKIN IS THE MAN OF GOD. WHY IS IT THAT PEOPLE LIKE YOU WANT TO ALWAYS COME AGAINST CHRISTAINTY? HOW DARE YOU TAKE PASTOR MCCLURKINS STORY AND MOCK HIM FOR HIS BELIEFS,GOD IS AGOD THAT IS AGAINST ALL SEXUALINMORALALITY, HOMOSEXUALITY,LESBIANISM,FORNICATION,AND ADULTRY.PASTOR MCCLURKIN IS NOT PREACHING AGAINST PEOPLE BUT AGAINST THE ACT THAT GOD SAID IS SIN! YOU COME AGAINST A MAN OF GOD FOR HIS BELIEFS OF THE BIBLE, BUT OUR COUNTRY LET INMORAL DEEDS SUCH AS HOMOSEXUALALITY BECOME A LAW ,AND THEY SAY THIS COUNTRY WAS BUILT ON GOD, IN GOD WE TRUST WHAT A MOCKRY OF GOD AND HIS SON.

  3. BARACK ABAMA IS A POLITICIAN HE HAS TO GO ALONG WITH WHAT SOME PEOPLE SAY, BUT PASTOR MCCLURKIN ONLY LISTENS TO GOD AND AS A CHRISTIAN HE HAS TO OBEY THE LAWS OF THE LAND AS LONG AS IT DOES”NT GO AGAINST GODS LAWS. YOU SEE GODS LAWS IS THE HIGHEST LAWS AND BARACK OBAMA OR ANY ONE ELSE FOR THAT MATTER CAN NOT AND WILL NOT STOP GODS LAWS. WHO EVER FIGHT AGAINST THE MEN AND WOMEN OF GOD IS FIGHTING AGAINST GOD.

  4. I suppose Political Night Train now knows why Obama is friends with Donnie McClurkin.

  5. is this not the type of religeous self rightous zealots that perportrate murder and property distruction on innocent people?

  6. I have posted how Obama can distance himself from the leaders of this church. Let’s see if he get attacked by the Clinton’s for his church’s racist teachings, since the Clinton’s have now been accused of being racists.

  7. If this were Hillary Clinton sharing the stage with David Duke, she would never get away with it; she’d be spurned and taken apart – to say the lease, can we talk about a matter of “judgement” and a gross DOUBLE STANDARD!

  8. Everyone who believes in civil rights for all Americans needs to picket Barrack Obama’s inaugural swearing in ceremony in Washington and let him know we do not approve of his choice of picking Rick Warren to take part in his swearing in ceremony.
    Obama has shown his true colors at last. Now I wished I had voted for McCain as even McCain I don’t believe would stoop so low as to do such a terrible act/
