Dear Donnie McClurkin
I usually don’t write TWO sternly-worded letters on my blog in one week, but folks have been in need of it. Today’s latest victim is Donnie McClurkin, thee of “deliverance from being gay.” He recently preached at a COGIC service and went into a long rant about the evils of being gay, calling gays “vampires.” I first read about this on Rod 2.0’s site. Read the article to give this letter some context so you can see some of the foolishness he said. I only put a couple of his quotes below.
Dear Donnie McClurkin,
You are the pot calling the kettle “Ne-Yo.” *Sigh* To say you need more people is such an understatement. You need the population of China. You’ve spoken of your past as a gay man, and have insisted that God has delivered you from your “affliction.” Yeah whatever. But then you’ve been going out of your way to make sure people don’t think you’re still gay by giving these homophobic speeches.
How do you call yourself a child of God when you’ve pissed on some of his children’s choices in such a manner IN the Lord’s house, talmbout “God did not call young people to such perversion. Society has failed him, his church has failed him … I would be homosexual to this day if Jesus hadn’t delivered.” Jesus: “O___o You ain’t gotta lie to kick it, son! Don’t put my name in your foolishness.”
Donnie, how about this novel idea? YOU’VE FAILED YOURSELF! Clearly, you’re feeling some kind of way to go on this passionate rant, when you know you’re talking about yourself. Everyone knows you haven’t been “delivered” from being gay. You’re acting like it’s some evil spirit that catches you and you have to be exorcised. You talking real sideways about my beloved gays (I heart them). Please SAT ALL THE WAY DOWN! You know for a FACT that you still love penis and ain’t no deliverance, sermon, church service, fast orholiday bazaar that’s gonna change that. This just sounds like some inner turmoil and it sounds like you’re losing.
According to this article, you even recently admitted to still having homosexual urges, saying “I don’t eat sugar, but it doesn’t mean that I don’t want sugar.” So sugar means penis now? Gotcha. Duly noted. And yes. Yes you do. Stop playing bald-headed games and telling bald-faced lies. You’s a LAH before God, Passa, the Ursher Board, the Deacon Board AND the Qwa (choir).
Fine whatever. You’re no longer gay *rolls eyes so hard I need Visine to get my pupils right again*. But you were doing THE MOST with this sermon of yours. Hypocrisy & self-hate, thy name is Donnie McClurkin. LET THE GAYS BE GREAT!
You know what? Naw, I ain’t gon lie for you. You like penis. This is fact. So you trying to overcompensate with your homophobic rants doesn’t hide this huge gaping pink elephant in the room. All I ask is that you love yourself (and your man).
P.S. *sings* “We fall down, but we get up!” *trips Donnie* A Saint is just a sinner who got up, Donnie. But you rolling on the floor acting a fool with your anti-gay slurs. Getcho ass up off that floor!
P.P.S. Oh, your exclusive “FOOL SADDOWN” gift basket is in the mail. I even threw in a “Love yourself” candy heart. Let me know when you get it. You’re welcome.
