Barack Obama: As Evil As Ja Rule?

Oct 23rd, 2007 // 7 Comments

barrybar.jpgGay rights advocates have put Barry on blast for bringing gospel singer Donnie McClurkin to a South Carolina fundraiser, thanks to McClurkin’s off-message thoughts on the homosexual scourge.

“I don’t believe that [homosexuality] is the intention of God,” McClurkin said Monday in a telephone interview. “Sexuality, everything is a matter of choice.”

McClurkin said he does not believe in discriminating against homosexuals. “What people do in their bedrooms and who they are as human beings are two different things,” he said.

Oh, okay. Got it.

Yes, it’s more wonky logic from the moderate God squad. (Gotta cover yr ass if you’re gonna be gettin’ a check from the Dems.) But McClurkin’s specious views are almost tame compared to pop’s most famous out-and-proud homosexual-haters. It’s not like Obama invited Bounty Killer to play a campaign rally during gay pride week.

Group To Obama: Drop Singer From Tour

  1. brainchild

    it’s also worth noting that McClurkin is an admitted “ex-gay”

    “ex-gays” are like ex-smokers or ex-drinkers. always getting on your case for enjoying what they gave up on.

    Dry gay…

    Since Obama didn’t withdraw from this musical journey, he’s letting us know that he values the christian vote over the gay vote. Nice.

    What if one of the singers was an admitted Asian hater, openly anti-Muslim, or a misogynist? Would Obama’s people still say he was in a pickle?

    Oh, if straight people would only realize that hate is hate is hate.

    You know, as a gay, I don’t really care whether people think being gay is a choice or not. Even if homosexuality was simply a matter of choice, I should still be allowed to exercise that choice, simply because my choices in this regard don’t involve anyone who doesn’t want to be involved. So, his opinion of where my desires come from is immaterial and frankly a little presumptuous.

    And this McClurkin dude was repeatedly raped by male family members as a child. If that had happened to me, I might be pretty conflicted about my homosexuality, too.

    So, on the list of things to get upset about, this is pretty low down. Cause if he only dislikes us for what we do in the bedroom, he hates all you straights having sex before marriage, too. That’s what you should be getting upset about.

    ALSO (me), as a millitant gay, Obama did make a really clear statement today that i like:

    “I have clearly stated my belief that gays and lesbians are our brothers and sisters and should be provided the respect, dignity, and rights of all other citizens. I have consistently spoken directly to African-American religious leaders about the need to overcome the homophobia that persists in some parts of our community so that we can confront issues like HIV/AIDS and broaden the reach of equal rights in this country. I strongly believe that African Americans and the LGBT community must stand together in the fight for equal rights. And so I strongly disagree with Reverend McClurkin’s views and will continue to fight for these rights as President of the United States to ensure that America is a country that spreads tolerance instead of division.”

    so, it’s kind of a slap in the face, but he is opening up a pretty difficult dialogue with a very christian base…

    Ironically, I have heard many a tale of Ja Rule’s total gayness.
