Supposed ex gay preacher Donnie McClurkin has come under fire recently for preaching that “you can pray the gay away” and also “calling gays vampires” among other things. Donnie, Donnie, Donnie, you have just opened up a can of gay community worms. Although, I am a spiritual person I don’t know if I can call myself religious. There is a difference to me. Also, I do believe that there are certain addictions and negative behaviors that prayer, discipline of the mind, focus of energy and support from family can deliver you from. However, I do not consider being gay, a negative behavior, addiction or a perversion. Color me open minded, but I believe that there are other behaviors happening in the world that are far worse and that deserve far more prayer and attention than someone’s sexuality and dating preference. Like the recent up-spring of young mothers killing their toddlers simply because they do not want to be bothered with them or feel as if they are preventing them from having a social life. Such is the case of Caylee Anthony, whose mom was clubbing while her child was “missing”.

Now, there are people who claim that God has delivered them from being gay. Donnie McClurkin is one of those people. I do not think you can truly escape being gay. I think you can suppress your urges but they never completely go away. I do not think that it is as simple as a choice, similar to choosing not to eat meat anymore. I think sexuality, gender identity, and preference runs deeper than that. They are qualities that are embedded in us from birth. They may lie dormant in us at some points of our life but they still exist. Also, while he is spending so much time praying for the gays? He NEEDS to be extending that prayer to the people who are putting their kids in washing machines and selling them to grown men for sex. Such as the recent case of Shaniya Davis whose last hours on earth I would not want to imagine in my worst nightmare. Why is he not praying for children like her and their mothers alike? Could it be because he himself is presently STILL struggling with his past lifestyle? I cannot understand why he is choosing to focus on a person’s right to their sexuality when there are other relevant issues in today’s world that are in a dire state. He also NEEDS to send a prayer up to our young people who are killing each other for no reason and their first reaction instead of calling for help is to tape record it with their camera phone. This is the case of Chicago’s Derrion Albert. Pray for them to learn compassion, concern, and love for others. Or perhaps even the many men and women who are dying in Iraq to this day. This is why I cannot in good conscious, demonize, criticize, or judge a person’s sexuality when we have people in the world committing truly evil acts. They are the one’s who need much more help, assistance and much prayer.
McClurkin has the right to believe what he wants and even preach what he wants. He also has the right to feel that he has been completely “cured” of his homosexuality lifestyle. It would be nice, however, if that same energy was placed into him suggesting ways to help save our youth. To keep them from making life altering mistakes, teach them how to love each other and not be so cold and monstrous to each other. Rather than teach them how to judge each other and demonize people’s sexuality. Teach them to judge a person on his character, morality, heart, conscious, and the way he treats other people.
