Besen to Obama: Don’t embrace the change, drop McClurkin

Americablog and Wayne Besen have managed to whip the Obama “Embrace the Change” Gospel Tour into an AP story today.

I wrote Donnie McClurkin to ask him if he had changed his views on gay rights with no reply as yet. I also wonder if he is an Obama supporter — which would be a stretch from his Republican National Convention appearance in 2004. From the AP article, it does not appear that he has changed his views about his own experience or how to think about sexuality, but nothing is said about his political views.

Obama now seems to be in a difficult spot: keep McClurkin and send more gay supporters to Hillary or drop him and make a mess of his South Carolina strategy for wooing socially conservative Christians.

  1. It would be really great if Obama acted with integrity instead of doing what is most politically expedient, but I reckon those days are long gone. If he can’t or won’t support McGlurkin’s right to a different opinion and caves instead to pro-gay activism, I’ll be very disappointed in him and he’ll definitely lose any chance he had for my vote. It’ll be interesting to see how it all plays out.
