Donnie McClurkin, gospel singer, is touring with Barack Obama to help raise funds for his campaign and run for the presidency. A gay rights group is urging Obama to drop McClurkin because of his opinions on homosexuality being a choice.
McClurkin is a Grammy Award winner who performed at the Republican National Convention in 2004. He told AP Radio in an interview that September that he was “once involved with those desires and those thoughts,” which he attributed to being raped at 8 and 13.
“That’s what thrust me into it, and then God delivered me from that and gave me back who I really am and my true purpose,” McClurkin said.
