Gospel star Donnie McClurkin made headlines several years ago, when he claimed god "delivered" him from homosexuality.
Now, he's sounding off about a decision by D.C. leaders, to cancel his appearance at a concert over the weekend.
McClurkin was set to perform at a concert on Saturday, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington.
In a video, McClurkin says he was on his way to the airport, when Mayor Vincent Gray's office called him to tell him his appearance was cancelled.
"These are bully tactics simply because of stances that I took, never ever demeaning, never ever derogatory, any lifestyle - this is a civil rights infringement situation," McClurkin said.
This is shameful. But, it isn't unexpected. We are headed toward a culture where this is going to become more and more common. Msgr. Pope has more thoughts here.
