According to eurweb.com Pastor Donnie McClurkin has shown no tolerance for homosexuality calling gays “vampires” and “perversions.”
His anti-gay rants were videotaped at the Church of God in Christ’s Holy Convocation Youth Service in Memphis last weekend and were uploaded to Youtube.com.
McClurkin, who is admittedly ex-gay, lambasted Tonex, the gospel star who recently confirmed his long-rumored homosexuality. According to reports, McClurkin said Tonex is a “perversion” and must pray away the gay.
“God did not call young people to such perversion. Society has failed him, his church has failed him … I would be homosexual to this day if Jesus hadn’t delivered (me). “I see feminine men, feminine boys, everywhere I go … No, don’t applaud ‘cuz it ain’t funny. It’s because we failed. I see them everywhere.”
In a second video, McClurkin turns his hate toward young lesbians saying …
“These young girls are just as bad as the boys in homosexuality, you don’t see it. They can hide … but there are some evil young hard butch girls.”
The COGIC is embroiled in numerous lawsuits, criminal investigations and internal church investigations around sexual abuse involving clergy.
McClurkin recently suggested he still had gay sexual urges and compared homosexuality to diabetes saying …
“I don’t eat sugar, but it doesn’t mean that I don’t want sugar.”
