I think we're jumping the gun on this. Barack Obama has mad eit known that he does not condone homophobia and has spoken out on the homophobia of the black church on numerous occassions. While I do disagree with some of the choices he's selected (Donnie, Mary Mary, Hezekiah) he has chosen Byron Cage who is gay-friendly and also has spoken out against homophobia and whats hes trying to do here is reach out to the blakc church which we cant fault him for. Let's not do to him what we did to Patti LaBelle when she sang at Bishop Long's church. Obama in '08

Obama's words:

“I have clearly stated my belief that gays and lesbians are our brothers and sisters and should be provided the respect, dignity, and rights of all other citizens. I have consistently spoken directly to African-American religious leaders about the need to overcome the homophobia that persists in some parts our community so that we can confront issues like HIV/AIDS and broaden the reach of equal rights in this country,” Obama said in the written statement.

“I strongly believe that African Americans and the LGBT community must stand together in the fight for equal rights. And so I strongly disagree with Reverend McClurkin’s views and will continue to fight for these rights as President of the United States to ensure that America is a country that spreads tolerance instead of division,” the statement added.

But this probably won't be enough, based on what I've read in these comments.

Not the best decision on Obama's part but probably not a deal breaker.

None of this surprises me. I predicted Obama's approach warning my political associates in Iowa a year ago. Only a secular candidate will get my vote. Now who is that?

Really I'm trying to figure out which one of you guys are really black, better yet which one of you are truly men and women of God. It seems to me that you all are faking the funk being something you really are not born and created to be. But i guess you are all black because since the begin of time we have been the only race not supportive of one another be it male or female if Donnie is not true to God then trust me he will have to answer to God Not man Obama, if it is God's will for you to be President, then God bless you to run this country in the manner that God has called it to be ran. And it will not have to do with black, white gay or straight, But! it will be the will of our Father, Oh Pastor Donnie you were right the book on CD is good, but i like the hard copy better i purchase the CD at the 50 celebration for EC Reems luncheon in San Francisco.

These lousy "Christian" hypocrites do not pay heed to ANY of Leviticus except the one thing about gays. If you are an adulterer you need to be killed - if you eat shellfish you must be banished from society. No shrimp? There goes the south! I hope every gay man walks out of his Church this Sunday -- I would love to see them try to funciton with NO Choir director, NO musicians, half a choir, and half the staff gone!!!

I'm not concerned with the senators action but rather Mcclurkin's. I would think he would have a problem suppose someone with liberal views like the senator especially on issue such as gays. Gays should not have any special rights or privileges based on sexual belief. Rev keep preaching your message and while u with the senator maybe u can share Jesus with him also
