"Who would think we would live to see the day when a black Mayor of the District of Columbia would use not only local but federal funds to ban a Grammy-award winning black pastor from performing at a concert in honor of Rev. King because -- he believes and says that Christ liberated him from 'the sin of homosexuality.'
"Mayor Vincent Grey admits he made the decision to ban Donnie McClurkin from singing, in spite of a signed contract to do so, because gay activists consider him too controversial -- calling him vile and claiming his performance would be at odds with the spirit of Dr. King.
"The black churches in D.C. are up in arms, but they are not yet able to dislodge the new man-made moral law: 'Thou shall affirm all things homosexual no matter what the Bible says.'"
