AFFA Reacts to Ex-Gay Obama Tour

Posted by Greg Hambrick on Tue, Oct 23, 2007 at 1:36 PM

With it's oh-so-spot-on new tagline, "Acceptance Without Exception," the Alliance for Full Acceptance sent a call out to members this afternoon to let the Obama campaign know if they're upset about the anti-gay gospel singers joining Obama on his three-city tour.

Donnie McClurkin's ministry only serves to create an environment where discrimination and prejudice flourish, something we do not expect from Senator Obama in his campaign. Mr. McClurkin's stance toward the GLBT community rejects the DNC plan for inclusion and acceptance.

Many people have asked, "What can we do?"

· If Senator Obama wants to raise the issue of homophobia in our community, it ought to be done in clear and constructive ways.

· Tell him.

· If you think it is wrong to include in a presidential campaign a preacher who clearly seeks to demean healthy GLBT people choosing to live openly and honestly, contact Senator Obama's campaign.

· Tell him:
