Turns out he’s bipolar, had stopped taking his meds, and has already been kicked out of the ministry’s Build-A-Breeder home for wayward Xtians for being a “compulsive ...

HomoQuotable – Donnie McClurkin

“I’m going to say something that’s going to get me in trouble. They accuse me of being anti-gay and a bigot. We don’t believe in discrimination.

HomoQuotable – Wayne Besen

“We strongly urge Obama to part ways with this divisive preacher who is clearly singing a different tune than the stated message of the campaign.
