Donnie McClurkin may claim he’s straight and not a homophobe, but journo Clay Cane found an anonymous man who allegedly carried on a three-year affair with the gospel-singing reverend. Check out this exchange:
CC: During this time to 2001 to 2004 is really the height of his anti-gay rants. The book came out, he made comments, he told the New York Times in 2002 he’s counseling adolescent boys to convert them from homosexuality. Would you hear about these rants?
Rob: Every time I’d read an article in Ebony or Jet, or whatever, I’d just hear it–I’d get upset and we’d always have an argument about it. He said, “I told you.” I said, “It’s crazy. What you’re doing is crazy. You’re writing this stuff, but yet you’re still doing it.” I said, “I have a problem with that. What’s wrong with you?” He said, “I have a problem.”
CC: What do you think he meant by “I have a problem”?
Rob: It’s something he just can’t control. He feels that he has to say that to please people. He said, “I don’t want people to believe that I’m still doing it.”
And there’s much, much more…
