HRC Pussy Foots Obama Controversy

As gay activists and commentators come out against Barack Obama‘s anti-gay friend Donnie McClurkin, Human Rights Campaign has issued what may be the weakest “ultimatum” ever:

The Human Rights Campaign has expressed its strong reservations to Obama over his campaign-sponsored tour that features gospel singer Donnie McClurkin.

The influential organization, representing a powerful Democratic constituency, let Obama’s campaign know that it would issue a public demand if Obama did not immediately cancel the event, said a person who had been briefed on the exchange.

Why tell Obama? Why not just issue the statement and make your point? Unless, of course, they don’t have one.
