Does Bobby Jones personally resent Donnie McClurkin’s very vocal and public accounts of McClurkin’s deliverance from homosexuality? Here’s what Jones told AP music writer Nekesa Mumbi Moody what the church thought about McClurkin:
A lot of people resent the fact that he claims that he is no longer homosexual, that he was raped, and a lot of those kinds of things. A lot of your die-hard Christians just don’t care for that,” Jones says.
How strange that Jones would pin the alleged resentment on “die hard Christians”. What do you think he meant by “die-hard Christians”? It would seem he would say the opposite. Its been the liberal Christian crowd that has excoriated McClurkin most. Can this be a case of Jones airing his own feelings through mythical “die-hard Christians”?
