‘Stand’ singer Donnie McClurkin is standing in the need of prayer himself after Twitter got wind of his suggestion for Christians to stop protesting Donald Trump.
Much like fellow gospel singers Vicki Yohe and Tina Campbell (of Mary Mary) before him, McClurkin called for a “cease fire,” so to speak, among Christians who have expressed disasppointment in the current administration. Taking to Erica Campbell’s syndicated radio show, the Grammy winning vocalist stated:
“We need to know what our vote really means and how to utilize it. But I don’t want us to get caught up in this protest. The protests do nothing but rile [people] up. It causes people’s anger to rise up and it gives us a false sense of involvement.
…the true sense of involvement is at the voting booth.”
Needless to say, like Campbell and Yohe, McClurkin’s advice was met with backlash and ridicule. Read the OMG-worthy tweets inside:
Him: Donnie McClurkin wants us to stop protesting Trump.
Me: I want Donnie McClurkin to stop protesting homosexuality first pic.twitter.com/fEzrjDcCL2
