McClurkin used his personal story to demonize the lgbt community as a whole. During an appearance on the 700 Club in 2003, he accused the lgbt community of wanting to harm children:
McClurkin has accused gays of “trying to kill our children” and has called homosexuality “a curse”. The gospel singer who says he is a “reformed homosexual” in a 700 Club interview said he was ready to declare war on homosexuality.
From Wayne Besen:
McClurkin, currently a senor pastor at Perfecting Faith in Freeport, N.Y., was particularly outspoken against New York’s funding of Harvey Milk, a gay high school in New York, suggesting that the school will lead to molestation of children.
“The gloves are off,” he said on the Sept. 23, 2003 episode of Rev. Pat Robertson’s 700 Club. “And if there’s going to be a war, there’s going to be a war. But it will be a war with a purpose. This is not a privately funded school. It is a public school funded by taxpayers’ money. Why isn’t anyone else speaking out? Everyone knows that everyone at the high school is homosexual. That makes for an easy target.”
World Net Daily:
HRC condemns Mr. McClurkin . . . for the sin of publicly laying out the threat that the homosexual agenda poses to families and children
. . . But what really sticks in homosexual activists’ craw is Donnie McClurkin, who, they say, on “The 700 Club” “has accused gay Americans of trying to kill our children.” Mr. McClurkin, an accomplished gospel singer and author, overcame homosexuality himself.
What was that, Donnie? Killing children? Hurting children? I don’t know about anyone else, but the hubby and I are happy raising a son whose birthmother couldn’t raise him or give him the life she wanted him to have, and chose us to be his adoptive parents. This morning, I gave him his yogurt and orange juice for breakfast, helped him pick out some clothes for school today, zipped up his raincoat and gave him a hug and a kiss before he went out the door. Tomorrow, I’ll spend half the day with him and the rest of his class, on a field trip to a local pumpkin patch. Later this week, I’ll make a trip to the library and maybe make a sweet potato pie for him to take to school for “Share Your Culture Day” at school. This weekend, we’ll take him to a friend’s birthday party.
Killing children? Hurting children? Well, my son is very much alive and thriving, by just about every known standard for child development. So, how are we hurting him? Killing him? Probably just by being gay and being his parents.
But there’s a never-ending stream of stories about people who are much more successful at killing and harming children, and usually children they brought into the world.
Like heterosexual mom Johni Michelle Heuser, who apparently killed her daughter or found her dead, hid her body, and lead her husband — the father — to believe the baby was still alive, right up until he returned from Iraq.
Harmony Jude Creech apparently had been dead for weeks, Harnett County Sheriff Larry Rollins said late Saturday night. Rollins said the child’s mother, Johni Michelle Heuser, told investigators she had found the baby dead in its crib and put the body in the attic of her home.
Neighbors said they had been bothered by a foul smell for several weeks and that the smell only subsided recently when overnight temperatures dropped. Several neighbors said they had searched their yards for dead animals because of the smell.
Harmony’s father, Ronald Earl Creech II, returned to North Carolina from a 15-month deployment in Iraq on Friday hoping to see his daughter. Harmony was born while he was overseas, police said.
Like heterosexual father Randall Alters, who beat his seven-week-old baby.
On Friday in La Salle County Circuit Court, an Earlville man pleaded guilty to repeatedly striking his 7-week-old baby son in the head.
Randall L. Aters, last listed at a mobile home park at 446 E. 1251st Road, pleaded guilty to aggravated battery to a child. In exchange for his plea, prosecutor Greg Sticka said he will not request more than 15 years in prison for the 28-year-old Aters. Circuit Judge H. Chris Ryan Jr. set sentencing for Friday, Nov. 30.
Ryan warned Aters he doesn’t have to go along with Sticka’s request and could sentence to as long as 30 years in prison. Regardless of the sentence, Aters will have to serve at least 85 percent of it.
Sticka said that on Nov. 8, the baby’s mother left the child with Aters for a few hours. Some time after returning, she noticed the baby’s head was swelling and was bruised. The baby’s condition worsened, so the baby was taken to a hospital where medical staff became suspicious.
Aters at first denied knowledge of how the injuries occurred, but then said he had been carrying the child, slipped and the child struck a countertop. However, while Earlville police were questioning him the same day, he admitted the baby’s crying annoyed him, so he punched the baby in the head more than once, fracturing his skull.
Like Valerie Kennedy, an apparently heterosexual mom who scalded her son for soiling his diaper.
A Broward jury on Monday found Kennedy, 32, guilty of aggravated manslaughter and aggravated child abuse in the 2006 death of 3 ½-year-old Jaquez Mason.
…The trial was marked by gruesome photos of Jaquez’s burned body and testimony from Kennedy’s 9-year-old daughter, who blocked her mother from view as she described how “Ms. Kennedy burned him up.”
Jaquez died on Jan. 1, 2006, a week after he and several siblings spent Christmas with Kennedy at her Coral Springs apartment.
They lived in Deerfield Beach with their grandmother, Annie Williams, who had custody.
During the trial, Tate said Kennedy put her son in the scalding water because she was angry at him for soiling his diaper.
Kennedy’s daughter, Demerasia, told jurors her mother held Jaquez down by the shoulder and wouldn’t let him out, even though he cried, “It’s hot.”
”He struggled,” Tate told jurors in her closing arguments last week. “You see signs of that struggle all over his body.”
An expert for the state testified that it would have taken a minimum of 20 seconds for Jaquez to sustain the severe burns over nearly 70 percent of his body.
Heterosexual dad Tony Servizi allegedly shook his three week old baby so hard that the child, now five years old, remains blind and disabled.
Austin Keel is now 5.
When he was injured, Fairfield police said they suspected Servizi might have had something to do with it.
But, they said they never had enough evidence to charge him.
Since Servizi was charged earlier this month with child abuse in a Hamilton County case, Butler County is re-examining its evidence.
“I would love for my son to look at me and hug me and say, ‘I love you’,” Laura Keel said.
But that’s something Austin Keel will never be able to do.
“He can’t walk. He can’t talk. He can’t crawl. He can’t see,” Keel said.
Keel said she woke up one morning to find her son lethargic and very pale.
His condition got worse and he was rushed to the hospital.
“Then they diagnosed him with shaken baby syndrome and a skull fracture, and that’s when Tony ran from the hospital,” Keel said.
Servizi is Austin’s biological father.
And Servizi has been accused of hurting a child earlier this year.
Servizi is in the Hamilton County jail awaiting trial on charges he abused a 2-year-old girl earlier this year.
“I think there is a significant charge down there in Hamilton County that is strikingly similar,” Piper said.
In the Hamilton County case, Servizi is accused of shaking, stomping and beating his girlfriend’s daughter – for soiling her diaper – so severely she suffered a lacerated liver and severe facial and head bruising.
In the Butler County case, Servizi was one of five adults in the house when Austin Keel was injured – Laura Keel, his mother; Servizi; Servizi’s father and two adult relatives.
No charges were brought in that case because all of the Servizis got lawyers and refused to talk to Fairfield police.
Time and guilty consciences should lead to an arrest, Piper said.
They should, but then you have to consider that the father who raised Servizi is one of the witnesses who refused to talk to police. And you have to remember that the fruit doesn’t fall too far from the tree.
It’s not always their own children they harm. Heterosexual mom Lisa Montgomery hurt a child — and killed its mother — when she tried to cut the child from its mother’s womb.
Jurors convicted Lisa Montgomery, 39, of kidnapping resulting in death in the 2004 attack on 23-year-old Bobbie Jo Stinnett in the northwest Missouri town of Skidmore.
… Montgomery had undergone a tubal ligation in 1990 after the birth of her fourth child. But soon after, she began falsely reporting a series of pregnancies. In 2004, she claimed to be due in mid-December.
Ketchmark said Montgomery believed her ex-husband, Carl Boman, would expose that she was lying about being pregnant and use it against her as he sought custody of two of the couple’s four children. A custody hearing had been set for January 2005.
Montgomery’s mother and sister also had been telling Montgomery’s husband and his parents that it was impossible for her to carry a child.
As Montgomery’s purported December 13, 2004, due date approached, she began conducting Internet searches on Stinnett and researching different aspects of childbirth. The defense portrayed those efforts as evidence that she believed she was pregnant; the prosecution called them proof of premeditation.
Prosecutors said Montgomery used a rope to choke Stinnett, who was eight months pregnant. But Stinnett was conscious and trying to defend herself as Montgomery used a kitchen knife to cut the baby girl from the womb, prosecutors said.
And just to show that I’m not claiming that gay parents are perfect angels compared to heterosexual parents, some of us are poisonous parents, like Monique Anita Eliot.
Neighbors say they never suspected a thing.
Theresa Johnson said, “I would hear them cry sometimes like normal, and you would hear some yelling. You know, mothers will yell. But I never would have imagined she would have been beating on her kids.”
But on the afternoon of Aug. 15th, an ambulance and police showed up at the apartment. Neighbor Genie Goel remembers the whole thing.
“The little girl was on a stretcher and was on an oxygen mask and they had a neck collar on her neck,” Genie Goel said.
Two months later, that child is still in a coma.
An arrest warrant says the child suffered three strokes inside the apartment she called home after Elliott and Williams beat her with cords and belts. The two children were also forced to squat while holding phone books over their heads for a period of time and then do push ups.
A criminal complaint says the little girl was also choked. 911 wasn’t called until the next day.
The point isn’t that heterosexuals hurt children. The point isn’t that gay people hurt children. The point isn’t that being heterosexual automatically makes you a good or bad parent. The point isn’t that being gay automatically makes you a good or bad parent. The point isn’t that being heterosexual automatically makes you a good or bad person. It’s not that being gay automatically makes you a good or bad person.
The point is that we are equal, and that means having equal capacity for good and bad. Because we are equally human.
