Change of Program: Obama Campaign Adds Gay Minister to Gospel Tour

Oct 24, 2007 7:40pm

ABC News’ Sunlen Miller Reports: The presidential campaign of Sen. Barack Obama has responded to the recent controversy surrounding Donnie McClurkin, by adding a gay minister to the "Embrace the Change" gospel tour.

Obama was criticized by the gay community for including gospel singer McClurkin in their tour, as McClurkin has said that homosexuality is a choice. The senator’s choice of McClurkin became fodder on liberal blogs.

Now, the Obama campaign has newly added Rev. Andy Sidden who is openly gay, for an appearance on Sunday in South Carolina.

McClurkin is still scheduled to make an appearance for the concert.
