Posted on 01/10/2013 9:32:44 AM PST by rightwingintelligentsia
Rev. Louie Giglio, who had been announced as the pastor to give the benediction at the presidential inauguration, has now pulled himself out of the ceremony, after criticism of his previous anti-gay comments and actions, sources confirmed to ABC News.
Giglio, who is now Pastor at Passion City Church in Georgia and his role at Obamas second inauguration was first announced Tuesday. But the liberal website Thinkprogress reported Wednesday on audio of Giglioi delivering a sermon in the mid-1990s in which he said homosexuality is a sin and advocated gay recovery.

Jeremiah Wright should give the benediction. He can give his alternative response to “God Bless America”. At least it would be an honest reflection of the true convictions of the Imposter-In-Chief.
Funny how anti-White comments didn’t stop the pastor at his last inauguration.
I’m disappointed that Louie even accepted giving the benediction for this abortion-loving, anti-Christian, anti-Israeli, pro-Muslim, anti-American narcissist.
I am, however, pleased that he didn’t recant the stance he took in his sermon.
So he backed out because the truth offends these people? ‘Sounds like the majority of church “leaders” these days.
Maybe Rick Warren is availabile...
Why not just complete the farce and get the Rev. Al Sharpton to give the benediction wearing a hoodie with MSNBC silk screened across the front of it.
That was my first thought too....my daughter and some friends just went to the Passion Conference last week, and this pastor’s website espouses the right beliefs....so I’m wondering what led to his selection in the first place...
We’ve seen TD Jakes become a sycophantic sell out.....and then there’s Warren and Osteen.....
It ought to have been the opposite. He ought to have refused to give the benediction.
I’m going to be attending a Chris Tomlin concert in Baltimore in February where Louie is supposed to be talking as well.
I’m looking forward to is, and hope that he’s not moving toward the Warrens and Osteens of the world.
We must lovingly but firmly respond to the aggressive agenda of not all, but of many in the homosexual community. Underneath this issue is a very powerful and aggressive moment. That movement is not a benevolent movement, it is a movement to seize by any means necessary the feeling and the mood of the day, to the point where the homosexual lifestyle becomes accepted as a norm in our society and is given full standing as any other lifestyle, as it relates to family.
He and Tomlin seem to be joined at the hip, which I mention not as an editorial comment but simply to note that Tomlin and he often appear jointly.
Let us know if he is going off the deep end...especially since so many young adults are drinking his koolaid now. We need to make sure his koolaid is from the right vine......
