White House boots Pastor from inaugural benediction because he believes homosexuality is a sin


From the article;

"...A new chapter in America’s moral revolution came as Atlanta pastor Louie Giglio withdrew from giving the benediction at President Obama’s second inaugural ceremony. In a statement released to the White House and the Presidential Inaugural Committee, Giglio said that he withdrew because of the furor that emerged yesterday after a liberal watchdog group revealed that almost twenty years ago he had preached a sermon in which he had stated that homosexuality is a sin and that the “only way out of a homosexual lifestyle … is through the healing power of Jesus.”

In other words, a Christian pastor has been effectively disinvited from delivering an inaugural prayer because he believes and teaches Christian truth.

The fact that Giglio was actually disinvited was made clear in a statement from Addie Whisenant of the Presidential Inaugural Committee:

'We were not aware of Pastor Giglio’s past comments at the time of his selection, and they don’t reflect our desire to celebrate the strength and diversity of our country at this inaugural. Pastor Giglio was asked to deliver the benediction in large part because of his leadership in combating human trafficking around the world. As we now work to select someone to deliver the benediction, we will ensure their beliefs reflect this administration’s vision of inclusion and acceptance for all Americans.'

That statement is, in effect, an embarrassed apology for having invited Louie Giglio in the first place. Whisenant’s statement apologizes for the Presidential Inaugural Committee’s failure to make certain that their selection had never, at any time, for any reason, believed that homosexuality is less than a perfectly acceptable lifestyle. The committee then promised to repent and learn from their failure, committing to select a replacement who would “reflect this administration’s vision of inclusion and acceptance.”

The imbroglio over Louie Giglio is the clearest evidence of the new Moral McCarthyism of our sexually “tolerant” age. During the infamous McCarthy hearings, witnesses would be asked, “Are you now or have you ever been a member of the Communist Party?”

In the version now to be employed by the Presidential Inaugural Committee, the question will be: “Are you now or have you ever been one who believes that homosexuality (or bisexuality, or transsexualism, etc.) is anything less than morally acceptable and worthy of celebration?...”



Do we need any more proof that Christianity is under direct attack?

Now the Administration itself, quite openly, in fact, are saying that unless you as a Christian believe not as the Bible teaches, but as the Administration mandates, we don't want you to play in our yard.
The Founders of this Republic would vomit on Obama's Louis Vitton shoes.

Actually, I think they'd invite them him to a duel.

I would love to fist fight our commie in chief.
Every single day for the rest of my life.
Twice.
Even if by some miracle he whipped me every time.

I like Louie Giglio, but he withdrew, not booted.

I'd say he was probably asked to withdraw.

Under duress.

Screwed up country we have these days...

NO WAY he wasn't pressured to "withdraw".

They found out bout his sermon, and pressured him.
Simple.
It's the Chicago Way.
