Pastor drops out of inauguration after anti-gay comments surface1/10/2013
The pastor who was set to lead the benediction at President Obama's inauguration later this month has dropped out of the ceremony because of criticism over anti-gay comments he made in the 1990s. The Rev. Louie Giglio is the pastor at Passion City Church in Roswell, Ga., and had been announced as a participant in the inauguration on Jan. 21. However, a sermon in which Giglio called for gay people to undergo therapy and urged his congregation to reject the "homosexual lifestyle" has nixed those plans. Addie Whisenant, a spokeswoman for the inaugural committee, said organizers weren't aware of Giglio's comments at the time of his selection. [Source]
